System Components

The slim and elegant design of our system components guarantees a smooth transition to the tension rod.
This allows a perfect fit into any form of architectural concept such as steel, timber and glass façade constructions.

Our system components are: fork, pin with circlip, pin with washer, Tension rod with rolled threads, lock cover, coupler, turnbuckle, gusset plate and cross bracings.

Fork

Pin with circlip (standard)

Pin with washer (on request)

Tension rod with rolled threads (with/without spanner flat)

Lock cover

Coupler

Turnbuckle

Gusset Plates

Tension rods are attached by sliding a gusset plate, which,
in turn, is fastened to the structure in between the fork end
connectors. The fabrication of gusset plate connections are
subject to static and structural requirements. The design
should be in line with dimensions as shown in table 10.
The plate should be fabricated in grade S355J2+N material in
accordance with DIN EN 10025.

As part of our portfolio HMR Jacob can offer
fabricated gusset plates and unique design solutions.
Furthermore, we supply a broad range of products
within the steel construction sector.

Cross Bracings

Cross bracings are a very common form of construction.
Cross bracings provide stability to a structure and have the ability to resist horizontal forces. HMR tension rod systems can be used in a variety of ways and lend themselves to a variety of structures.

Components such as connection discs or cross couplers
provide attractive connection solutions for bracing
applications. HMR cross couplers offer a more cost-effective
and streamlined alternative by minimising the number
of fork connectors required.

When selecting a bracing system it should be taken into consideration that bracings using no connection should be avoided. The reason is to prevent bending moments on the fork end connectors and gusset plates and causing surface damage (see figure right). If tension rods can be offset from each other this will allow the bars to be crossed.
