Details of OVM Stay Cable System is available in this link
OVM’s multi-strand cable system consists of multiple high-strength PE sheathed, galvanized, or epoxy-coated strands placed parallel to one another, compact anchorages at both ends, outer HDPE pipes, damps, monitoring system, and other accessories. The system is designed to meet and fulfill FIB, CIP, and PTI requirements.
Advantages of OVM Cable Stay Systems:
-Excellent fatigue resistance.
-Proven anchor reliability. Static load tests have satisfied a minimum of 096 GUTS, even under low-service stress conditions, the system maintains reliable anchoring.
-Enhanced system fatigue performance, as there aren’t any rigid points of contact along the cable’s full length (with the exception of wedges in the anchor plate) hence avoiding fretting fatigue.
-Water tight performance, meeting FIB, CIP, and PTI requirements.
-Excellent corrosion protection system- stable and durables fillers are placed inside anchorages to provide protection against corrosion on anchoring and tensile elements. Individual strands are protected by multiple barriers. Outer HDPE Pipes serve to protect internal tensile elements and resist UV radiation.
-Easy installation. Capable of individual strand stressing and de-stressing, as well as integral cable stressing and adjustment.
-Individual strands are inspect-able and replaceable. Cables could be replaced with minimal interference to bridge traffic and without heavy equipment.
-Cable force and condition can be easily monitored during construction process and throughout its service life.
