Extremely high loads have to be safely and durably transmitted from the cable net construction to the foundations. The BESISTA® 2-540 heavy-duty tension bar systems offer the ideal solution for this type of application.
The assembly features both tension bars with cover sleeves and castings for the timber compression struts. The conical castings made from spheroidal graphite cast iron were designed and supplied by Anton-Peter Betschart. The underlying principles are set out in his book “New Cast Structures in Architecture“.
