Bow Truss Cable Tension Support System

This system relies on tensile forces being transferred from the stainless steel cables to the structure above and below.

Two cables follow a parabolic shape to resist wind loads. A discrete cable extends down, just inside the face of the glass to carry the dead load of the glass.

Glass is generally supported on spiders with articulating bolts.
