Dimensions in mm
Note for dimensioning: proof of buckling strength – also in transition distance LÜ – shall be provided by the structural engineer. The “BESISTA® safety rod systems“ installation instructions shall be observed. The dimensions for the compression rod connections shall be individually determined by BESISTA International GmbH and the connections specially manufactured.
BESISTA® rod anchors are able to transmit both tensile and compressive forces under the European Technical Approval ETA-08/0038, see MENU “Design loads” page 4. For compression loads, the pin diameters are larger than those of standard pins for tensile loads. See MENU “Technical data” page 5 or ETA Annex 7. In order to minimize the buckling length in the transition distance LÜ, the adjustment distances are shortened, deviating from the standard length of the tension rods.
BESISTA® compression rod systems are available in three types: the lower-cost type 1 as machined solid rods made of S540N up to Ø 76. Type 2 as one-part machined components made of S355 for timber or for welding by others to steel tubes made of S355. Type 3 two-part, consisting of a machined component made of S355 for timber or for welding by others and higher strength thread pins made of S540N. The connection geometry for both types is the same.
