Massive Wire Rope Cross Mount M12, WM 12153


Product sheet

Description / Price

Wall bracket and/or 'cross mount', made of high-grade steel A4, smooth shank D 12 mm, from A4-80 particularly resistant to bending, with integrated anchoring system (patent protected). Phillips D 20 mm with set-screw, lock nuts, lock nut, press disk for the borehole end, seal from Neoprene, spacer body from plastic with spreading indicator, expanding cone and metric peg (both from galvanically galvanized steel). Wall clearance 90 mm. Simple assembly. A similar head is also available separately. >>> Price



Standard wall mount for massive kits. For wire-cable 3 and 4 mm. For a simple or crosswise cable guidance, if necessary also triple guidance.  The distance of support to support, if possible, shouldn't exceed 1.8 m at horizontal cables and 2.2 m at vertical cables. Many types of wall can be used, please check the suitability via the link. Due to the spreading pressure, not for border areas, minimum distance from the edge of the free standing walls, approx. 25 cm. Also directly into solid wood d > 8 cm can be used. Not for walls with insulation, wood paneling and pre-fab construction. Strong stem-forming plants such as Wisteria, Knotweed and Tree Shrike need to be guided parallel to the wire rope, avoid continuous looping around steel wire rope as described with Wisteria. Please also use the information on the selection of appropriate cross mounts.



If necessary, please notice the leaflet about drilling work. Borehole of 16 mm diameter and 9 cm depth, expand the front half of  the borehole if possible, to about 16.5 mm diameter. For example, by gently abrading the borehole wall during drilling. The underground should be flat to some extent or be made so. The already pre-assembled wall mount is led into the cleaned bore-hole, strike lightly at the head (cross head) (figure 06) if necessary, until the rubber seal comes in contact to the wall. If the mount can only be introduced with difficulty, the hole can be drilled  again and increased by lateral pressure or low jamming of the drill. If the drill diameter, however, gets too large, the plug is rotated a little closer before insertion. By slightly buckling of the spacer body a better 'grip' is then possible at the borehole wall, and the element does not rotate when tightening. Then use open-end wrench (spanner) on the double nut and screw (Figure 07). The key must engage the broad front nut. After a few turns - clockwise -as when inserting an ordinary screw - the inner metric plug is spread open, recognizable by squeezing the outside protruding plastic sleeve (spread indicator - Image 08) If the protruding plastic sleeve is completely crushed (Figure 09), the holder will be aligned according to the cross-slots. The further installation is processed as described for massive kits.


Special Features with Perforated Stones

Installing in perforated bricks with dense structure is usually no problem. In porous, perforated bricks such as poroton (hollow bricks), Eder, inter alia, use is possible if the blocks are 12 cm strong or stronger. At lower strength class the inner webs should be as wide as possible. With the construction of the chambers it must be sure that the rawl plug head can grip at least the second web/footbridge, this must begin at least 6 cms inside behind the plaster outside edge (not stone outside edge!). The assembly ends in high hollow bricks then with picture 08 the last strong turn of the spanner like with picture (09) isn't done. However, if it comes to a significant 'cracking' in stone during the installation, you can unscrew the cross mount back and change the entire delivery against glue anchors (WM 12191). If in doubt, always use the element WM 12191 , preferable with bonding.


Special Features of Aerated Concrete

The wall mount is conditionally usable into aerated pore concrete ("air/ gas-concrete") if no twiner like Wisteria, Knotweed, Tree Shrike etc., are planted. It is then better to choose 3 mm of cable, instead of 4 mm and the grub screws shouldn't be tightened too strongly. In case of doubt the mount can be set  at a closer distance or as an alternative, choose the heavy construction style with its deeper anchorage, to prevent a break out of the stone. In aerated concrete the wall mount is hammered in and then tightened. It makes sense to drill a short, maximum 1.5 cm deep pilot hole to avoid puncturing the outer 16 mm from the plaster layer delamination during impact. Then drill a pilot hole 6 - 8 mm in diameter, more preferably a mandrel (pick) punched hole to compress the surrounding material. 10 or more revolutions then can be necessary until the plug has condensed the surrounding stone material sufficiently and "is effective".


Special Features - General

This cross holder can be unscrewed from the anchoring again.


"Made in Germany" (Saxony), shaft from North Rhine-Westphalia, plug system of Baden-Wurttemberg, hexagon nuts from the Far East.
