Description

This fitting is used in conjunction with the M6 Left Thread Terminal (SSW070-6) for use on metal posts.

The flip lock feature of the connector allows for this fitting to be used on a hollow metal posts in both a horizontal and angled (stair) application.

316 Stainless Steel.

For the Horizontal balustrade; drill an 8.5mm hole into the wall of the post, then insert the fitting. The flip section will then engage and will stop the fitting from pulling out of the post.

For an Angled balustrade (such as on a staircase); drill a 10.0mm hole into the wall of the post, then insert the fitting. The flip section will then engage and will stop the fitting from pulling out of the post.

Can it be used for exterior application?

As it is 316 Stainless Steel it is more than suitable to be used inside or outside.

Cleaning & Maintenance

Without regular cleaning and maintenance discolouration of the surface of the stainless steel by corrosion (tea staining) can occur.

How to reduce the risk of tea staining

  • Absence of corrosives – especially salt, chlorine, cleaning acids etc.
  • Atmospheric Conditions – lower temperatures and low humidity are better.
  • Surface orientation – Open exposure to rain washing is better
  • Surface Finish – In general a smoother finish is better. where practical mirror polish finish may perform better than a brushed finish.
  • Chemical cleanliness or passivation of the surface improves corrosion resistance
  • Appropriate grade selection for conditions
  • Regular Maintenance to limit the accumulation of corrosives
