The EISENHORN can be mounted on any wall with only six screws. Drywall and timber construction walls are also no problem (e.g. double planked Rigips or Fermacell walls).
This is made possible by the long and extremely rigid column, which is mounted on the wall. The short lever of the horn and the long, rigid aluminum profile act as a reduction (lever law). It is easier to mount an EISENHORN on a lightweight wall than a large TV, for example. This is purely due to the transmission of force through the long profile over (almost) the entire height of the wall.
PLENTY OF SAFETY MARGIN
During the standard tests, the device is loaded with over 400kg. These tests are performed on various common wall types (concrete, brick, lightweight walls, aerated concrete). Special attention should be paid to the blocker, with which the device can be completely blocked (e.g. for pull-ups). In this case, the EN standard reasonably requires appropriate safety factors. Therefore, the use of the blocker is permitted up to a body weight of 100kg. For all other exercises (without blocking), the user weight is irrelevant.
CAN YOU FIT IT YOURSELF?
Yes, that works without any problems.
The plugs included in the scope of delivery are intelligent 2-component plugs and have a base body made of high-quality nylon, which automatically activates the optimum functional principle depending on the wall type and ensures permanent and secure fastening.
For example, it expands in solid building materials, it folds in perforated building materials and it knots in panel building materials/lightweight building materials. Thanks to the two-component technology, the anchor has a higher expansion volume for a perfectly coordinated insertion and tightening torque.
Here is the principle of knotting when mounting on lightweight materials:
If you prefer not to do the installation yourself, we recommend you to hire a craftsman from your area.
TO BE CONSIDERED WITH A CONCRETE WALL
Concrete is a closed volume. Here it is important to completely remove the dust in the drill hole before inserting the dowel. It is not enough to vacuum with a vacuum cleaner. The drill hole must be blown out. If you do not have compressed air or a pump at hand, you can do this with a straw. This is important so that the dowel and screw have enough space in the hole.
SIX SCREWS IN A ROW
The six screws are distributed in a row over the entire height of the column. The dowels have a diameter of 8 and the drilling depth is 80 millimetres. Accordingly, only small holes are created, which can be closed again very easily, e.g. when moving house.
EVEN GREATER SAFETY WITH TILTING DOWELS
Are you not quite sure what material your lightweight wall is made of? Is it possible that the wall was built from inferior panel material? Then we recommend using toggle plugs with metric screws.
