FAQ's

What is Telespar?
The Telespar system consists of square, perforated, welded steel tubing, in eight sizes and gauges. Perforations or knockouts on all four sides allow you to mount signs back-to-back and on adjacent sides.

The unique manufacturing method used to produce Telespar tubing permits tubular sections of different sizes to telescope into the next larger size making adjustment, reinforcement and splicing fast and easy. The square shape also provides superior windload capabilities and torsional stability.

Telespar tubing is complemented by a variety of compatible fittings, accessories, nuts and bolts, and simple installation tools, creating an engineered system of integrated parts.

GROUND SUPPORT OPTIONS

Single Breakaway Anchor (photos coming soon)
Using either manual or power equipment, a minimum 30" section of 12 gauge Telespar tubing is driven into the soil to serve as an anchor base. 1" to 2" is left exposed above the surface. One man working at ground level can safely and easily insert a signpost into the anchor base and bolt it in place. Installation time is kept to a minimum. Signs can be bolted onto the post before installation.

Two-Piece Breakaway Anchor (photos coming soon)
A two-piece breakaway system is easily created by adding a 12 gauge outer sleeve of the next larger size tube to the original anchor base. This additional sleeve, approximately 18" long, provides a double wall thickness to accomplish the breakaway function. When installing in soil, it is advisable to drive the anchor base and outer sleeve together, leaving 1" to 2" of the assembly exposed above the surface. The signpost is then inserted and bolted into the anchor assembly.
