Is Your House Made From Chocolate?

This may be an unusual title and probably grabbed your attention. For us this question is actually asked before taking an order from a customer.

Houses come in all shapes, sizes, and building materials and we cannot assume that just because you live in a house it is made on bricks which are able to support a heavy satellite broadband dish and bracket.
Of course the question “is your house made from chocolate?” is an exaggeration and not to be taken seriously unless your house is actually made from chocolate…and in that case where have you been all my life! But it has to be noted that houses are made differently, and with different structures comes different challenges.

Nevertheless solutions for these problems can all be overcome. If your house is a wooden structure for example, it may not be strong enough to support the dish and mount. The solution to this problem would be to use a king post as the mount. This is a stand-alone post which can be situated anywhere that has line of sight. The dish is then mounted onto the king post and cables are laid to the satellite modem from there. In any case the satellite broadband provider should provider you will all the information you need regarding installation.

Thank you for reading, as with most posts please share and comment.
