Ceiling suspension construction with ropes

Elegant and reliable support

Suspension Cable Systems

Elegant and reliable support with cables by Jakob Rope Systems.

Our range of cables, wire meshes, end terminations and corresponding parts allows to create elegant and efficient suspension installations. From traffic lights to artistic installations, statics solutions with steel cables are tried and tested. Jakob Rope Systems has a broad experience in working together with public authorities, architects as well as artists.

Cables allow to create suspension structures that can span up to 80 meters without additional supports. This does not only create suspension structures that are extremely elegant and minimalistic, but also very efficient and cost-effective with very low maintenance costs. Our range of inox and galvanized steel cables is supplemented by our broad range of end terminations.

Facade design

Ropes and cables are perfectly suited to realize artistic facade decorations, to mount elements, or create semi-transparent facades. Webnet meshes with Webnet ID plates are perfect for decorative use or for the creation of blinds or shutters.

Traffic signalization

Steel cables can easily span distances up to 60 meters and more. They are low in maintenance and require much less material than steel beams or other carrying structures, which makes them an extremely efficient support for traffic lights, streetlamps and overhead contact lines for public transport.

Catenary lighting

Efficiency, flexibility, elegance, low in maintenance: these qualities characterize catenary lighting systems with steel cables by Jakob Rope Systems. Since they require no space for poles or other supporting structures on the ground, the suspension structure can adapt to spaces of any size: from large open squares to small alleys. Light can be directed exactly to the spot needed and light pollution and energy consumption reduced.

Christmas lighting

Suspension solutions for Christmas lighting are a specialty of Jakob Rope Systems. The efficiency of cables is especially useful when it comes to seasonal installations. No large mounts are necessary, and the cables can be conveniently stored when they are not needed. The cables are elegant and almost invisible, letting the Christmas lights shine.
