BOLTED FIXING METHOD B
C.C.A.® MEMORIAL GROUND SUPPORT
The support requires no adhesive/cement. It locates within the holes DRY. This makes removal and re-fixing of the memorial and foundation very simple. The support can be removed and re-used as required.
BASE = Single 28mm dia. hole.
Centrally positioned side to side, underneath the memorial plate. In effect, a third dowel.
FOUNDATION= Single 28mm dia. hole.
Centrally positioned side to side, corresponding to the base anchor hole, when correctly aligned, from front to rear.
These instructions serve as a suggestion only. Every mason will utilize their own methods. the ground support is designed to be ADJUSTABLE, ADAPTABLE and when bolted fixing, to avoid the complete lift of the memorial.
Once the foundation is in place, drive the support rod through the preset hole in the foundation, leaving only 1″ (25mm) exposed beyond the washer.
Position the memorial over the support on 2 x 3″ high skids, to allow hand clearance underneath.
Lift the support by inserting a pinch bar under the washer and raising it.
Spin the washer back down and repeat.
Using this procedure you can locate the base support hole, align the memorial over it, and continue raising the support as before until the rod meets the memorial plate.
Spin the washer up so that it meets the bottom of the memorial base, this ensures the correct positioning of the anchor components relative to the base thickness.
Cement the base to the foundation and remove skids to fix.
