Knee and Vee Braces
The following examples illustrate typical installations for Knee and Vee Brace applications. Knee Bracing is generally used with single arm construction, having one end attached to the side of the pole, and the other end to the top or bottom face of the single crossarm. The end fitting mounting plates on Knee Braces are perpendicular or approximately perpendicular to each other.
Vee Bracing, by comparison, is generally used with double arm construction, with one end attached to the side of the pole, and the other end to the side of a spacer fitting. Because of the variance in slope of the brace mounting plane on the spacer fitting body, care must be taken when selecting the end fitting angle for the spacer fitting end.
Knee and Vee Braces may be ordered by the catalog number developed from codes in the tables below, or by the brace type and series along with complete descriptive data. A catalog number indicates "each" units.

Vee Brace Application
Knee and Vee Braces may also be installed under the arm as the need dictates. Contact BROOKS Engineering Department for assistance in determining which application best meets your design criteria.
