Mon, 12 Nov 2012
Macalloy tie rods are used to suspend a concourse linking Dublin airports 2 terminals. The whole strucutue is suspended by Macalloy tie bars from 2 steel stations.
Macalloy’s site services team undertook on-site stressing of the tension bars, ensuring correct installation and tension was achieved.
Macalloy tension bars are also used as bracing within the steel structure of the main terminal 2 building and the suspended concourse.
The second terminal is capable of handling 15 million passengers, allowing the airport to handle 35 million passengers a year.
