How to Use a Round Brace Arm?

Hello everyone, we are Fenceshop and today we want to talk about a fundamental element for those who want to build a fence: the round brace arm. Let's see together what it is, its characteristics, and how to use it best.

Technical Characteristics

Round brace arms are available in three different diameters: 34 mm, 38 mm, and 48 mm, depending on the height of the fence. The brace arm is made from a tube with a thickness of 1.5 mm and features a double surface treatment: hot-dip galvanizing and plastic coating, generally in green color (RAL 6005). One feature that distinguishes it from the post is the plastic cap with a particular shape and a collar at the end.

Uses of the Round Brace Arm

Round brace arms are mainly used in residential contexts but can also be employed in other situations, such as for photovoltaic installations. Those who choose a round brace arm often do so for aesthetic consistency, pairing it with a round post. The installation can be done in two ways:

  • Cementation at the base: The brace arm can be cemented inside a concrete base. It has a hole that serves both the company during processing and us to fix it to the concrete.
  • Installation on a wall: In this case, it is necessary to chisel the wall slightly to create a small housing where the brace arm can grip and tension the mesh. A hole 3-4 cm deep is sufficient.
Installation and Useful Tips

An important aspect to consider during installation is the collar of the brace arm. This collar embraces the vertical post of the fence and is fixed with a galvanized bolt of 8x30 mm. When tensioning the mesh, the collar might slip inside the post. To avoid this problem, there is a small hole in the back of the collar where you can insert a self-tapping screw, which acts as a nail and prevents slippage.

Additional Information

When purchasing a round brace arm, make sure of the collar diameter. We at Fenceshop provide the collar included with the brace arm, but it is important to communicate the diameter of the post to get the correct collar. Posts can have different diameters, such as 48 mm, 38 mm, 34 mm, or 60 mm, so the collar must be compatible.

The cap with a collar is removable, and replacements are available in case of breakage or loss. Another aspect to consider is the price: round brace arms cost twice as much as classic Adelle brace arms due to the cap with collar and double surface treatment (hot-dip galvanizing and plastic coating), which ensures greater durability compared to a simply plastic-coated green Adelle brace arm.
