The “Universal Connect plate” is ideal for installing posts when the lateral forces to which it is subjected are moderate. It enables lateral adjustment of the post on the foundation screw, and adjustment of the vertical position.
Therefore, the preferred solution is one that is made up of long foundation screws (FS 1000-F).
This system requires a bolt-on base to be provided by the customer.
Advantage 1: Wide range of lateral adjustment and easy vertical adjustment.
Advantage 2: Easy assembly and adjustment simply by bolting the foot.
This solution is carried out in 5 steps:
1. Making holes in the ground
2. Installing foundation screws
3. Positioning of vertical adjustment system
4. Positioning base of the post on the plate
5. Installing the construction
It is essential to first make a hole in the ground as this ensures that the screw will penetrate well into the soil.
Lubrication helps to position the foundation screw.
Our portable electric machines, in combination with a laser transmitter and receiver, are used to install the screws in a level position and do not require any specific actions.
The “Universal Fix 3D Connect” and attachment of the aluminium plate with the aid of the central M16 screw result in a perfectly horizontal plate which accommodates the screw-on metal foot.
The metal feet are installed on the universal plate. The plate is pre-drilled in suitable positions so that it can be bolted.
The final step of this solution consists of mounting the construction on the bolted posts.
The foundation screws bear the load of the entire construction, therefore their dimensions must be calculated taking into account the permanent loads and weather conditions.
