CABLE SYSTEMS FOR FACADES & CABLE NETS
Now regualrly used in modern building construction, steel cable systems have a new role, both functionally and aesthetically. Teufelberger-Redaelli cable systems adorn numerous facades and cable nets around the world. We provide specialized design, engineering, supply and installation services of cable systems for facades, offering wide range of products made of galvanic coated carbon steels and stainless steel material.
The cable system, prefabricated in the factory using the highest quality cable, sockets, socketing and finishing, will fulfil the design and installation needs of your project. Our range of high-performance steel cables can be either supplied using Full Locked Coil (FLC) ropes or Open Spiral Strands (OSS). Both solutions are available with poured spelter cone type sockets (resin or zinc filled) or with pressed swaged sockets depending on the cable diameter and the project requirements and specifications.
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) can be applied to structural cables for improving corrosion protection, increasing visibility and for architectural, aesthetic reasons. This option has an impact on the sockets choice which are specifically designed and manufactured to accommodate the additional HDPE layer within the socket neck. Teufelberger-Redaelli’s HDPE sheathed cables are designed and produced to extend and prolong the cable systems lifespan, offering a good resistance to oils, water, chemicals and abrasions.
Generally stainless-steel cables are selected in applications where the cable system is highly visible or as an architectural feature for example transparent facades, glass curtain wall facades, exhibitions and convention centre halls, pavilions, footbridges and cable net roofs. Stainless steel cables are available as Full Locked Coil (type FLX) or Open Spiral Strand (type OSX).
