INTRODUCTION:
Like the hip-end version, the gabled end NAVI-TRAC frame is made up of extruded aluminum members joined
by weldments. The aluminum frame members themselves are extruded with channels into which the NAVITRAC fabric “kedar” is fed. However, the gabled end version of the Navi-Trac differs from the Hip End version
in a number of ways:
1. All the beams are parallel to each other.
2. Beam base plates are hinged for pivoting to a vertical position. End Upright plates are fixed, non-pivoting.
3. The eave fittings are the MCW style that allows a simple drop-in action for purlin installation, rather
than the slip joint of the hip end configuration.
4. Fabric middle bays are installed into the channels of adjacent beams one bay at a time.
5. Gabled End fabric is intalled simply into the outer channel of the end beams and tensioned to the
Gabled End uprights.
6. X-Cabling extends into the overhead rafter area to compensate for the lack of hip end support.
7. Corner guys are in one direction only, parallel to the beams.
It is possible to combine the hip end and gabled end styles within one building unit (see kit #3); however
this assembly manual focuses on the gabled end configuration only. The last few pages describe the
hip/gabled combination and refer the customer to the hip end assembly manual for the hip end part of
the building unit.

NAVI-TRAC INSTALLATION SAFETY GUIDELINES
Your installation techniques will evolve to fit the needs of your clients, the experience level of your crews, the
nature of other tentage on-site, and the equipment that you have most readily available. We encourage you to
begin with a crew of (4) workers and only reduce this number as your experience level allows you to do so
safely. Whatever techniques you adapt for your crews, we encourage you to keep safety utmost in mind.
Please read through this assembly manual completely before beginning your installation. Be sure the proper
equipment, crew and safety precautions are in place. We hope that you enjoy the design features of the NAVITRAC each time the unit is installed.
1.
It is recommended that workers wear safety shoes and hard-hats on site.
2.
When moving beam sections by hand, use proper lifting techniques to protect the back, and
avoid pinching fingers while making hardware connections.
3.
Never permit bystanders or uninvolved to stand or walk even briefly in the falling path of a beam as it is
being raised or lowered.
4.
Be aware to avoid contact of beams with any overhead power lines near the site.
5.
When anchoring the structure, avoid all underground power lines and gas lines or other utility
easements. Local authorities should be able to map the location of these obstacles.
6.
Keep site clear of debris to avoid tripping, especially while carrying components or bundles of fabric.
7.
Do not drag bundles of fabric on concrete, asphalt, or ground as this can cause damage to the
fabric from abrasion through the bag.
8.
9.
When lifting the NAVI-TRAC Hip End frame (See Appendix), be sure to use the heavy duty NAVI-TRAC
frame lift. The standard Anchor frame lift was not designed for the weight of the NAVI-TRAC frame.
When lifting each side of an end section, (2) NAVI-TRAC frame lifts should be used.
Before pivoting beams to vertical, clear the area of items that could cause tripping or slipping.
10.
Before pivoting middle beam, install the cross-cable for safety bracing. On the 50’ NAVI-TRAC, the
cross-cable should be left in place as an essential part of the structure.
11.
NOTE: Hinged baseplates are used on all beams in the Gabled End Configuration. However, if the Hip
End is constructed on either, or both ends of the unit, the base plates in the hip end module should all be
the non-pivoting, fixed plates. Use of hinged baseplates in the end module could cause the end module
to collapse during installation.
12.
When using ladders to make peak connections, be sure the ladder is tall enough that workers can
reach the peak from a ladder step consistent with the safety recommendations for the ladder being
used. On middle beams, secure the eaves before climbing the ladder to secure the peak.
13.
For any Gabled End NAVI-TRAC of 100 ft or more in length, one middle bay must be cross-cabled both
in the over head and at ground level in an “X” fashion on both sides for each 100 ft of length.
14.
For proper loading and anchoring information, consult the appropriate NAVI-TRAC blueprint available
from Anchor Industries Inc.
15.
If a Hip End is used on either end of the unit, before installing fabric, verify that all hip, brace, and rafter
pins are seated into weldment fittings and secured by lanyard pins.
16.
The installation method described herein requires coordination of tasks between workers. A
safe installation is dependent on alertness and coordination.
17.
Before lifting Gabled End top frame to install uprights, always guy out and stake at least both corners
of the side or end being lifted. This will help maintain the intended footprint and will protect against uplift
from the wind that could move or flip the tent, causing damage to the tent and/or severe injury to
workers.

DIRECTIONS FOR SQUARING THE TENT
1. USE A TAPE MEASURE TO MARK THE ENDS OF A LINE FOR ONE END (A TO B ABOVE) EQUAL TO THE EXACT WIDTH OF THE UNIT.
2. HOLD THE “0” END OF ONE TAPE AT POINT “A” AND THE “0” END OF ANOTHER TAPE AT POINT “B”.
3. EXTEND THE FIRST TAPE ALONG ONE SIDE OF THE UNIT TO A MEASUREMENT EQUAL TO THE EXACT LENGTH OF THE TENT.
4. CONSULT THE CHART BELOW TO FIND THE DIAGONAL FOR THE TENT YOU ARE BUILDING.
5. EXTEND THE SECOND TAPE TO A MEASUREMENT EXACTLY EQUAL TO THIS DIAGONAL.
6. BRING THE TWO TAPES TOGETHER SO THAT THE LENGTH MEASUREMENT OF ONE LIES DIRECTLY ON THE DIAGONAL MEASUREMENT OF THE
OTHER. PULL THE TAPES TIGHT AND MARK THEIR INTERSECTION. THIS WILL LOCATE A FAR CORNER (POINT “D” ABOVE).
7. SWITCH TAPES SO THAT TAPE 1 (ABOVE) MEASURES THE DIAGONAL AND TAPE 2 (ABOVE) MEASURES THE LENGTH. THIS WILL LOCATE POINT
“C” ABOVE.
8. WITH THE FOUR PRIMARY CORNERS LOCATED, LAY OUT BASEPLATES AND UPRIGHTS ACCORDING TO THE NUMBER OF BEAMS TO BE INCLUDED
IN THE BUILDING UNIT. MEASUREMENTS GIVEN ARE TO THE CENTER OF THE STAKE HOLE OF EACH PLATE.

Anchor products are of superior design and operate best within the parameters of these
instructions. It is IMPERATIVE that the instructions be carefully read and COMPLETELY
FOLLOWED. Please read installation instructions before the installation or removal of this
product. Installation instructions are available at www.anchorinc.com.
CAUTION
1. For each installation, the installer is solely responsible for evaluating the site and the proper securing method determined. Some soils require different staking or securing than that
provided with the tent. Due to this variety of soil conditions, these are the manufacturer’s
suggested sequence of installation procedures. Anchor’s responsibility is limited to the construction of the tent. We are not responsible for methods that installers may choose to
secure the tent to the ground.
2. Inasmuch as the weather is unpredictable, good judgment and common sense must be
incorporated within installation guidelines. It is the responsibility of the tent Installer/maintainer to determine the severity of the weather, proper time and method of installation and/or
erection and disassembly.
The structure has been manufactured to meet code requirements. For the safety of all occupants, evacuation is recommended if inclement weather occurs, or if there is any doubt concerning the safe use of this product.
3. Proper safety equipment should be used at all times to insure a safe installation and take
down. We suggest a careful evaluation be made to determine safety equipment needed,
such as hard hats, steel-toe shoes, safety glasses and other as required.
4. Anchor stands behind its products in accordance with its standard Terms and Conditions
of sale. A copy of our Terms and Conditions of Sale can be obtained by contacting Anchor at
