Structural strands

Structural strands
Our structural strands, made from super-high tensile wires, are specifically designed to support or anchor large structures safely. Use them for bridges, roofs, walls or other large suspended structures. With excellent breaking load, fatigue strength and corrosion protection, your structure is secure at the rope and cable level. We closely monitor the production process and offer personalized support.

Securing structures safely

The mechanical integrity of structural strands is the key to a durable and safe anchoring system or support structure. Bekaert’s structural strands feature very high fatigue resistance, good ductility and excellent corrosion resistance. Combined, these features maintain the strands’ integrity.

Produced to last

We offer final galvanized and redrawn Bezinal® and Bezinal®3000 coated wires for the best corrosion protection.  Our structural strands can withstand extreme weather conditions thanks to their super-high tensile wires and coating technologies.

Keeping an eye on production quality

We ensure the strands’ high quality through closely monitoring the production process and using advanced, on-line measuring devices. The quality, plus the properties of the wire, allow for a smooth stranding process.  Our global team of experts is at your disposal to provide personalized advice or support.
