Macalloy Architectural Tension Bars in Network Arch Bridge; Propad, Czech Republic

Macalloy Architectural Tension Bars were used on this Network Arch Bridge Design in Czech Republic. The Macalloy TechnoTensioner was also used to stress the galvanised bars.

This network arch road bridge uses Macalloy galvanized tension bars to suspend the bridge deck and help maintain the tension in the main arch. As the main hangers cross each other at least twice this is classified as a network arch bridge. The use of crossed members in a network arch allows for the standard deck arch bridge height to length ratios to be extended significantly, reducing on materials and cost.

Macalloys partner in the Czech Republic, Tension Systems s.r.o. undertook the stressing of the galvanised tension bars on site using Macalloys tie bar stressing device, the Macalloy TechnoTensioner.
