Cable stay

Structural Systems can provide strand stay cables, wire stay cables or carbon stay cables for a wide variety of structures, drawing on both local and global expertise and resources of the BBR Network. For suspension bridges, BBR Technology can also be used for the main suspension cables as well as for the hangers.


For temporary applications, stay cables may be plain strand / wire unsheathed cables. For permanent stay cable applications, galvanised, waxed and individually sheathed strands enclosed in an external sheath are adopted, or wires enclosed in a sheath and the voids filled with a flexible corrosion protection compound.
