Taupo Town Centre Catenary Cable System – 2023

Taupo Town Centre Catenary System 2 (1)

About the project


In 2023 SRS installed an 8mm Ronstan catenary cable net system, engineered through Ronstan International and Tensys with Taupo Council architects. SRS was engaged by Force Engineering who were manufacturing and installing the catenary support posts.

We used a hardwearing, 316 marine grade stainless steel, 8mm ACS2 type 1 Ronstan structural cable system with custom cable guides and custom cross over clamps, with onsite cable manufacturing to achieve the engineered solution of 23 cables creating a diagrid pattern, resulting in a standout lighting configuration.
