Macalloy Architectural Tension Bars and Compression Struts Provide Bracing for High Rise Office Building in London, UK

A series of Macalloy architectural products were used for the construction of this high rise building. From Macalloy tension bars / tie rods to architectural adjustable compression struts.

Macalloy tension bars were used throughout this iconic London office complex, consisting of three high rise towers. The tie bars were used in a cross bracing application to provide structural support to the steel structure.

In addition Macalloy’s architectural adjustable compression struts were used for bracing at ground level where potential compressive forces were to be encountered.

The tension bars were stressed on site by Macalloy’s own site services team using Macalloys tie bar tensioning device, the TechnoTensioner, which allows for simple tensioning of tie rods.
