Tendon Systems is a nationally recognized leader in the field of advanced concrete construction methods, made possible by the development and application of post-tensioning techniques that form our core business.
“Post-tensioning is a method of reinforcing (strengthening) concrete or other materials with high-strength steel strands or bars, typically referred to as tendons. Post-tensioning applications include office and apartment buildings, parking structures, slab-on-grade, bridges, sports stadiums, and rock and soil anchors. In many cases, post-tensioning allows construction that would otherwise be impossible due to either site constraints or architectural requirements.” – PTI Institute
For decades, Tendon Systems has designed, fabricated, and installed post-tensioning systems for new and existing structures. A range of standard solutions and practices is available for many applications including parking decks, condominiums, and other concrete structures.
Post-Tensioning allows for thinner slabs, longer spans in elevated members like floors and beams, stronger foundations on expansive soils, and the near elimination of cracking.
Ease of Construction
The capabilities of Post-Tensioning are endless, and our experienced engineering teams work tirelessly to create designs that are economical, easily constructable, and have optimal construction cycles.
Post-Tensioning methods offer solutions to designs that would be difficult with traditional construction methods, and post-tensioning is commonly used for applications that require exceptional structural strength and durability.
