Macalloy Tie Rods Tension Glulam Bridge: Lough Key Forest in Co. Roscommon, Ireland

Macalloy Tie Rods / Tension Bars were used to support this timber treetop walkway in Lough Key Forest, Ireland.

Macalloy stainless steel tie rods are used to tension and provide structural support for this timber tree top walkway at Lough Key Forest in Co. Roscommon.

The tree top walkway is 250 metres long and uses timber and steel very effectively for an architectural finish matching its surroundings. The stainless steel tension bars tension the timber sections  across a number of v shaped trusses and between timber columns.
