Cable Installation and Equipment
DYWIDAG provides full service also for installation and stressing.
- Stay Cables
- Extradosed Cables
Besides design-support and supply of stay cable we can also supervise or perform the installation by certified and trained professionals. Our experienced and flexible teams will allow you to meet all execution cycles and guarantee a high-quality installation. We also supply calibrated installation and stressing equipment. DYWIDAG has developed various methods to optimize and simplify cable installation procedures depending on site specific space and time constraints. If required, the complete cable can also be preassembled on the ground first.
The outer sheathing is welded to its required length directly on site using heated tool welding and is then lifted into an inclined position. Strands are uncoiled either from wooden reels or are provided reelless. They are installed and stressed one by one using lightweight equipment. Strand installation is performed using small winches or pushing devices. Hardware configuration can be adjusted to site conditions to ensure a fast, customized solution that minimizes costs and cycle times
Afterwards, strands are installed into the sheathing, and the complete cable is lifted into its final position. Subsequently, all strands are stressed.
Supervision or full installation service guarantees high quality and long durability of the system
