Macalloy Tension Rods on Network Arch Bridge, Czech Republic

Macalloy Tie Bars / Tension Bars were used for the Network Arch Bridge Design, and the Macalloy Tension Bars were stressed on site using the Macalloy TechnoTensioner.

Macalloy tie bars are used on the Trinec-Baliny Bridge in Czech Republic. The Macalloy tension bars are used as hangers to help maintain the tension in the arch and support the bridge deck. The criss-cross formation of the bars on a network arch allows for larger length to height ratios to be achieved than on standard arch bridges.

The Macalloy tension bars were stressed on site using the Macalloy Techno-Tensioner, a unique tension bar stressing device. Installtion and stressing was undertaken by Macalloys partner in the Czech Republic, Tension Structures, s.r.o.
