  • to align with international practices.
  • Including sizes for rigging screws with nominal sizes up to 100 mm.
  • Including typical pin types that comply with this Standard.
  • Defining the effective length to be the distance between the bearing surfaces, for both open types and closed types.

This Standard Covers:

4 MATERIAL

5 DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE.

6 MECHANICAL PROPERTIES

7 MARKING

8 TESTING OF MECHANICAL PROPERTIES

9 MANUFACTURING PROOF TESTING AND QUALITY CONTROL

 

FOREWORD

Rigging screws and turnbuckles are used in lifting, tensioning and staying systems to make adjustments to the length of the systems. They are used with guys for masts, towers and other tall structures where relatively small forces are applied or small adjustments are required.

The same quality grading system is used by other Australian Standards covering components in lifting, tensioning and staying systems. It allows for positive identification and easy selection, and relates to the mechanical properties of the finished product and not simply to the strength of the material.
