This stainless steel wire rope balustrade can be made the length you require. You just select the wire diameter and assembly length in metres to suit your needs (max length 30m).
The wire used in this assembly is 1x19. This was selected for its strength.
End 1: A fully machined swage fork
End 2: Machined fork and Sta-Lok stud tensioner (For use where the assembly length is unknown)
The machined fork ends make this system stronger and more elegant than the classic infill cable system.
The Sta-Lok stud in the tensioner allows you to terminate the wire at the tensioner end using just simple hand tools. A huge advantage where the exact system length is unknown.
System lengths up to 30 metres are available.
Your system length is measured in metres from pin centre to pin centre as shown in the image above.

All measurements in mm
The tensioner is threaded left hand one end and right hand the other. +/- adjustment is achieved by rotation of the tensioner body in a clockwise/anti-clockwise direction.
Once adjusted the tensioner is locked in place using the hex nuts on the Sta-Lok stud end.
Clevis pins are locked with split pins which are supplied as standard at both ends.
Ready to Install
Wire rope balustrade systems are supplied ready to install. The tensioner is set to mid point which allows equal adjustment in and out (+/-).
With the self-assembly tensioner you have the added comfort of being able to adjust the system length on site. Just be sure to order a system length long enough to cover all eventualities.
