Additional Information

Balanced pre-tensioning system of 50-C86Z00  and 50-C86Z10 frames
The four columns of the frames consist of two elements, one contained within the other. The internal part is the column and works in tension, whilst the external part is a tube and works in compression. This configuration guarantees tensional uniformity at all load levels.
