Nord-Lock bolt securing system minimizes axle play and ensures the axles remain locked for safety and security.
The Top End T-5 7000 Series Tennis Chair is made of a lighter weight aluminum and is about two pounds lighter than the previously used aluminum, making the T-5 7000 Series more comparable to titanium frames. This tennis chair also features the Nord-Lock bolt securing system for the axle receivers.
The T-5 7000 Series Tennis Chair features a number of design changes for a sleeker and more secure chair. The head tube utilizes precision components that maximize stiffness, reduce play and improve overall responsiveness of the casters. Also, the frame members sleek and curved design add a sharp look to the camber tubes and anti-tip.
Benefits of 7000 Aluminum
Not only is this type of aluminum lighter than others, but it is also significantly stronger. The additional strength allows for a reduction in the wall thickness of the tubes which reduces weight of the chair. In addition, the rigidity and strength of the 7000 aluminum is further enhanced by Invacare Top End's sophisticated heat treating and powder coating process.
Nord-Lock Bolt Securing System
Axle receivers are locked into the frame with the Nord-Lock bolt securing system. This system minimizes axle play which makes the rear wheels more secure and solid, an important feature in a tennis chair. Nord-Lock bolts have been around since 1982 and they are highly effective in resisting loosening by vibrations and load.
Stronger material allows us to reduce wall thickness of the aluminum tubes, reducing the overall weight. Best of all, the rigidity and strength of a 7000 aluminum frame is further enhanced by Top End’s sophisticated heat treating and powder coating process.
