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 wood may differ from time to time so no specific type is quoted. All Mounts are suitable for wood staining, varnishing, painting and oil.
If corners are to be considered, we require measurements from the first bracket to the corner, and from the corner to the end bracket.
If you need further help on getting your measurement as accurate as possible, or you require any more information on anything on our website, please contact us directly for advice.
You don’t need to have a drape on your bannister rope, but please bear in mind that all rope has a tendency to expand and contract in length and girth.
If you would like a drape please add the following to your your overall length.
Slight drape – 5%
Large drape – 10%

Due to the way we make our bannister ropes the man rope knots or rope splices can not be undone once the rope is complete.
