Turnbuckles and Tie Rod Assemblies

turnbuckle

The Turnbuckle or Turnbuckle Body is a critical part of the Tie Rod Assembly. The turnbuckle is most commonly used to adjust the length or tension of the Tie Rod Assembly. The Tie Rod Assembly may consist of ropes, cables, tie rods, and other tensioning systems. Tie Rod Assemblies are commonly used in seismic retrofitting  and structural applications as aesthetic and architectural applications.

A Tie Rod Assembly normally consists of two threaded rods or eye bolts, one screwed into each end of the turnbuckle body. One rod or bolt with a right-hand thread, the other with a left-hand thread. The tension can be adjusted by rotating the turnbuckle body, which causes both rods or bolts to be drawn in or pushed out simultaneously, thus adjusting the length and or tension of the assembly.

Turnbuckle bodies and Tie Rod Assemblies are available in sizes from ¼ inch diameter to 4 ½ inch diameter. Larger sizes may be available by request.
