What Is A TC System?

Novum’s Tension Cables are used where high levels of prestress are required, or where there is a need for very long elements. Cables are typically used as primary structure so that high prestress serves to resist environmental load reversals (i.e. preventing cable compression), control of deformations, and other key design requirements.

Why Choose Tension Cable

Novum’s Tension Cables are used where high levels of prestress are required, or where there is a need for very long elements. Cables are typically used as primary structure so that high prestress serves to resist environmental load reversals (i.e. preventing cable compression), control of deformations, and other key design requirements.

CUSTOM IN APPLICATION

Cables are a clean minimalist technology via ultralight structure with a very wide range of diameters and capacities. Cables provide affordable transparency for projects of varying sizes, and different cable diameters can optimise structural needs in any application.

FACTORY FINISHED

Cables have standard galvanised finish with stainless as an option. To prevent corrosion, cable end fitting is typically the same material as base cable. A variety of end fittings are available with threads, clevises, turnbuckles, etc.

ASSEMBLY

Cables are pre-assembled, factory tested, and pre-stretched prior to delivery to site for safety and to reduce creep.
