The combination of BESISTA tension rod systems and BESISTA compression strut systems from the extensive BESISTA® product range is widely popular with builders, engineers and architects alike. One example of an intelligent combination of tension rods and compression struts are the bracings and underpinnings of the „Feuer- und Rettungswache II“ in Mönchengladbach, Germany. The building serves as a modern technical and logistics centre of the Mönchengladbach Fire Brigade and accomodates up to 20 emergency forces.

Speaking of „fire“: BESISTA tension rod systems and BESISTA compression strut systems are available in entirely hot-dip galvanized finish including galvanized rod threads. This optimal corrosion protection has received multiple „Deutscher Verzinkerpreis“ awards („German Galvanizing Award“).
