To connect arch to deck, TENSA develops new systems improving the quality of construction:
vertical and inclined hangers with parallel strands have been updated to meet client's requirement as electrical insulation or the highest corrosion protection.
Moreover, TENSA technologies allow the structure to increase performances and transfer vertical and horizontal loads.
Vertical and diagonal hangers allow loads distribution from the arch to the deck.
A careful choice of hanger type and details guarantees the most adequate structural and aesthetical solution.
Deck can be optimized by use of post-tensioning while connections to columns can be improved with use of bearings and seismic devices. Joints allow proper movement of the entire structure.
