Astra Turm, Hamburg, Germany
An Ancon Tension System has been used to support a concrete ring weighing over 500 tonnes, which in turn is suspended above an 80 metre high office block.
Ancon Germany offered significant design assistance and supplied a 42mm Ancon Tension Bar System.
The project is now complete and the tower has become one of Hamburg's landmark buildings, with the suspended ring as its distinctive feature.
Tie bars are increasingly being used in structures and buildings as an architectural as well as a structural element.
As a future-oriented, innovative company Leviat focuses on the ever-changing requirements of the industry, and our latest development combines the portfolio of Ancon and Halfen Tension Systems to ensure we meet the individual requirements of our customers.
