A wire-rope cable system is the most common method of attaching netting to hard surfaces such as cement, brickwork and colorbond fences. This is also the method employed for the majority of professionally installed enclosures. It is cost effective, gives a neat and professional finish and requires the least amount of drilling.
This method involves the installation of a STEEL WIRE ROPE which sits flush against your wall and then then acts as a support for net hanging. The netting is then attached to the rope using our C-CLIPS or cable ties.
How To Measure Up and Order
Step 1: Measure the length of wire required. This may be the length of a wall, the perimeter of a balcony or other. Try to keep the length of any one individual run of wire to a maximum of 20m.
Step 2: Determine which type of eyelet to use:
- Dynabolt Eyelets - Brick, Concrete, Hard Surfaces
- Screw Eyelets - Timber
- Colorbond Eyelets - Colorbond Fences, Metal
- Bolt Eyelets - Miscellaneous
Calculate the amount of eyelets you will require to guide the wire along its path. We generally recommend 2 per metre plus any additional guiding the wire around corners etc.
Step 3: For each run of wire you should order 1 turnbuckle and two wire rope grips. The turnbuckle will tension the wire and the wire grips will hold the wire in position at each end.
Step 4: Weave black rope through the edge of the netting to create a strong seam. Then use 10 C-Clips per metre to attach the netting to the stainless wire cable.
