The question of bracing should be clear cut. Before a crack appears in a weak fork, reduce the weight in the crown and install a non-invasive bracing system that is quick and easy to use.
Our bracing strops hold up a minimum of 10 tons, Nerex bracing rope will support 8 tons, and even with the introduction of a rubber cylinder into the rope less than a 1/3 of tensile strength is lost.
The elasticity that is introduced into the rope brings moving branches to a more gentle halt and with a bracing system now placed high up in the crown the risk of the top breaking out above the anchor point is virtually eliminated.
Instructions for the use of our non-invasive component system can be downloaded here.
We also supply BOA bracing kits and a complete range of accessories for bracing applications.
