How do I choose the right pole diameter?
We recommend the standard pole diameter of 45 mm. This is also used in most studios and competitions. The 40 mm pole diameter is more suitable for people with small hands.
Will the X-Pole damage the floor or ceiling?
The top and bottom plates are surrounded by a silicone ring. If this ring is free of dirt/dust, your ceiling and floor will also stay clean. In addition, the silicone ring reliably prevents the formation of pressure points or scratches when the poles are assembled and disassembled correctly. Nevertheless, it is advisable to remove the poles between training sessions on sensitive surfaces (textured wallpaper, cork, etc.). This also protects your ceiling/floor from pressure points.
What kind of ceiling/floor is necessary to set up an X-Pole safely?
In the case of solid floors and ceilings, the construction of the X-Pole is completely unproblematic. With soft floors (e.g. carpet) it is only advisable to clamp your poles a little tighter.
If you have a lightweight ceiling (e.g. Rigips), make sure to place the X-Pole under a load-bearing beam that is at least as wide as the ceiling plate. The best way to find the ceiling beams is to tap the ceiling. More on this is explained in the X-Pole assembly video.
Mounting on sloping ceilings or free-hanging beams is also possible, check out our selection of alternative ceiling mounts.
Up to what ceiling height or with how many extensions can I set up an X-Pole?
The basic rule is: the fewer pole elements, the better! So it is better to choose one 1000 mm than two 500 mm extensions. The maximum construction height should not exceed 3.38 m.
If your ceiling height is more than 3.40 m, we can alternatively recommend our selection of studio poles. You are also welcome to contact our customer service, we will try to find a suitable solution for you.
