4mm stainless steel (marine grade) tension wire system. Suitable
for most timber to timber applications.
3 Options on wire type as
shown are offered. 7x7 being the standards for type 1: 7x19
being the standard for type 2 and 3.
1x19 Strand 7x7
These assemblies are made
to measure,the terminations being hydraulically pressed onto
the wire. This giving a professional and permanent connection.
Type 1: Spans up to 3.5 mtr
Type 2: Spans up to 10 mtr
Type 3: Spans up to 20 mtr
Type 1 is suitable for straight
Type 2 and 3 can be used around
corners, a diagonal through hole of 6.5mm being require through
any corner post.
Installation is simply a matter
of drilling small pilot holes and screwing in the "dual
thread screws" at the end termination posts.
Through holes being drilled
in any mid posts. 8mm diameter for Type 1, 6.5mm diameter
for type 2 and 3.
Once the wires have been run
through mid posts, connections to the "dual thread screws"
can be made. Connections as per upper images.
Type 1: Achieved
by rotation of the wire assembly and inside thread terminals.
NOTE: this system used left and right hand
terminations. One at each end.
Type 2 and 3: Achieved
by rotation of the tension bodies.
After tensioning, all lock
nuts must be nipped up.
HOW TO MEASURE UP
The measurements required
are the inside of end post dimensions.
ie: face to face, the points
at which the "dual thread screws" would be inserted.
Where the wire is to run through
a corner post, the post must be drilled at 45 degrees. A measurement
taken across the post.
