Fitting Instructions - 6T

 

.

 

WARNING!
Ensure you have the correct Armour Load Anchor for the required rating - the 6T Armour Load Anchor has a base which measures approximately 128 mm x 103 mm (5.1" x 4.1"). It is the owner?s responsibility to ensure that the correct number, location and capacity of load anchor is used to meet the country's legislative requirements.

 

For a load anchor to be safe when loaded to its maximum load rating the load platform or supporting structure to which the load anchor is attached must be designed and constructed to withstand the forces applied by the load anchor or anchor(s) and load(s). The Armour Load Anchor must be installed in accordance with these instructions and the advice of a suitably qualified professional must be followed with regard to the design of the supporting structure.

 

The Armour Load Anchor or the supporting structure must be clearly marked or identified with the load rating for which the load anchor is designed and installed. This rating may be less but never more than the rating supplied by the manufacturer of the load anchor.

 

The Armour Load Anchor is designed to restrain a chain or other suitable load bindings. The direction from which a load may be applied is shown below:

The Armour Load Anchor consists of an "eye" for attaching the load binding, a sealing plate (Armour Push plate) and a housing. The Armour Push Plate has no structural function and is loose fitting so that it expels dirt when it is moved either by hand or movement of the vehicle. The eye may be raised by pressing down on the Armour Push Plate through the hinge end of the hole in the eye. For this reason and because the eye swings down at the hinge end it is important that the underside of the housing is left open and clear of obstructions.

 

The Armour Load Anchor is manufactured from a weldable quenched and tempered cast steel. It is designed for welding to a steel supporting structure made from any grade of weldable structural steel. All welding must be undertaken by a person who is trained and competent at welding using the process and materials chosen and the type of weld in the applicable position. Prior to welding, pre-heat the load anchor housing and adjacent supporting structure. Welding materials must be suitable for welding to the materials from which both the Armour Load Anchor and the supporting structure are made. The supporting structure must be designed by a suitably qualified professional to withstand all the forces imposed on it by the load or loads being supported and all the load anchorage devices installed.

 

Generally the Armour Load Anchor must be attached by at least the two sides or the two ends or alternatively by the hinge end and one side with "assistance" at the unsupported corner. See overleaf for general details of 3 alternative mounting arrangements.

WARNING!
Ensure you have the correct Armour Load Anchor for the required rating - the Utility Armour Load Anchor has a base which measures approximately 105mm x 108 mm (4.2" x 4.3"). It is the owner's responsibility to ensure that the correct number, location and capacity of load anchor is used to meet the country's legislative requirements.

The Armour Load Anchor consists of an "eye" for attaching the load binding, a sealing plate (Armour Push plate) , the main housing, and a backing plate. The Armour Push Plate has no structural function and is loose fitting so that it expels dirt when it is moved either by hand or movement of the vehicle. The eye may be raised by pressing down on the Armour Push Plate through the hinge end of the hole in the eye. For this reason and because the eye swings down at the hinge end it is important that the underside of the housing is left open and clear of obstructions.

 

The Armour Load Anchor is manufactured from a weldable quenched and tempered cast steel, with a galvanized finish. The housing and backing plate each have six (6) corresponding pre-drilled holes. The Load Anchor is designed to be fitted by cutting a hole in the deck (surface of the object being fitted to) using the inside of the backing plate as a template, drilling through the deck so that the housing can be screwed to the backing plate using the screws supplied. Note it is critically important that the deck (surface) to which the Armour Load Anchor being fitted is designed by a suitably qualified professional to withstand all the forces imposed on it by the load or loads being supported and all the load anchorage devices installed.

 

The Load Anchor can also be welded to a steel deck (surface) or other supporting structure made from any grade of weldable structural steel. All welding must be undertaken by a person who is trained and competent at welding using the process and materials chosen and the type of weld in the applicable position. Prior to welding, clean the galvanizing off the housing and pre-heat the housing and adjacent supporting structure/deck. Welding materials must be suitable for welding to the materials from which both the Armour Load Anchor and the supporting structure are made. The supporting structure/deck must be designed by a suitably qualified professional to withstand all the forces imposed on it by the load or loads being supported and all the load anchorage devices installed. Generally the Armour Load Anchor must be attached by all sides
