Cable Tensioned Fabric

Membranes in the more classical “tent” architecture that rely on surface shape for biaxial tensioning of woven materials, typically PVC or PTFE.

What Is A CTF System?

Novum Cable Tensioned Fabric is used for long span and cost effective overhead applications requiring large areas with adequate double curvature. The CTF-System is used for very lightweight primary structures with heavier foundations or freeform surfaces.

Why Choose Cable Tensioned Fabric

The CTF-System is ideal for smaller canopies, roofs, shade structures, and areas requiring lightweight partially translucent or opaque covering with low maintenance.

CUSTOM IN APPLICATION

Novum provides a full single service responsibility for both structure and membrane. The fabric materials provide varied aesthetic and functional benefits for lightweight roofing elements that demonstrate high strength to weight performance by the utilisation of biaxial tension.

FACTORY FINISHED

A variety of standard colours are available, especially in PVC. Membrane printing is available on PVC and can be customised for full screen or logo requirements using digital technology. Cables can be galvanised or stainless steel depending on forces.

ASSEMBLY

The form of the membrane is double curved, and the surface tension is normally applied via catenary cables in perimeter pockets, though straight edges can be achieved with steelwork and heavy clamping fixings. A mix of cable stays and masts support the roof and are provided single source by Novum utilising our Architecturally Exposed and Tension Rod Systems.
