BESISTA® tension and compression rod systems are designer systems with very high safety margins. A basic distinction can be drawn between rod systems with and without cover sleeves.
All system elements are normally supplied with a hot-dip galvanized finish including hot-dip galvanized rod threads. This zinc coat offers particularly high, long-term corrosion protection. Alternatively, the systems are also available with an uncoated or black finish.

BESISTA® Tension rod system with cover sleeve
BESISTA® Tension rod system without cover sleeve
Our tension rods with left- and right-hand threads are made of S540N
, an extra-high-quality modified S460N with a guaranteed yield strength of 540 N/mm2
. Greater tensile strengths should not be applied for the time being, see MENU “Basic knowledge” – About hot-dip galvanized rod threads
Individual rod lengths of up to 15 m are available from M 14 rod. Extension and tensioning sleeves are used for longer rods.
Hot-dip galvanized rod threads are a special feature of BESISTA® products. The fresh threads are conspicuous by their silvery sheen. BESISTA® products require no sealing or encapsulation of the threads. If “hot-dip galvanized” is specified, the client is also entitled to insist on hot-dip galvanized rod threads.
