Where would you normally use an intermediate balustrade post ?
To support a wire cable balustrade on a deck or balcony.
On a wire balustrade, you need to have a support post approximately every 1.5 metres (when using 3.2mm wire cable).
The minimalist look of the intermediate post allows you to space your major posts every 3 metres, with the intermediate post going in-between.
The T plate at the top and bottom of the post is not able to be put on an angle, which means that this post can ONLY be used for flat (horizontal) balustrade.
What handrail can be used with this post ?
Balustrade must be 1m in height (measured from the deck to top of handrail). This post is 960mm, so the handrail must be flat and be a minimum of 40mm thick and 65mm wide. (The flat plate on the top and bottom comes pre-drilled and is 65mm wide and 75mm long.)
Does it come pre-drilled ?
Yes, there are 11 holes each of 8mm diameter. They are spaced 80mm apart so as to conform to regulations for wire cable balustrade.
What is it made out of ?
Aluminium that has been powdercoated in a matt black finish.
What are the important dimensions ?
