Architectural Rod Assemblies

Feeney rod assemblies are an attractive, high-strength, low-maintenance alternative to traditional steel rod and wire rope rigging systems, and they have the added benefit of being able to support loads in both tension and compression conditions. All assemblies are made to order, ready to install and can be used in a variety of structural and decorative applications from glass curtain wall and door canopy supports, to guardrail balusters and trellis infill grids.

Easy to Adjust

Architectural Rod Assemblies are easy to adjust and tension without the need for bulky turnbuckles. Simply spin the rod to adjust length. Flats are machined onto each rod so that wrenches can grip without scratching the finish.

Measuring Length


Assemblies are measured from center pin to center pin with the Tension Forks set in the mid-adjustment position.  The chart indicates the available plus/minus adjustment range for each rod size. Assemblies are designed so that no threads will ever be exposed if adjustment is kept within the noted ranges.
