TECNI designed its 'Standard' Vertical Balustrading system with 2.5mm cable both for strength and aesthetic appeal. The majority of the fitting sits inside the handrail and bottom rail to minimise disruption of views.
Why choose Vertical Wire Balustrades? Vertical wire balustrades offer the same characteristics as horizontal wire balustrades such as free flowing air, no disruption of views, modern, sleek appearance but without the limitations on building regulations. Please note we recommend you always consult with your local Building Inspector to confirm your specific design and application will be allowed.
Due to natural deflection of wire, TECNI recommends maximum spacings of 80mm between vertical wires.
The system is designed to be DIY so that it can be installed without any specialist tools or training required and very little maintenance, if any is required.
Customer note: Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, TECNI can also recommend other suitable wire rope end fittings for vertical balustrading systems. Recently, for example, we designed a 3mm vertical balustrade system in Sue and Tim's house which featured on the BBC's programme "House That 100k Built : Final Fix".
