Scenario 1. Balustrades with a fall of less than 1 meter to the area below (ie the furthest someone could fall if they fell off the edge of your deck).
In this case a balustrade is not required so you can space the wire at your own discretion and place your posts at any distance you like. We would recommend spacing your wires at between 100mm and 200mm and your posts at around 2 meters apart.
Scenario 2. Balustrades with a fall of between 1 and 4 meters.
The top of your handrail on your balustrade must be at least 1m from the floor of your deck and we recommend using a top rail of at least 40mm thick (either timber or steel).
When using Hydraulic Swaged (Preswaged Kits) with 1x19 wire or Handswaged with 7x7 wire the spacing between wires needs to be 80mm and we recommend the distance between posts no more than 1.5meters. Using a top rail at 1m off the ground and at least 40mm thick you would need to use 11 wires.
Runs of wire can only be installed in straight lines and must be terminated at each corner.
We recommend a maximum length of any run to be 10 meters. If you have a straight line of over 10 meters you should terminate on one side of a centre post and start a new run on the other.
Scenario 3. Balustrades with a fall of over 4 meters.
Horizontal wires cannot be used. You would then need to use vertical wires.
