Wire Rope Services
Proteq offer a guy rope tensioning service using calibrated clip on tension meters. Calibrations are undertaken on test beds and are traceable to National Standards. The maintenance of the correct design pretension loads is essential if structures are to remain adequately supported during severe wind loading and stack shell stresses are to be maintained within acceptable parameters. During re-tensioning operations, the structure verticality is adjusted to within the requirements of BS 4076:1989, thus ensuring that eccentric oscillating loads are not allowed to develop. Structure verticality’s are constantly monitored during the re-tensioning process by optical theodolites from two perpendicular survey stations.
