Macalloy Tension Rods / Tie Bars were used extensively within this innovative roof structure in Terminal 3 of Alicante Airport in Spain. The products supplied by Macalloy were integral to the airport design.
Alicante airports terminal 3 building has a large span membrane roof structure, made up of 40 domes, each one supported by a lightweight steel frame roof. The steel frame is braced using small diameter Macalloy tension rods.
The steel frame is arched, with the arch been tensioned by twin Macalloy tie bars.
The Terminal 3 building was built to help the airport deal with increased tourism around the Costa Blanca.
