Tensioning Rod Systems

Hi-Strength Lugs

All DeMuth's lug models are specially designed to match the field application and the diameter and strength of the rods being used. 

For consistently strong and reliable tensioning hoop systems, DeMuth rods, lugs and nuts should always be used together. 

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.
