Pepairing a deck between 1.0 m and 2.1m off the ground

Hello, I am thinking of replacing the treated pine deck and replacing it with merbau or spotted gum. At the same time replacing the vertical timber slats with Stainless steel wire. The height of the top hand rail is in excess of 1.00M. The distance between the posts varies from 80cm and 356cm . Can you advise the distance required between the posts if I go ahead with the stainless wire. There are 9 cypress posts in total 100 x 100mm, incl. gateThree of the posts hold up a colourbond bullnose roof 140cm wide. (the larger span of 356cm is between two of these posts) The shape of the deck is an axehandle, the total area aprox. 28 sq. metres. Sorry I cannot send a photo. Can you help?
Regards Jim.

Hi Jim,

Spotted gum is more durable than Merbau.

Stainless wires need to be installed by an experienced installer as spacing CANNOT exceed 125mm under pressure.
