The cranked support is used to secure the TruGuard Rotating Anti Climb System over fences, walls and gates. It can also be used under the eaves of buildings to prevent unwanted access to roofs.
They are manufactured from a 40mm x 8mm steel bar for maximum strength and galvanised to EN ISO 1461 for corrosion resistance. They have two slots for the fixing bolts (available separately), this enables secure fixing to palisade fencing, posts, gates and walls. A 27mm diameter hole at one end allows the central shaft to pass through.
The recommended maximum span between supports is 2m. This is not always possible or convenient, especially when fixing to posts that are already in situ. If you are not able to fix the cranked support at 2m centres we advise using the high strength shaft.
The 45° crank to these supports enable them to be fixed to the inside face of walls, fences and gates offering security and making it difficult to tamper with. The crank also enables the TruGuard system to project beyond the fence line, return inside the fence line or be positioned centrally over walls.
The TruGuard cranked supports can be securely fixed to concrete or masonry with TruGuard M8 through bolts (available separately). When fixing to steel palisade fencing, carriage bolts or standard nut, bolt and washers can be used with TruGuard threadlocking adhesive or we would further recommend the use of shear nuts.
TruGuard cranked supports are fabricated from aluminium and can be supplied in a polyester powder coated finish in any standard RAL colour.
