As a cable tensioner in wire and cable trellises (and economical alternative to the turnbuckle M6 SP 06230. The open hook of SP 05160 is suspended directly, i.e. without further connecting elements, in wall eyelets from FassadenGrün. An 'O-ring' is requiredas a link/intermediate element for suspension in ground anchors. For wire and cable up to approx. 3 mm diameter. In the case of high vertical cables, you'll need to consider whether you want to attach the tensioner at the top or bottom. A high installation is tamper-proof and therefore preferable in public street areas. But the advantage of lower installations is that the turnbuckle is more accessible if re-tensioning is required. Please refer to the general information on the use of cable clamps and tensioners, etc.. for extra support as needed.



Before installing the cable tensioner, unscrew the eye and hook from the device until there is only 1 cm left of thread to turn (so, 1 cm protrusion into the sleeve). (Attention: right-hand AND left-hand thread!). Tension the cable slightly; then apply turnbuckle. Then tension can be achieved with a few turns of the tension screw. Insert an awl (mandrel), nail, screw, or the like, through the center of the sleeve and turn so that both threaded rods pull inwards evenly. Both rods are then screwed into the sleeve at the same distance-- with about half the thread length; this gives a harmonious appearance, and there is still enough space for any re-tensioning that may be required later.


Special Features

FassadenGrün cable systems are designed economically such that the installation of turnbuckles is usually unnecessary. But for easy kits without cross mounts (specifically: when there are many deflection points (angles) or for long cable segments without intermediate anchoring), cable tensioners are sometimes recommended. The number of tensioners used in a climbing system can be reduced by a sensible arrangement and networking of the cables. It is usually possible to combine at least two ropes with each other via deflection and to incorporate the cable tensioner in their centre, 'responsible,' as it were, for both ropes.
