Spiral rope bridge projects

Road bridge Schorgast
Flag Germany
FATZER is proud to have contributed to this road bridge in Bavaria, which was nominated for the German Engineering Award. A total of 1,300 m of high-quality 110 mm fully locked rope systems together with special dampers and neoprene sleeves were manufactured and installed. The assembled spiral ropes were manufactured and tested in accordance with the German Delivery Specification for Bridge Ropes (TL/TP VVS). Among other things, a rope test piece was subjected to an oscillation width of 150 N/mm² in 2 million load cycles. In the final breaking load test, the full minimum breaking load of the rope was achieved.
