Shipping Post-Tension Tendons

Post-Tension Shipment

AMSYSCO Inc. ships its post-tensioning tendons primarily via flat-bed trucks (as seen in the picture above).  The tendon bundles have the “eye to the sky” and are on top on dunnage.  Usually, the bundles are unloaded using a overhead crane at the jobsite.

Each bundle includes roughly a hundred coiled and color-coded tendons.  Depending on the customized requirements and dimensions of the buildings, we fabricate many different tendon types with unique lengths.

If the construction specifications require additional corrosion-protection, then the tendon bundles may also have plastic shrink-wrapping around them and the truck/carrier may require a plastic tarp on top of the PT material.
