Macalloy Tension Bars Suspend Airport Concourse; Dublin, Ireland

A series of Macalloy Tie Rods / Tension Bars were used in the construction of this suspended concourse, built purposely to link two areas of the airport together. The products supplied by Macalloy were integral to the airport design.

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.
