Composition and Materials
Cables used in assemblies are made from stainless steel and are resistant to fraying, kinking or snapping. Cables have a 7 × 7 configuration: seven individual wires twisted into seven different layers/rows to make a total construction composed of 49 wires. This creates a durable construction with high flexibility and abrasion resistance. Cable fixings and internal components are made from #SS303 stainless steel alloy. Cables are provided with spring tensioners—cable will not slacken with temperature changes; easily adjusted without tools. The SS303 is a non-magnetic austenitic alloy specially designed for improved machinability while maintaining good mechanical and corrosion resistant properties. It is fairly resistant to general atmospheric corrosion, cleaning solutions, sterilizing solutions, dyestuffs, most organic chemicals, but has very limited resistance to acids.
For durability, all cable display fittings and screws are made from #SS303 stainless steel alloy. Grub screws used with support fittings have a plastic tip made of Nylon 6-6. The SS303 is a non-magnetic austenitic alloy specially designed for improved machinability while maintaining good mechanical and corrosion resistant properties. It is fairly resistant to general atmospheric corrosion, cleaning solutions, sterilizing solutions, dyestuffs, most organic chemicals, but has very limited resistance to acids. Ceiling and wall suspension tracks and rails used for cable mounting are made from extruded aluminum alloy AL6063. All the metal components come with a 12-month warranty.
For indoor and outdoor use. Our stainless steel cable system and fittings perform well in both closed and open environments as long as there are not exposed to direct corrosive elements such as marine or submerged saltwater uses. For marine or other high humidity environments, please request stainless steel type 304/316 cables that have higher corrosion resistance. Follow the instructions and weight-bearing limitations indicated on the technical data-sheets.
Precautions / Performance and Safety
Use product properly, in a safe manner and for the application for which it was intended. It is essential to ensure the strength of the top ceiling fixings can bear the weight of the items being displayed while allowing for the tension in the cables. All components must match — make certain components such as panel and shelf supports, hooks and other fittings used with the cable system are suitable to provide adequate safety protection. Attachments must be properly installed and meet the recommended Safety Working Load Limit.
Components are suggested and warranted for interior use only. Nova Display Systems practices sustainability and recycling. Most of our display systems are fabricated from non-ferrous recycling metals — aluminum, stainless steel, brass, bronze and copper alloys. With close to 100 percent recyclable content, these metals can be repeatedly recycled into similar or other products with no loss of quality, as reprocessing does not damage their molecular structure.
