Maximum Options for Creating Balance: the New DIRAK Leveling Foot

01 Requirements

An uneven floor can become a challenge, for example when attempting to set up machines or
furniture precisely. The use of only one version of Leveling Feet offers limited adjustment possibilities to compensate for unevenness. In order to achieve exact results, different
versions are required. This multiplies the amount of storage space required.

Our solution: with the new DIRAK Leveling Foot, we offer you a product that is not only functional
but also features a flexible design. The modular design makes it possible to determine the H-
dimension yourself by using a standard hexagon screw DIN 933 / ISO 4017. This advanced innovation
promotes not only improved storage capacity, but also the wide range of variants – with just one
product.

02 Product advantages

An effective result

The meticulously engineered design of the DIRAK Leveling Foot makes it possible to use a standard M8 hex bolt DIN 933 / ISO 4017 – where the length can be determined by the application itself. This option offers the special advantage of covering all necessary variants with just one product, thus optimizing inventory by reducing the number of leveling feet that need to be stocked.

A groundbreaking new way to create balance.

Quick and easy to assemble
  1. The hex bolt (1), the nut (2) and the sleeve (3) form the ball joint (4) and can be put together easily and tool-less “clicking” into the base-plate (5). An inclination angle of +/- 25° ensures optimum contact with the floor.
  2. The installation height can be precisely adjusted, with minimal effort using a standard 13mm wrench. The limits on the installed height are based on the hex bolt paired with the Leveling Foot.
Down-to-earth
  1. Our design uses a larger than normal ball that increases the area of contact between the components of the Leveling Foot, and thus the force that can be absorbed by the product.
  2. The force is directed downward, not to the sides, thanks to a unique design of the base plate—preventing the plate from breaking due to horizonal load.
  3. The base plate of the DIRAK Leveling Foot can be designed smaller relative to the load. This space-saving method makes it possible to mount the Leveling Foot closer to the edge of products, which is especially advantageous for housings that stand next to each other.
  4. The PA plate provides a firm, stable base. Customers can choose between two sizes to better fit their applications.
  5. To prevent the Leveling Foot from slipping, the anti-slip insert (6) is included in the scope of delivery. It also absorbs vibrations and protects the floor against abrasion.

Comments:

The “Static Load Capacity in kN” values given in the table below  are based on simple compressive loads, perpendicular to the Leveling Foot. The additional bending and buckling stresses that frequently occur in practice can lead to reduced load-bearing capacity of the bolt and must be considered in any final design.
