• Simple connection to the structure 
• Quick installation

An architectural anchor

A fork is a simple, efficient and elegant way to anchor a structural rod to a structure. A metal plate with a hole is sufficient, making the need for sophisticated connections unnecessary.
For all the rod diameters and grades mentioned below, we offer a range of aesthetic and functional forks that provide all the required qualities in terms of strength and durability.

Advantages

Hanger rods offer numerous advantages:
• Simplicity: during installation (prefabricated hangers can be delivered directly to site) and maintenance,
• Durability: steel hangers are galvanized or plated; the SS460 range is made from high quality stainless steel,
• Aesthetics: the same design regardless of the forces involved,
• Angular correction: fork design allows for 0.5°, which is usually enough to compensate for potential structural
inaccuracies,
• Adjustment: adjustment range is equal to the diameter of the rod, making visual inspection quick and simple,
• Tension: tension and direct tension of rods can be controlled,
• Strength: range components modelled using finite element studies,
• Endurance: the system has successfully withstood two million fatigue test cycles at an amplitude of 110 MPa and 55% of rod UTS.

Three hanger ranges

Three hanger ranges are available depending on project requirements:
• SS460 is based on the use of stainless steel rods with a yield strength of 460 MPa.
• S520 is based on the use of carbon steel rods with a yield strength of 520 MPa.
• Special hangers is based on the use of carbon steel + HSA rods with a yield strength of 870 MPa, largely surpassing other rods available on the market while ensuring optimum fatigue resistance. This rod optimises the design of the structure by reducing the number of hangers or the diameter of the rods.
