Typically it is specified by the designer to
reduce the side thrust caused by dead and

UBIX® TEMPORARY ROOFING - TENSION BAR
The UBIX Tension Bar is a structural addition to the standard roof which
links from side-to-side with a series of pre-fabricated high tensile steel
tubes, joined with standard UBIX beam spigots. The UBIX Tension Bar
eliminates the need to make ad-hoc solutions using standard tube-andfittings and eliminates excessive
erection work, saving on labour cost.
