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.

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.
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.
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.
We don’t provide an assembly service ourselves, as the high travel costs would make this uneconomic for our customers.
However, a fitting plan and general assembly instructions are provided with every item that we sell, which should make it possible to assemble and install the apparatus at your own premises with just a little practical skill. We recommend that assembly should always be carried out by two people.
If you would prefer to have the apparatus assembled by a professional on your behalf: Many customers have approached a local gardening specialist, who can assemble the unit for you.
It is likely that you already have, and perhaps know, a suitable business in your local area.

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.
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.
