Bekaert’ tension strands for cable stay bridges feature tensile strengths up to 2 200 Map and high breaking load and fatigue properties on wire level. Our master or reference strands are produced with precision tolerances up to 0.005% (equals 5 mm tolerance on 100 m of strand) and meet the NF A35-035 and ISO15630-3 standards.
Multistrand test conditions
The strands are protected by three layers of corrosion protective coatings;
Meeting Fib and PTI recommendations
Bekaert HDPE extruded stay cable strands comply with Fib and PTI recommendations for stay cable design testing. Our strands successfully pass the pull-pull fatigue test of 2000 000 cycles, leading to more durable stay cables.
Bekaert’s production facility includes high-end production machinery including brand-new extruding and stranding equipment.
Our advanced machine park allows us to increase our production capacity to meet even the largest projects. To further reduce time, money and waste, Bekaert is able to supply volumes up to 4,5 tons per coil. For your installation convenience, our master strands are supplied in pieces marked to exact length.
Bekaert has a long track record in providing wire, strand and cable solutions for a wide range engineering structures. Our super high tensile wire has a particular strong track record in deep water mooring applications as well as for cable stayed bridges such as:
