MULTI-BARRETTE specifications with their flexible cables require special tensioning systems. For example, strong round rods are incorporated into the mesh. Depending on the size of the elements intermediate moutings are required in addition to the standard top and bottom mountings. The solution offered below is a standard mounting system for MULTI-BARRETTE. However bespoke solutions can be made to meet your specific project requirements.
Each mesh element is supplied with integrated round bars with attached eyebolts. The mesh element can then be fastened to a sub-structure at the top (such as angle iron).
An intermediate fixing may be required to reduce the amount of deflection and loads. One way of realising this is by using HAVER wire connectors, which wrap around a tube, that is located behind the mesh. The connectors interlock with the mesh from the back. From the front of the element this mounting system is almost invisible.
Corresponding with the top mounting a round bar is integrated into the MULTI-BARRETTE mesh. Eyebolts are incorporated to tension the panels, for example using a continuous substructure like an angle iron. The eyebolts allow accurate setting of the tension.
For wire cloth specifications made from solid wires or other mesh types we offer a variety of tensioning systems. Depending on the dimensions of the panels, intermediate mountings may need to be included into the system as well as the regular top and bottom mountings.
A flat tension profile (tension strip) is equipped with clevis bolts. Using the bolts the mesh element is suspended into the substructure. At the same time the bolts are used to apply tension at the top mounting point.
For bottom mountings the use of flat tension profiles is recommended. Proper tensioning is achieved with clevis screws that are attached to the flat tension profile which correspond to the top mounting.For exterior applications, structural characteristics require the use of additional pressure springs. They lend sufficient elasticity to the mesh when exposed to respective loads.
