Advanta Parking Structure
The vehicle barrier cable system on this five-story parking structure was fully repaired as well all the exposed grease monostrand tendons protruding on the top deck. Very few cables had been back seated which had allowed the wedges to “walk” out over time and loosen the cables. You can tell if a cable has been back seated by the “bite” marks left on the cable. Poor concrete and inadaquate water proofing had also taken it’s toll on this structure.
We use a specially calibrated tension meter to verify and record the actual tension on every cable. Different cable lengths must be calculated and stressed with different forces to achieve the desired force.
