Architecture tensile cable checking procedures


Installation on tensile cable systems

Structural tension cable installation requires a special breed of installers who posses understandings of working with tension and a keen eye for inspection. These procedures may not be skipped in any installation project.

                -              Never use the threads of tensile terminal as means of loading

                                high tension. Always use a separate hydraulic tension

                                system for the loading.

                -              Check all threads are engaged fully and properly with

                                minimum of 6 thread revolutions or distance equal to 1.5

                                times the dia of thread.

                -              Check all lock nuts are properly tighten and engaged.

                -              Check all screws or any captive pins are properly secured.

                -              In case of overloading or deformation, always release tension                                   immediately at a gradual pace.

                -              Any deformed parts must be replaced immediately.

                -              Never shock load the tensile cable systems.

                -              Perform “pin checking and securing” as detailed in page 46.

Checkups of tensile cable systems

Structural tensile cable systems are assumed to have a significant amount of self weight under tension, resulting in its receptivity to vibration and fatigue. Fatigues are effected by a multitude of factors including wind loads, self loads, thermo expansions, adjacent building works, earthquake, or traffic and they can become an important issue on tensile rod systems.  Vibrations are amplified depending on the frequency, amplitude and damping as a result of the tension systems mass and or applied loads. While assessment of vibration and fatigue are not straight forward due to it's many sources, proper design of the entire tension system, installation and checkup are crucial to it's long term safety.

                -              Perform an initial checkup two weeks after initial installation.

                -              Perform a second checkup 6 months after initial installation.

                -              Perform regular follow up checkup in accordance to                                                                          standards used in the region.

                -              Perform “pin checking and securing” as detailed in page 46.


Stainless steel cable maintenance procedures

Proper maintenance procedures

1. Clean all surface from contamination in a 2 weeks interval. (This process may not be skipped, as dust can be accumulated on the surface and destroy the oxydicing  protective layer of stainless steel)

2. Proper maintenance may not be skipped to retain stainless  steel's corrosion resistance property property. Record  documentations and pictures of all process carried out and  submit monthly report to qa@strudyna.com.

3.  Use ordinary household liquid soap diluted with water and apply with soft cloth or synthetic sponge.

4.  Never apply chlorine based cleaner or any abrasive liquids.

5.  Rinse well, dry with soft cloth.

6.  Regular cleaning will remove most form of heavy soiling or accumulated staining.
