Spier Arts Academy vertical cables

Robert McKendrick of Scotchworx Carpentry was tasked to design and install vertical cables for a balustrade at the Spier Arts Academy at Union House in Commercial street, near the Parliament of Cape Town.

Stainless Steel 4mm thick cables were connected to manufactured steel channels rather than the historical existing Oregon timber handrail in order to preserve it in its original condition. Steel channels were secured onto wooden ceiling beams and near the wood floor for the vertical cables to fasten onto using Tensile Cables versatile swaged stud system. The high ceiling is complimented by the Vertical cable design in the room and the rich yellow color of the old Oregon timber blends very well with our Stainless Steel cables.
