Catenary Lighting in Ithaca Commons by Ronstan

The definition of catenary is “a curve formed by a wire, rope, or chain hanging freely from 2 points that are not in the same vertical line.” And can be used in a commercial and a domestic environment and the design ideas are endless.

Ronstan Tensile Architecture is a leader in the field of Catenary lighting. Have a look through at just some of the projects. We recently completed a catenary lighting supply job for the Ithaca Commons in Ithaca New York where we supplied a combination to Hanes Supply for the lighting installation.

The redesign of the Commons was intended to improve the retail environment and create a community gathering space in the vibrant college town.

For the design of this lighting system, the structural cables are arranged with upper and lower cables approximately 3 to 4 feet apart. The upper cable supports the weight of the 30-pound lights. The lower cable is there to provide stability to the light and to minimize swaying caused by winds.

There are additional vertical cable connections made with adjustable swage toggles, between the upper and lower cables to provide the tension required for the suspended system.

Contact us today to find out more about how we can help make your catenary lighting vision a reality!

Ronstan Tensile Architecture provided the catenary lighting structural support materials to Hanes Supply of Buffalo, NY. The owner of the project is the City of Ithaca, NY. Installation and Electrical Contractor was  Power & Construction  Scottsville, NY. Architect is Sasaki Associates (Watertown, MA).

Catenary Lighting

rf30100-226x430

The definition of catenary is “a curve formed by a wire, rope, or chain hanging freely from 2 points that are not in the same vertical line.” Suspending your lighting across wires means you can have fewer obtrusive poles and can concentrate or dilute your lighting as you wish – for example you may want to highlight a statue and play down your refuse bins or light up a car parking area, but dim down a residential road that is near to a shopping centre. Catenary lighting can be used in a commercial and a domestic environment and the design ideas are endless.

Advantages of Catenary Lighting

Economics: 
Catenary lighting can be made to be very accurate meaning less lighting is required and reducing light pollution and energy consumption.

A catenary net over an open space can work well to define a specific space. The cables can be used for lighting and also for hanging art work. It’s an opportunity to create a feature outside space. Variable lighting levels will invite people into low traffic areas.

Increased space:

Using catenary lighting means more space below as there are fewer poles and structural supports than in traditional lighting.

Improved security:
More lighting in outside space means a safer environment and an area which can more widely be used.
Ronstan Tensile Architecture is a leader in the field of Catenary lighting. Have a look through at just some of the projects they have completed and get inspired. Imagine what you can do with catenary lighting if you are providing garden design or landscaping services or are looking at designing a flagship office space.
