The Avant-fix is a floor attached, single column support, standing 103cm tall and designed to hold wooden bars of 40mm diameter. Unlike other ballet barres, the Avant-fix does not rely on having any additional securing arms that require fastening to a wall to give it stability. Its robust build and solid anchorage make it suitable for a broad range of uses from dance to fitness workouts.
The cradle of the Avant-fix is wide enough to join two wooden bars at the support. This feature offers two distinct advantages over most other floor mounted ballet bars. Firstly, it allows you to install a continuous barre within your space, without any gaps between one wooden beam to the next. Secondly, it reduces the number of supports you need to hold up your bars. We offer a range of different length wooden beams for the Avant-fix .
The Avant-fix closed cradle means it can resist users pulling and pushing on the bar from any angle. Many basic floor mounted bars have an open cradle design which can only tolerate pressure from the top down. On these types of uprights, any exercises that involve pulling, risks ripping out the wooden beam. With the closed cradle design, this is impossible. In addition, the support is secured to the ground with four solid screw anchors so that you can be certain the Avant-fix won’t work loose from its fixture.
Despite the robust floor attachments, the size of the support base is remarkably small, giving you the opportunity to secure your upright as close as you desire to the wall. Thanks to this design flexibility, your Avant-fix also works in conjunction with all of our wall brackets.
