This kit is intended for use on masonry substrates only. If you require post & wire to be used on other substrates then you should consider using our surface mount kit or our range of specialist brackets for gutters, steel beams and pipes or rails.
This kit provides sufficient materials for a run of front 130mm double-head posts followed by a parallel second row (max 65mm behind first row) of single-head 150mm posts.
Once the posts are seated in their 25mm nylon masonry anchor rivets the heads of the posts will be at 105mm and 125mm.
Maximum linear distance between pigeon wire posts = 1500mm (1.5m).
Pigeon wire should be spring tensioned every 1500mm (1.5m) along its run, i.e. the wire should stop at a spring on each post and start with a newly crimped section of the other side of the post.
In doing so you are spreading the load evenly across the post system and thus avoiding spring overload.
Do not thread the pigeon wire through the eyelets of the post and onwards to the next post, as this will cause the system to sag and go out of shape.
The system should be counter-tensioned at the end of each run using the screw-pin and plugs provided. To avoid the system from sagging do not use springs in the counter-tension wires.
