Customised Heavy-Duty Surface Mount

For situations where more robust fixing is required

Use the diagram below to plan your job to work out what components you will need and the quantities of each. The heavy-duty installation is for heavy loading espalier landscaping for fruit trees, and any vines or foliage producing a seasonal harvest. The Lockjaw system allows for high tensioning of the wire, over a short distance, with re-tensioning made easy for ongoing maintenance.

This system can be used for timber, concrete or brick substrates and can be used in Straight Line or Ladder format as shown below.

Installation of straight run single wire.
