Ferrules and reinforcing rods represent one of the oldest tying systems in the world. However, the loading capacity of the ferrule has always been a matter for conjecture as it’s carrying capacity depends entirely on how tight the pinch bolt of the ferrule is.
Even with adequate force applied the tendency is still for the ferrule pinch bolt to slip on the tie rod.
For this reason, BuildEquip cannot give loading figures for their ferrules and strongly advise that the use of ferrules is limited to such applications as tying in shallow beam sides etc.
Available in one size only and manufactured from high quality cast iron.
Overall length of Ferrule: 40mm
Maximum diameter of tie rod: 10mm
The Ferrule Jack is used to tension the tie rod prior to clamping the ferrule pinch bolt. The tie passes through the jack and tensioning is achieved by ratchet action.
