DYWIDAG Threadbar™ systems can be adjusted with ease for use as versatile tie rods.
DYWIDAG Threadbar™ systems can transfer tensile forces and be used as tie rods. The systems can be adjusted on-site, independent of installation conditions or existing deviations or alterations.
The continuous thread on the DYWIDAG Threadbar™ means bars can be cut, anchored, and coupled at any point—and adjusted to requirements on-site.
Tie rods are used in
The assembly of sheet pile harbor walls
The tie back of walls in deadman anchored structures
The positional stability of joint connections, corner joints, and foundations
How tie rods work
The continuous thread on the DYWIDAG Threadbar™—which allows bars to be cut, anchored, coupled at any point, and adjusted on-site—makes the system completely independent of installation conditions or existing deviations or alterations.
Depending on requirements and steel grades, a variety of methods can be used to protect tie rods from corrosion:
Loss of cross-sectionial area—sacrificial corrosion
Coal tar expoxy coating
Specialized Tape Wrapping
Double Corrosion Protection (DCP) for the highest protection
Different steel grades
Various corrosion protection systems are applicable
Comprehensive range of accessories for anchoring and coupling
The system can be easily, quickly and safely adjusted to on-site conditions
No limitation of installation tolerances
Prestressing for deformation minimization
Weldable bars and accessories
