Tension bar systems

Supporting structures in tension

Dextra’s Tension Bar System is usually purchased complete with fork end clevises suitable for connection to the host structure. Typical applications include hangers and supports, cross bracing and truss stiffening elements.

A number of different strength grades and surface finishes are available to fit all project technical and aesthetic requirements.
