In 2018 Tensile Cables was commissioned by A & D General Services to supply the stainless steel cables to suspend a two flight staircase at the Cummins Southern Africa Regional Offices (CSARO) in Midrand.
While other solutions were attempted to secure the staircase from a structural point of view, cables offered a more aesthetically pleasing solutions to secure the staircase in the relatively small opening between floors.
Tensile Cables supplies Marine Grade 316 stainless steel cables and both 16mm and 6mm cables were requested to fulfil the brief.
Cables disappear from view, creating a minimalist finish to even a large structure, while still maintaining unparalleled structural integrity.
