Gripple Plus Tensioners
The Gripple Plus range of products offers a fast and very convenient method of tensioning and/or joining/repairing wire on trellising systems. They are adjustable and can be re-tensioned year after year.
The use of Gripple Plus for tensioning eliminates kinking and tight bends, ensuring that the wire operates at full strength for its expected life, and takes the hard work out of tensioning. The tail end of wire is simply inserted through the Gripple Tensioner and pulled through as required, then wrapped around the end post and secured back through the Gripple Tensioner.
The diameter of wire determines the size of Gripple required, as shown in the specifications below:
Gripple Small wire tensioners (pack of 20)
** For use with wire diameter: 1.40 - 2.20 mm.
** Maximum load: 300 kg
Gripple Medium wire tensioners (pack of 20)
** For use with wire diameter: 2.00 - 3.25 mm.
** Maximum load: 400 kg
Gripple Large wire tensioners (pack of 10)
** For use with wire diameter: 3.25 - 4.20 mm.
** Maximum load: 600 kg
Gripple Plus can also be used to repair wire, eliminating the need to replace whole runs of wire. Insert a Gripple at the 2 broken tail ends of wire, cut a generous length of wire to ‘bridge the gap’ and push each tail end into each Gripple Tensioner then tension. Can be fitted retrospectively.
