Macalloy Stainless Steel Tension Bars used to Support Roof at Metro Station, Prague

Various Macalloy products were used in the construction of the Metro Station, including stainless steel tension bars / tie rods. Also within this project the Macalloy TechnoTensioner was used for the stressing of the tension rods for the roof structure. The tie rods were installed by Macalloys partner in the Czech Republic, Tension Systems s.r.o. Tension Systems used the Macalloy TechnoTensioner to undertake stressing of the tension rods.

Macalloy stainless steel tension bars are used in the roof structure of Strizkov Metro Station in Prague, Czech Republic. The roof structure is suspended from a steel arch using Macalloy tie bars. The unique design allowed for a lightweight structure with a high end architectural finish.

The tie rods were installed by Macalloys partner in the Czech Republic, Tension Systems s.r.o. Tension Systems used the Macalloy TechnoTensioner to undertake stressing of the tension rods.
