Recommendations for use

MAXTENSOR® products can be used for a wide range of wires for agricultural and livestock use.

It is recommended to consult the technical department of Maxtensor Internacional S.L. on which would be the most suitable product depending on the application and the type of wire used.

Do not use the product outside the recommended diameter range.

Do not exceed the load limit of any product.

The indicated load limit is a static load value, and depends on the type of wire and diameter used.

If you think the product will be subjected to high loads, use wire diameters close to the maximum value of the range indicated on the product.

The dynamic loads produced by the wind, impacts, vibrations, can significantly increase the service loads on the wire.

It should be taken into account that dirt, chemicals and insects, among others, inside the product can jeopardize the proper functioning of the product.

Leave a minimum length of 10 cm from the free end of the wire to the outlet hole of the product.

Secure the free ends of excess wire.

Regularly check the status of the installation.
