Tendon System offers Barrier Cable Systems in several coatings and corrosion protection levels depending on use and environment.
Our barrier cable is primarily produced with half inch diameter strand. Other sizes are available upon request.
There are three types of barrier cable systems:
- Epoxy Coated
- Plastic Coated
The most widely specified coating is Class A-ASTM A475 galvanization. Enhanced coatings include a zinc aluminum alloy ASTM B750 Galfan which offers 3 to 1 corrosion performance enhancement.
Epoxy Coated is used primarily for aesthetic purposes. It is more expensive than galvanized barrier cable.
Additional protection aesthetics can be provided with the addition of a 60 mil extruded sheathing of high density polyethylene which is hot melt extruded over wax coated cable. The HDPE sheathing can be manufactured in a wide variety of colors. Special ultraviolet, anti-oxidizing inhibitors are added during the process to ensure durability and weather resistance.
