TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

The TruGuard Rotating Anti Climb System is manufactured from the aluminium alloy 6082, a high strength alloy with excellent corrosion resistance. It has the highest strength of the 6000 series alloys and is known as a structural alloy. The addition of a large amount of manganese controls the grain structure which in turn results in a stronger product and performance.

The TruGuard Spurs are manufactured in the T4 temper. This allows us to form the section into the iconic TruGuard shape. The act of forming the Spurs also work hardens the material giving it higher tensile strength and proof stress figures. The TruGuard Central Shafts are extruded in the T6 temper which results in the shaft having the highest possible tensile strength.
