Creative Solutions with stainless steel cable and mesh systems
From balustrade in-fills and fall protection to complex zoolutions: CARL STAHL ARCHITECTURE is a specialist for almost any application involving stainless steel cables and mesh. Ever since 1880, CARL STAHL has been up among the leaders when it comes to ropes and cables – originally in the form of natural fibre ropes for agriculture and today as a supplier of steel cables and lifting equipment for very heavy loads. CARL STAHL’s “ARCHITECTURE” division was established in the nineties under the umbrella of its tradition-steeped parent. From consulting and planning through structural calculations to manufacturing and installation, CARL STAHL ARCHITECTURE provides end-to-end services to customers seeking to realize creative ideas with the help of ropes and cables, meshes and stainless steel system components – no matter where they are in the world.
Balustrade infills are an important and diverse field of application for stainless steel wire ropes and stainless steel cable mesh. The balustrade infills serve as fall protection and meet the construction requirements with low dead weight.
Compared to the common, stiff balustrade infills made of glass, metal or rods, wire ropes and cable mesh made of stainless steel offer a high degree of flexibility for the application area of railings. Thus, individual railing courses can be realized without great effort – it can be installed easily and quickly with a variety of connections.
X-TEND stainless steel wire mesh requires a frame construction in the form of border cables or border tubes, which can be provided on site or by Carl Stahl Architektur.
I-SYS stainless steel wire rope systems can serve as such frame construction but can also be used as a balustrade filling.
Safety plays an important role in daily life – we face various safety and protection measures everywhere. Constructions out of stainless steel cables and meshes are used in numerous sectors as safety measure.
Fall protections are the biggest sector of safety measures. However, the application possibilities go far beyond them. Our products fulfil the technical, constructional and design requirements also as bird protection, throwing protection or ball catching mesh. Due to their high transparency, stainless steel cable and meshes fit into the overall appearance of the building easily and unobtrusively.
X-TEND stainless steel cable meshes require a frame construction out of border cables or border tubes which can be provided on site or by Carl Stahl Architecture.
I-SYS stainless steel cables can be used as such a frame construction but also be installed as safety element.
Façades emphasise the building and fulfil numerous tasks. They protect and cover the building and present it. I-SYS stainless steel cable constructions, X-TEND stainless steel cable meshes and X-LED LED modules enable various design options for all facades and offer safety at the same time
In the field of façades, constructions out if stainless steel cables and stainless steel cable meshes are used as fall protection but also in composition of façades. They convince with their longevity, lightness, transparency and weather resistance and are capable of taking strong tensions.
X-TEND stainless steel cable meshes require a frame construction out of border cables or border tubes which can be provided on site or by Carl Stahl Architecture. They can serve as unobtrusive protection or can additionally be used as composition surface by adding greenery or design elements.
I-SYS stainless steel cables can be used as frame construction but also be installed as safety element or fixture for design elements.
Due to greenery elements, it becomes possible to take green into the city and make nature perceptible there. Also in modern planning of cities, high importance is attached on integrating more and more plants and green areas into the cityscape. They are able to create a relaxed atmosphere and the plants give a vital aura to façades of for example buildings and parking garages.
In greenery, constructions out if stainless steel cables and stainless steel cable meshes are used as trellis system, for greenery and protection of facades or as design element. They convince with their longevity, lightness, transparency and weather resistance and are capable of holding plants even over decades.
Due to the flexibility of GREENCABLE trellis system, it becomes possible to tension stainless steel cables in different courses and like this influence the growing direction of the plants according to personal preferences.
X-TEND stainless steel cable meshes require a frame construction out of border cables or border tubes which can be provided on site or by Carl Stahl Architecture. They can not only serve as greenery element but also for safety.
I-SYS stainless steel cables can be used as frame construction but also be installed as holding for plants or safety element.
SUSPENSION CABLE SYSTEMS
Stainless steel cables belong to the most versatile elements in architecture. From balustrade in-fills and suspension of different objects over applications in the area of design and shop fittings to stabilising cables as wind bracings, the fields of application are almost unlimited.
In architecture, our suspension cable systems convince with their longevity and stability and are filigree and restrained at the same time. Due to their flexibility and with more than 1.200 components in the product line, they can be adapted individually to different applications inside and outside.
I-SYS wire rope assemblies are especially used in constructive architecture as wind bracings or for suspension of taller elements such as mounted façades. Furthermore, they are used as protection element of filigree balustrade in-fill.
The modular system POSILOCK is used in interior design as elegant and transparent suspension for example in fair construction and shop fitting but also for designing living or office rooms
Zoo facilities set high demands in architecture and the chosen products. They have to provide safety and stability as well as an unlimited view and enable species-appropriate keeping.
Due to huge span widths and flexibility in form finding, lightweight constructions out of stainless steel cables and meshes offer numerous possibilities of designing individual zoo enclosures that adapt ideally to surroundings, ground and the demands of the particular animal species. They offer a high degree of safety to animals and visitors without setting limits to the view on the animals.
X-TEND stainless steel wire mesh have to be tensioned and brought into shape with the help of pylons and I-SYS stainless steel wire rope assemblies.
The spectrum of services from Carl Stahl Architecture reaches from first consultation over creation of tender documents to turnkey installation and maintenance.
X-LED light module system for architectural illumination offers uncountable possibilities for creative ideas and individual applications. Individually controllable light diodes create moving images and impressive light design.
From illumination of historic buildings and modern architecture over eye catchers on events up to extraordinary marketing measures, every imaginable architectonic illumination can be realised with X-LED.
Due to different sub-structures, the illumination system can be installed fix or handled flexibly. In combination with the light structure, 16.5 possible colours and three-dimensional formability, there are no limits set to your creativity. We realise your project with our standard components and individually created special components.
