FATBAR® system is designed for prestressing applications to perform under heavy dynamic loads. FATBAR® can be applied in wind turbine foundations and demanding engineering applications that sustain fatigue loads. The FATBAR®s are post-tensioned against high dynamic stress and thus protect the foundations or concrete structures from cracking even in harsh conditions.
FATBAR® is a unique high-strength steel bar for prestressing applications. Its design enables it to sustain greater fatigue loads, which increases the life span of foundations or concrete structures. FATBAR® can be used as bonded, unbonded, or external bar tendon.
FATBAR® post-tensioned anchors are preassembled with conical washers and spherical nuts designed following the principles of DIN 6319 and DIN 6330 B and are property class 10. Bolt threads are cold-rolled with special threading for fatigue loading. FATBAR®s are produced according to EN 898-1 property class 10.9.
FATBAR® post-tensioned anchors are available in any length up to 11,900 mm according to the customer’s specification.
Note: Anchor plate dimensions according to design.
FATBAR® Post-Tensioned Anchors are available in lengths up to 11,900 mm. Diameters available between 36 mm and 98 mm.
Comprehensive product information like resistances, required supplementary reinforcement, concrete grades, limitations of use etc. can be found within the Technical Manual. Product details may be country-specific. For design, always use product information that is localized for design's destination country. Country specific Technical Manuals can be found under Documents page, or from website of the country in question.
