Stainless Steel Tension Fork Architectural Rod Assemblies
Feeney rod assemblies are an attractive, high-strength, low-maintenance alternative to traditional steel rod and wire rope rigging systems, and they have the added benefit of being able to support loads in both tension and compression conditions. All assemblies are made to order, ready to install and can be used in a variety of structural and decorative applications from glass curtain wall and door canopy supports, to guardrail balusters and trellis infill grids.
Tension Fork Rod Assemblies come with a left-hand Tension Fork on one end a right-hand Tension Fork on the other, affording easy adjustment and tensioning without the need for bulky turnbuckles. Simply spin the rod to adjust length. Flats are machined onto each rod so that wrenches can grip without scratching the finish. Assemblies are manufactured to your exact lengths with the Tension Forks set in the mid-adjustment position allowing maximum open and close adjustment without any exposed threads. See chart below for +/- adjustment for each rod size.
Tension Fork Rod Assemblies are manufactured from standard capacity type 316 stainless steel with a satin finish and are available in 5/16", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4" & 1" diameters. Each assembly includes a rod, left and right-hand Tension Fork end fittings with Conical Nuts and Double Headed Clevis Pins and Rod Connectors (if needed). Rod Connectors are used for all assemblies over 12-feet long. Assemblies are shipped assembled with Tef-Gel anti-seize on the threads.Measuring Assembly Lengths
Assemblies are measured from center pin to center pin with the Tension Forks set in the mid-adjustment position. The chart indicates the available plus/minus adjustment range for each rod size. Assemblies are designed so that no threads will ever be exposed if adjustment is kept within the noted ranges.
