Stay Cable Systems

Modern cable-staying and suspension techniques make use of cables and anchors that are derived directly from prestressing.
Consisting of sheathed strands inserted in high-density polyethylene sheaths, our stay cables are characterized by:

The Freyssinet HD stay cable is based on each strand being completely independent.
This principle has many advantages, including:

The standard range of HD stay cables varies from 1 to 169 strands. However, there is no limit to the capacity or the length of stay cables.

The tension element of the Freyssinet HD stay cable consists of a group of parallel individually protected T15.7 strands named "Freyssinet monostrand" which has outstanding durability both mechanically and against ageing, and provides excellent protection against corrosion.

The Freyssinet HD stay cable can be adapted to provide better anti-corrosion performance in aggressive environments, by replacing the Freyssinet Monostrand with the Cohestrand® system. This particular invention has opened up the way to new applications in cable-staying, notably with the use of deviation saddles and the installation of turnkey load-bearing cable, collar, anchor and hanger systems for suspended structures.
