Macalloy Tension Bars in Lightweight, Large Span Roof in Czech Republic Airport



Mosnov hanger in Mosnov, Czech Republic; this Hanger uses Macalloy tie rods in 2 significant ways within the roof structure, the roof has a main span of 145 metres and is made up of 7 bowstring services. The lattice trusses were then connected together using the standard Macalloy CHS tubes and 460 tie rods, also known as tie bars as bracing elements. The products supplied by Macalloy were integral to the airport design.

This hangar is situated at Mošnov Airport near Ostrava town. It consists of the main hangar building for aircraft maintenance and repairs alongside a service building. The steel structure of the roof was purposely designed to allow pre-assembly on the ground, furnished by cladding and equipment and heavy lifted to the final position on top of columns (+21 m). This method of construction was used for the first time in the Czech Republic for the first time.
