Macalloy Tie Rods / Tension Bars were used extensively within the Kolomoen footbridge, providing Stay support.
Macalloy tension bars are used on The Kolomoen footbridge in Norway. Macalloy tension bars are used as back stays and bridge hanger stays from the steel pylons.
The tie rods are used as a cost effective alternative to cables traditionally used on stayed bridges.
Stressing of the tension bars was completed using the Macalloy TechnoTensioner, unique tension bar stressing device.
