High-quality compromise between strength and lightness

Our competence in calculation of strength makes it possible to make weak points strong where it is really necessary.

Usage of our own software for calculation of gates backed up with our comprehen-sive experience enables us determine bearing capacity of strain elements of plain and radial gates more competently.

Hundreds of positive feedback notices from our customers reflecting the results of performance of equipment we designed is an irresistible proof of reliability. This is the reason why we are a leading designing company. It is within our power to implement the most complicated technical tasks.
