Tensioning Rod Systems

Hi-Strength Lugs

The specially designed Stand-Off Brackets can be mounted at any position along the box beam uprights for increased flexibility of installation. Brackets are fastened with a special locking device and a 3/8" plated bolt - NO DRILLING IS REQUIRED. The Stand-Off Bracket assembly assures the correct distance of 7" from wall surfaces to the center line of the rungs.

Tensioning Rods & Lugs

Tensioning Rods & Lugs

  • DeMuth produces tensioning rods up to 20' in length and in diameters from 1/2" to 1".

  • Threads are cold-forged with a pointed end for easy hoop assembly and an exclusive graduated "lead-in" thread between the fully threaded and the plain portion of the rod - this eliminates the notch effect and the danger of reduced strength at this critical point where there is severe bending behind the lug during tensioning.

  • Rods, including the threaded portion, are electro-zinc galvanized and finished with gold chromate for extra corrosion resistance.

  • DeMuth tensioning rods are specially bundled for ease of handling.
