Educational Website Covering Tie Rod AssembliesOur newest website, www.tierodassemblies.com is an educational website covering the configurations and components of tie rod assemblies. Tie rods are steel rods that join and reinforce parts of a structure. This website also contains frequently asked questions about tie rods, discusses various applications, and contains a Tie Rod Calculator that will determine rod lengths based on pin to pin dimensions.
Created by our resident tie rod expert Steven Wallenstein, and designed by our web guru Sarah Kemp, this microsite is geared towards contractors, fabricators, engineers, architects, and fastener distributors who are seeking technical information about tie rod assemblies.
Portland Bolt manufactures black, galvanized, and stainless steel tie rods in imperial diameters from 1/2″ – 5″. Do you have questions about tie rod assemblies, require a quote, or need to procure tie rods for your next project? If so, contact Steven.
