Helpful Hints for Ordering - FAQs - click hereBannister Ropes - choice of colours

Q) How long is a bannister rope?
A) We can make it to the exact length you order. (If you need help in converting your measurements to metres and centimetres, just ask!) All ropes tend to stretch slightly in use. A rope that is fitted straight and taut will, after a week or so, stretch sufficiently to give a slight sag between the support brackets. If, however, you require a marked drape between the support brackets, please add 5% to the taut length.

Q) How many support brackets are needed?
A) We recommend one per metre plus one extra. e.g. a four metre rope will require five brackets. These will be fixed to the rope at equal intervals unless you specify otherwise, when ordering.

Q) How should the metal brackets (Brass or Chrome or Matt Black finish) be fixed to the wall?
A) We recommend the use of our wooden bracket mounts (one for each support bracket) to enable you to fix the bannister rope securely. (Screws not supplied for wall mounting.)
