CR-WDFTGS-SS - Rake Fixed/Tensioner Pair
To ensure performance of our system, a stabilizing member such as a 3/4" tube or S4S wood (1-3/4" or 2" square recommended) is required between all newel posts at the top pre-drilled position. Each rake cable run requires a CR-WDFTGS-SS (Rake Fixed/Tensioner Pair). Calculate the rake cable fitting pairs needed based on the cable system Rake Up Newel(s) selected. CR-410-36 newels require 9 pairs when installing a stabilizing member at the top position (10 pairs without stabilizing member); CR-410-39 newels require 10 pairs when installing a stabilizing member at the top position (11 pairs without stabilizing member); CR-410-42 newels require 11 pairs when installing a stabilizing member at the top position (12 pairs without stabilizing member). Be sure to include enough cable pairs for each flight. Do not include Rake Pass Through Newels (CR-420-XX) when calculating cable fitting sets required since the cable will simply "pass through" this newel.
For any cable run of 25' to 50', or if cable runs through Pass Through Newels to make a change in direction or elevation, tensioner cable fittings should be used on both ends of the cable to achieve the desired tensioning on both directions of cable. Item CR-WD2TSN-SS contains 2 Rake Tensioners.
