Featured Frequently Asked Questions
1.How can I ensure that all components are horizontally or vertically aligned with each other?

A complete and correct installation can be demonstrated by a 100% vertical and horizontal alignment between the posts while precisely maintaining the necessary gaps.
That is the only way to be able to place the workout bars in the desired height, both quickly and without any problems.
So that you can aim to achieve a perfect result, we provide a tool to ensure that everything is properly aligned. This tool is an M12 size threaded rod, including nuts and washers. You attach the threaded bolt on each of the two uprights to achieve a perfect, millimeter-precise end result before setting the bars in concrete. Once the foundations of hardened, the threaded bolt should be removed.

Faq topics
Products
1 .How are the workout bars secured to prevent them from coming apart?

Bars are held in place using two M12 screws which are screwed into the tubing from both ends.
A CNC-milled rotating component is welded into the tube to hold the M12 screws in place.

     

The contact surface between the rotator and the upright has been machined to create knurling, leading to increased frictional resistance between the two contact surfaces. This principle works very effectively and creates an effective, stable link between the workout bars.

Quick adjustment without tools: As a special option, we offer a quick adjustment solution, which consists of two M12 star-stud screws with a strong, plastic handle
This allows you to loosen the workout bar without using any tools for a quick height adjustment.

2 .Which height adjustments does the workout bar support?

Stainless steel training apparatus with a maximum height of 240cm: The bars can be adjusted to 24 heights at 9cm intervals, supporting heights between 15 cm and 240 cm.

Stainless steel training apparatus with a special 300 cm height: The bars can be adjusted to 30 heights at 9 cm intervals, supporting heights between 15 cm and 300 cm

Please note the dimensions provided on the relevant product pages in each case.

In addition to normal fitness and strength training, sling trainers, mounted, incline benches and gymnastics rings, etc., can all be used on the bar.

3 .How strong are the workout bars and the other workout elements, and how much weight can they bear?

Every training item (workout bars, dip bars, human flag bars, rung ladders) supports a weight of up to 150 kg.

4 .Are the workout bars also available in different widths?

The standard width of 140 cm is sufficient for normal training activities. If, however, you still require wider bars, please contact us so that we can find a solution together.

6 .Can the bar also be used to attach a swing?

Yes. You can also hang a swing for smaller children off the bar, and many customers do so. The easiest way is simply to wrap the swing cables around the bar. The following customer photo explains the principle, using larch wood workout bars as an example turnstangen.de:




For larger and heavier children, it nevertheless makes sense to obtain proper A-shaped swing apparatus.
Otherwise, due to strong lateral forces, there is a risk that the foundations could become loose and the apparatus could begin to wobble.

7 .Won’t the stainless steel get very hot in summer due to sunlight?

Fortunately, this fear is not justified in practice. Instead, the stainless steel reflects the majority of the heat, so that the horizontal bars and uprights merely remain warm to the touch.

8 .Can the workout bars also be assembled as a mirror image?

Yes; all our products can be assembled as a mirror image of the diagram. If, however, you’re not quite sure or if you have even more specific ideas, please speak to us first. Our inquiry form is available here, and we will respond with a detailed answer.

Payment and delivery
1 .Is delivery possible to Switzerland or Lichtenstein?

Yes, we regularly ship to Switzerland and Lichtenstein. The fees that we incur to create the customs documents, and the cost of import duties, are included in the shipping costs and are paid by us.

We also pay the import VAT for Switzerland, which means that you won’t receive any additional invoices from the local customs authorities.

2 .Which carrier/parcel delivery service do you use to deliver the goods?

Due to the large dimensions and heavy weight of the parcels, we use a cargo shipper to deliver V2A stainless steel products. The cargo shipper will contact you by phone to discuss the exact delivery arrangements (date and time) in advance.

Larch wood products are delivered by the GLS parcel service.

On the day of dispatch, you’ll receive an e-mail with the exact shipment details, including a link to allow you to track the shipment status.

Delivery only takes place on workdays, and as such, there are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays, or public holidays.

Fitting and assembly
1 .How are the workout bars assembled?

Each shipment contains assembly instructions and a diagram of the foundations.
To install the bars, you need a spade, a spirit level, a mixing tank to stir the ready-mixed concrete and tools to tighten the screws.
Larger units should be assembled by at least two people.

If you prefer to arrange for a professional to assemble the unit, many customers have used a local gardener or specialist gardening service who can handle the assembly for you.

Please take a look at https://www.galabau.de/FachbetriebSuche.aspx, where you can obtain a list of suitable, local businesses by entering your postal code.

2 .How can I ensure that all components are horizontally or vertically aligned with each other?

Once the foundations of hardened, the threaded bolt should be removed.

3 .Aren’t sleeves recessed in the ground enough to hold the unit in place? Why do the uprights absolutely have to be held in place with concrete?

It is absolutely essential to hold the uprights in position in the ground using concrete foundations to achieve a lasting, stable and secure installation. We firmly advise against all other methods, as they do not achieve the necessary lasting stability.
Our attempts to use recessed sleeves have not been worthwhile. If the sleeves were too wide, the uprights were too loose and not firmly anchored. If the dimensions of the sleeves were too tight, dirt and earth quickly got between the contact surfaces and meant that it was no longer possible to pull the posts out of the ground — at least not without excessive effort.

4 .How should I care for the stainless-steel material?

In general, the entire unit requires very little cleaning and maintenance.
To clean the stainless steel, you can use an ordinary commercial stainless-steel cleaner designed for household use (e.g., for extractor hoods).
Warning: Do not use steel wool or similar items on the unit under any circumstances, as the iron components in the steel will quickly lead the formation of surface rust.

5 .Is an assembly service available to install the apparatus?

We don’t provide an assembly service ourselves, as the high travel costs would make this uneconomic for our customers.

6 .Can the training apparatus be disassembled and taken along following a house move?

Yes, that is entirely possible with a little effort. For this purpose, we recommend that you should embed the uprights in a plastic pipe, which can be removed from the concrete foundations at a later stage.

You should follow the steps as described below:

1. Obtain HT and/or KG 150mm diameter plastic drainage piping from the DIY store. You should obtain a length of 60 cm per upright, or cut the tubing to the appropriate length.

2. Now dig the foundations to a depth of 30 × 30 × 60 cm in accordance with the fitting instructions (or drill with an auger if preferred), insert the posts in the plastic piping and into the foundation hole.

3. Now stir the mix for the concrete foundations (available ready-mixed in bags from the DIY store) and pour this between the upright and the tubing, and between the tubing and the earth. Then us a plank of wood or similar to stamp the ground to prevent holes or cavities from forming in the concrete.

The benefit of this approach: This makes it possible to dig up the foundations of the uprights and remove the outer concrete foundations from the HT tubing by hitting them with a large hammer and chisel. The uprights, including the inner foundations and the HT tubing, can then be reseated in concrete foundations at the new property.

7 .Kann das Gerät auch an einer Stelle mit Gefälle / am Berg aufgestellt werden?

Ja, das ist durchaus möglich. Hierbei müssen dann die zum Berg zeigenden Pfosten etwas tiefer einbetoniert werden als die unteren "talseitig" liegenden Pfosten.
Hierdurch kann sich natürlich die nutzbare Höhe der Stangen etwas reduzieren, was im Vorfeld bei der Planung berücksichtigt werden sollte.

Wichtig ist generell, dass die Anlage insgesamt weiterhin senkrecht und die Turnstangen weiterhin waagerecht stehen.
