Heavy Duty Turnbuckle
Heavy-duty turnbuckles are used to take on slack and apply for tension support in a rigging assembly. They are available in a variety of sizes, materials, and types to support your tension requirements.
The thread diameter is the size of the end of the fitting, with thicker thread capable of supporting larger loads than small diameters. The take-up refers to the length in total the fitting can screw in and out of the body. By turning the body of the buckle, you are able to modify and adjust the tensile strength according to the job requirements. They are used for towers, tall structures and in different aspects of engineering. Similar to rigging screws, turnbuckles generally have shorter adjustments but a better ability to be adjusted under a load.
A forged, heavy duty turnbuckle would be ideal to decrease wear in the screw walls from adjustments and decrease ridge erosion and risk of loosening or slipping with increased tension.
