Teach You How to Choose a Good Shade Sail?

Teach You How to Choose a Good Shade Sail? For most installations, you will use a eye screw on each corner of the shade sail. Which size screwdriver you will use depends mainly on the size of the shade sail. You will also need a mounting point (eg eye bolt). There is no one hardware package that fits all installed specifications. Check the hardware page of our website to determine the software required for installation. Why is the perimeter of the shade sail curved? That's when we deliberately cut an arc around the shade sail to pull the fabric tightly in the center of the sail when the sail is tensioned. Without these curved shadow sails will not be properly tensioned, nor will they be tensioned.Are the UVR and shading factors of all colors the same? will not. Generally, darker shades of color block more sunlight and ultraviolet light and provide more shadows. Most shade sails will block 90-95% of UV-A and UV-B rays. Is your shade sail hardware AISI316?AISI316 is the American designation for stainless steel 316, not an industry standard. As long as the element standard of stainless steel 316 is met, all are qualified 316. The specific 316 material standards are as follows: 316 composition is 06Cr17Ni12Mo2 06 represents C content, degree Cr content is 17%, Ni content is 12%, Mo content is 2% Generally, the higher the Ni content, the higher the price of stainless steel. American ASTM 316 is the same as the national standard 06Cr17Ni12Mo2. 316 stainless steel, due to the addition of Mo, so its corrosion resistance, atmospheric corrosion resistance and high temperature strength are particularly good, can be used under harsh conditions. What is the difference between UVR and Shade Factor? The shadow coefficient refers to the amount of shadow to be cast, and the UVR is a measure of how much harmful radiation is reduced.

How to Use Rigging Hardware Wire Rope Clip?

How use wire rope clamp in right way? Precautions for use of the wire rope clips: it cannot be used for a long time, it should be inspected and scrapped regularly, and it cannot be used repeatedly.(1) The size of the wire rope clamp should be suitable for the thickness of the wire rope. The inner clearance of the U-shaped ring should be 1 to 3 mm larger than the diameter of the wire rope. If the clear distance is too large, the rope cannot be clamped easily. (2) When in use, tighten the U-bolt until the wire rope is flattened by about 1/3. As the steel wire rope deforms after being stressed, the rope must be tightened a second time after the steel wire rope is stressed to ensure the joint is secure. If it is necessary to check whether the rope card is slipping after the wire rope is stressed, an additional safety rope card can be used for this. The safety rope card is installed about 500mm from the last rope card. After releasing the rope head for a safety bend, it is clamped with the main rope. If the clip slips, the safety bend will be straightened, which is easy to find and reinforce in time. . (3) The arrangement interval between rope cards is generally about 6 to 7 times the diameter of the wire rope. The rope cards should be arranged in order. The U-shaped ring should be clamped on the side of the rope head, and the pressure plate should be placed on the side of the main rope.(4) Correctly arrange the quantity and method:The number of rope clips is generally not less than 3-5. The spacing between rope clips should be ≥ 6 times the wire rope warp. The distance between the last clip and the rope head should be ≥140mm.There are 3 ≤18mm,18-26mm set of 4,26-36mm set of 5,36-44mm with 644-60mm set of seven. (5) Wire rope rope clamp should be used together. When the rope diameter is below 19mm, the rope clamp should not be less than 3, and 19-32mm should not be less than 4. The arrangement interval between rope clamp is generally about 6 to 8 times the diameter of the wire rope. To arrange the rope clamp in order, the U-shaped ring should be clamped on the side of the rope head, and the pressure plate should be placed on the side of the main rope.After the wire rope clip is loaded once or twice, it should be checked for looseness. In general, the nuts need to be tightened further.(6) Pay attention to the following two points when using:a) The size of the clamp should be suitable for the thickness of the wire rope. The inner clearance of the U-ring should be 1-3mm larger than the diameter of the wire rope. If the clear distance is too large, the rope should not be clamped, which is prone to accidents. b) Be sure to tighten the bolts when tightening the chucks until the rope is flattened by 1 / 3-1 / 4 diameter. After the rope is stressed, tighten the chuck bolts again to ensure the joint is firm and reliable. c) The chucks should be arranged in a straight line. The U-shaped part should be in contact with the rope head and not the main rope, as shown in Figure a. If the U-shaped part is in contact with the main rope, after the main rope is squashed, the force is easy to break. d) In order to easily check whether the joint is reliable and find out whether the wire rope is sliding, you can press another chuck about 500mm behind the last clip and release the rope head with a "safety bend". As shown in Figure b. In this way, when the wire rope of the joint slips. The "safety bend" was first straightened, and measures should be taken immediately.

How To Install Wire Rope Clamp with cable?

How To Install Wire Rope Clamp with cable? The purpose of the wire rope clamp:First, stainless steel casting wire rope clips are commonly used for static bolting, rope cable fastening, such as power, communication lines, strapping and fastening.Forged steel wire rope clamps are often used for lifting and lifting load, such as various engineering lifting machinery, metallurgical mining equipment, oil field derrick, port railway loading and unloading, forestry machinery, electrical equipment, aviation and marine, land transportation, engineering rescue, salvage shipwreck , factory and mining enterprises lifting, hoisting, traction rigging.Stainless steel wire rope clips are used in marine fittings, chemical plants, radiation, etc. due to their corrosion resistance and rust resistance.Second, the characteristics: with the strength of the wire rope, the use of safety, the appearance of the beautiful transition smooth, lifting work safety load, can withstand the impact load, long service life. Wire rope clamp method and standard of use:1. When using the stainless steel clamp, it must be used in conjunction with the diameter of the wire rope.2. In order to protect the wire rope from wear, the top eye must in principle use a wire rope collar.3. At the end of each wire rope, three or more chucks should be used at the same time to obtain effective locking force. The spacing of each rope clamp should be 6-7 times the diameter of the wire rope.4. The wire rope clamp should be fastened to the working section of the wire rope. The U-shaped bolts are fastened on the tail section of the wire rope and should not be alternately arranged on the wire rope, as shown in the following figure: 5. It is necessary to consider the reasonable force of each rope clamp to fasten the rope clamp. The rope clamp farthest from the collar shall not be separately fastened first. The rope clamp (the first rope clamp) closest to the collar should be as close as possible to the collar, but the rope clamp must be properly tightened and the outer wire of the rope must not be damaged.6. The strength of the wire rope clamp is determined by the correct arrangement of the rope clamp on the wire rope and the caution and proficiency of the rope clamp fixing and clamping. Insufficient tightening of the nuts or wire rope clamps may cause the rope ends to slip when initially loaded. If the rope clamps are properly arranged and tightened according to the recommended number, and all the rope clamps will clamp the longer part of the rope, and the U-bolts are to the shorter or tail section of the rope, then the strength of the fixing is at least 80% of the strength of the wire rope itself. In the actual use, the clamp rope should be inspected after being loaded one or two times. In most cases, the nut needs to be further tightened.7. Stainless steel wire rope clamps are prone to lock-up due to stainless steel fasteners. When tightening nuts, the nuts should follow the anti-locking method of stainless steel fasteners. If necessary, use diesel or anti-locking oil for pretreatment.
