Leipzig’s Augustusplatz is the east German city’s biggest square and main hub. It ranks among the most beautiful squares in Germany.

The BESISTA® 2-540 tension bar system was specified to brace the steelwork assembly that roofs over the new promenade. All components of the tension bar systems are hot-dip galvanized: the rod anchors / fork heads with cover sleeves, the pins with locking rings and the tension bars, whose zinc coat also covers the rod threads. The unique corrosion protection offered by BESISTA® is the key to the extra-high durability of the bar systems, which is particularly crucial for outdoor applications.
