Balustrade Rigging Tension Gauge

Balustrade Rigging Tension Gauge is used to check the tension of installed cable (wire rope). A Tension Gauge works with both manually and hydraulically swaged fittings.  These are hand tools you should probably have hanging around to make sure the job is done RIGHT!

The Low Cost Wire Tension Gauge is what you need to ensure that your wires are properly tightened – its  actually a technical process – you don’t just hook them up and twist and hope…

The Balustrade Rigging Tension Gauge is an easy to use tool that allows the user to determine the amount of tension on each wire.  The matrix table on the gauge – and the interpretation table provided with the gauge – matches the tension and spacing required as per NCC regulations making it perfect for installing and planning future wire balustrade projects.

Application:

Wire balustrade regulations in Australia (As per NCC 2016) are often perceived as being confusing and hard to interpret. It is common for customers to find tension tables confusing as well as understand the best wire diameter/ construction to use.

Wire balustrade regulations are laid out in the National Construction Code (NCC) and  have remained largely unchanged since 2005. We can supply a copy of the regulations in PDF form – or you can check our FAQs for a current on-line copy.

With some basic understanding of the regulations and types of wire used it is easy to achieve a wire balustrade design that will satisfy regulations and pass inspection.  Install the wire – check the outcome ….Simple…

With 1000’s sold worldwide- this time proven unit is a massive bargain. Just finish a wire, position the tool over the wire, and check if it will pass… Your clients and the NCC will love you.
