silver anodized aluminium mounts, ceiling mount diameter 16 mm, h = 33 - 37 mm, floor mount diameter 16 mm, h = 53 - 64 mm (depending on the thread position), stainless steel cable th = 1.5 mm, l = 4,000 mm, 2 mm hex key
The special feature of this version, which is referred to as “track to track”, is that the mount is not secured on the wall or ceiling with dowels but rather by means of a flange in a attached track, which makes the whole system that much more versatile. Above and below, or, alternatively, to the right and to the left, C-tracks can be secured on the floor, ceiling or wall by means of dowels or screws. The mounts for the suspended cable are fed into the track and can be continuously adjusted or changed. This not only makes it easier to mount the cable but also, for example, allows you to hang pictures of different sizes because the cable can be moved to accommodate the different widths.
The ceiling mount consists of two parts, a flange that can be fed into the C-track and a thread on the bottom end upon which the cable mount piece can be screwed into position. The floor mount works according to the same principle. The mounts can be fixed in place by screwing the cable end piece that slides into the track until it is secure – this will allow you to position a cable at a slant if you prefer. In addition, this thread allows you to tighten up a cable that, when mounted, was somewhat loose.
Suspended cable systems have developed from their original uses as massive, heavy elements in architecture (bridges, facades, railings, etc.) into much more delicate constructions with cable diameters from 1 to 3 mm which now serve as interior design elements. They are used in galleries for displaying pictures and objects or used to make shelving and display walls at trade shows and within stores and shops in order to present goods in an interesting manner or to encourage people to take a look at current brochures. Suspended cable constructions are found more and more often in display windows because their versatility allows their continued use even in the face of changing decoration ideas. Even airy looking glass cabinets are being built with steel cables as the foundational structure, as is also the case with signage and guidance systems in airports and office buildings. In the meantime, there are now similarly built room partitions that also serve as acoustic dampeners and display areas or exhibition walls at the same time. The advantage of such systems is their ability to be quickly changed and rearranged: The always versatilely useful “skeleton” of cables can remain in place while still being able to be modified by means of adding various mounting supports, clamps, supporting beams and the like.
One reason we have chosen the MIC suspended cable system for our assortment is that it works great with the presentation panels that we developed ourselves called “Quadrat hoch zwei” – but there is no reason that it cannot also serve as the means for anyone desiring a tautly mounted cable between the ceiling and the floor or between two walls in order have a cool place to attach a brochure holder, panel or whatever.
According to the manufacturer, the system is capable of supporting as much as 80 kg “when it is properly installed”. By this they mean that the cable and the metal components are easily capable of supporting that kind of weight; the question, of course, will always be just how strong the walls, ceilings and floors are? On this question you are on your own! The cable is made of stainless steel, the mounts of aluminium: rusting components are therefore not a concern! The track-to-track version has the further advantage that you can use as many screws and screw anchors as you need.
