FEB 2014 Tension Cable System
Tension Cable System

Some of our work is quite unique! Contracted to assist in the design / installation of a tension cable system to support suspended spherical objects.

Using chemical anchors to secure the cable ends and threaded stud ends to tension the cable, the balls were arranged to mimic the ripples emanating out from a dropped stone in a pond.

Liaising with the artistic owners and their builder we delivered an interesting and eye catching outdoor art piece!
