TruDesign Load Bearing Collars

TruDesign Load Bearing Collars are designed for use with TruDesign Skin Fittings and Ball Valves. With the Collar in place, the Skin Fitting-Ball Valve-Hose Tail assembly will withstand a 500 lb (227 kg) static force applied to the Hose Tail end of the assembly, for a minimum of 30 seconds – complying with North American ABYC H-27 standards.

Note: TruDesign 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″, 2″ Skin Fittings meet the requirements of H-27 500Lb standard (i.e. without a Large Collar installed). Adding a Large Collar to assemblies of this size increases the overall strength and protects the vulnerable exposed thread section on the Skin Fitting.

Load Bearing Collars Features:

  • American ABYC H-27 – 500Lb static load test – TRUDESIGN Skin Fittings and Ball Valves meet the American ABYC H-27 – 500Lb static load test; Seacocks, Thru-Hull Fittings, and Drain Plugs – independently verified by IMANNA Laboratory Inc.
  • For sizes 1¼” through to 3” the ABYC Collar is not a requirement to meet this static load test.
  • TruDesign ABYC Load Bearing Collar is required for the size ¾ and 1” to meet this static load test.
  • The ½” does not meet the 500Lb static load test with or without the ABYC collar.
  • Compact footprint.
  • No additional bolts or fasteners through or onto the hull.
  • Ability to retrofit to existing TruDesign assemblies.
  • Compatible with all hull types across a wide range of hull thicknesses – download the product info sheet below.
  • Shrouded protection.
  • Fool-proof assembly – if not snug when tightened the Skin Fitting’s length will need shortening. See info sheet.
  • Manufactured from a glass-reinforced nylon composite.
  • Immune to corrosion and electrolysis.
