Wooden Mounts For Fittings
Handmade Wooden Mounts made especially for RopeServices UK. We recommend using Wooden Mounts with all Bannister Rope Fittings, they fit every size bracket sold from 24mm to 36mm. As they are handmade the type of rope may differ from time to time so no specific type is quoted. All Mounts are suitable for wood staining, varnishing, painting and oil.
Attaching Wooden Mounts.
We recommend every bracket bought uses a Wooden Mount. We can guarantee that our Wooden Mounts would fit any brackets not bought from us as they are designed to fit our brackets.
All Mounts are pre-drilled to suit a number 10 countersunk wood screw. If you require to use a larger screw we recommend re-drill the hole to stop the wood from splitting.
Please make sure that the correct screw is used for the job. it is recommended that 2 1/2″ (60mm) screw is generally sufficient but you must make sure that it has penetrated well beyond the plaster and into the solid brick or stone.
Align the holes in the mount to run in line with the rope, this will enable the bracket screw to avoid the steel screws when fixing.
If drilling through dry lined or plasterboard walls, it is recommended that extra precaution is taken because of the gaps behind the boards, some sort of infill or reinforcement may be required.
IF YOU ARE IN ANYWAY UNSURE OF THE FIXINGS PLEASE TAKE EXPERT ADVICE FROM A SUITABLE JOINER OR BUILDER.
