MACALLOY Bracing Systems provide a full range of high quality rod
and cable systems for a wide variety of architectural, structural
and civil applications. Developed in the UK during the early 1980’s
MACALLOY’s range of products are now recognised worldwide as a
leading brand within their field.
MACALLOY Tension Rods are available in thread diameters ranging
from 10mm to 100mm, and are available as unfinished carbon steel
(normally for later painting), hot dip galvanized, or stainless
steel. The range is also complimented by a full selection of rod
coupling systems, center anchor discs, and compression rods.
Pre-tension jacking systems are also available. They are used for a
wide range of architectural and structural applications.
MACALLOY Cable Systems are an alternative to tension rods. They are
available in stainless steel cable diameters from 4mm to 26mm, and
in three different strand configurations to suit a range of
MACALLOY 1030 AND S1030 Post Tensioning System comprises a range of
high tensile carbon steel and stainless steel threaded bars
available in diameters from 25mm to 75mm. Originally developed for
prestressed concrete structures the system is also used for a
variety of other structural applications.

Tension Rods are available in mill finish carbon steel, hot-dip
galvanized, and stainless steel.
Cable Systems are available in stainless steel.
The Post Tensioning System is available in carbon steel and
Turnbuckles are a simple method to allow rod lengths to be extended
while providing additional length adjustment.
The Cross-Coupler allows simple diagonal bracing by permitting rods
to intersect in the same plane.
The Turnbuckle with Fin Plate allows long horizontal rods to be
supported against sag by using additional vertical bracing.
The Disc Connection provides an attractive architectural feature
for the central connection of multiple tension rods used in cross
The TechnoTensioner allows the accurate preload of MACALLOY tendons
where a turnbuckle is used. It works by gripping the tension bar on
either side of the turnbuckle and pulling the bars together into
tension and so loosening the turnbuckle. The turnbuckle can then be
tightened with a strap, chain or stilson wrench.
Tension rods and cables systems are excellent for supporting
tension loads, but not compression loads. Compression Rods
accommodate the structural situations where compression loads need
to be supported. They consist of large diameter steel tubes with
MACALLOY fork ends and are available in architectural and standard
