Structural
Engineering

Structures supported by synthetic cables are well used in modern architecture due to their attractive design possibilities and structural advantages compared to steel and concrete. Synthetic cable structures are light and elegant. Whether bridges, roof structures or towers, each construction demands high dimensional accuracy, design, and production standards. Our knowledge of cable constructions, characteristics, behaviour, end fittings, dimensions, and tolerance benefits engineers and designers during cable-supported structures' planning and designing process.

Cable-stayed bridges or suspension bridges are exceptionally economical for medium- to long-spanned bridges from 100 to 3500 metres. For smaller bridges, such as footbridges, a solution in the form of our FibreMax lightweight precision cables might be the best choice in terms of weight reduction or aesthetical reasons.

Also, telecommunication towers or antennas can be stabilised using our FibreMax lightweight cables due to the improved handling, non-corrosive properties and lack of electrical conduction.
