Tie rod systems by Anker Schroeder have proved their worth in a wide variety of buildings worldwide for almost 100 years. Using this experience our highly qualified personnel are able to offer a complete package for technically and aesthetically perfect solutions for various applications.

Whether you need filigree wind bracings, slim tension members for pylons, or wide-span tie rods for bowstring trusses ... the tried and tested ASDO tie rod system offers you the optimum in:

  • Quality
  • Aesthetics
  • Load carrying behavior
  • Functionality
  • Economics
  • Structural integrity

The Construction Products Regulation of 2011 (CPR) came into force July 2013 making it mandatory for tension bars supplied within the European Union to be supplied to an ETA and CE marked indicating they meet the requirements of European harmonised design codes and are ‘fit for purpose’.

ASDO structural tie bars have met this requirement since 2004 and are manufactured under ISO 9001 and EN1090 independently audited quality systems. This allowed Anker Schroeder to successfully supply many projects around the world.
