Pro-Strain strut Kit 3000 x 48 x 3.2mm c/w strut peg, adjuster & fixings

Stock Code: CXST300001

Pro-Strain

Tornado’s Pro-Strain fencing system has been designed following extensive feedback from some of the UK’s top contractors. The brief was for a galvanised steel straining post and strut system that could be adapted to suit a wide variety of ground conditions and topography whilst overcoming some of the limitations of existing systems.

Pro-Strut Kit

  • 1 x Strut
  • 1 x Strut Peg
  • 1 x Adjuster
  • 2 x Couplers (1 x small & 1 x Large)
  • 1 x Breast Plate
  • 2 x Bolts and Nuts
  • 1 x Post Cap

We would recommend 2.4m kit for livestock, rail/cattle and 3.0m kit for deer fencing.

Note: If a two-way or corner strainer is required simply order two strut kits per straining post. If the straining post is being used as a slight turning post, then a strut may not be required.

Struts

Manufactured from high strength 48mm x 3.2mm OD tube.

Strut Pegs

Manufactured from 89mm x 3mm tube and 1m in length they are pre-drilled with 13.5mm holes to enable a breast plate to be fitted and a 12mm hole for the strut coupler. The strut peg can be knocked in to ground level or a small distance above ground.

Couplers and adjuster

The larger coupler is inserted into the bottom of the strut and is located into the pre-drilled 12mm hole in the strut peg. The adjuster is then fitted into the strainer end (top) of the strut, followed by the small coupler. Simply extend the adjuster until the strut is securely located in pre-drilled hole on the straining posts. The system can easily be pre-loaded using the screw adjuster, and will then resist adjustment after the fence net tension is applied to the system.

Breast plates

Designed to improve resistance to movement in the ground. Manufactured from 250 x 250 x 4mm galvanised plate and drilled to take M12 x 110mm high tensile fixings the plate should be bolted to the front of the ‘strut peg’.

Larger plates 350 x 250 x 4mm are available as an option when working in soft ground.

Note: Although the bolts are designed to shear if they hit an immovable object underground. If working in chalk it is advisable not to fit the heel plate, however the breast plate should still be fitted to help prevent the post from twisting.
