What are tensile systems?

Novum’s architectural tensile elements are an integral part of lightweight technical structures due to the possibility of creating minimal structure with high visual impact.

Different Types of Tensile Systems

Novum has developed two tensile systems to provide exquisite features to architectural projects. The material of choice for tension elements is typically corrosion resistant stainless steel, providing an elegant touch to design.

Tension Cable

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.

Tension Rod

Where nominal prestress is needed due to design without load reversal, or where components are short, tension rods are best. Tension rod applications are typically bracing or hanging elements as opposed to primary structure.
