As a corner post to structurally support a horizontal cable balustrade on a deck or balcony. Which saddles go with this post ? Curved Saddle Flat Saddle Curved Corner Saddle Flat Corner Saddle Why are some posts 1.6mm and others are 3.0mm ?
This refers to the wall thickness of the post.
In most cases the 1.6mm wall thickness will be enough for use on corner, end and intermediate posts with glass balustrade.
For wire balustrade, you may want to consider going with the heavier 3.0mm wall thickness; particularly in the case of a free standing end post where the correct legal tension required for the wire cable could cause the post to distort. For intermediate; the 1.6mm wall thickness is usually enough. What is it made out of ?
316 Stainless Steel in a Mirror Polish Finish. How should you fasten it to the ground/deck ?
Due to the large number of surfaces that the post could be fixed to, we do not supply any fasteners.
We suggest that you speak to a local hardware store for more info.
The heavy duty base plate is supplied with 3 grub screws that can be adjusted to aid in the levelling of the post.
