The Rod System can be used wherever the cables are used. Both are elegant and show the exposed items at their best since nothing is obstructing the view. Their load capacities are very similar.
Why then two different systems and when do you choose one rather than the other?
The cables give an airy, floating impression, often almost disappearing from view in some cases. Installations with the Rod systems look more structured and symmetrical while still enhancing the overall effect of the items on display.
Our rods are stainless steel and have a diameter of 6mm (a little less than 1/4î). They have a female thread on one end and a male thread at the other, so they can easily be fastened together. Rods are available in 4 different lengths: 1í, 2í, 3í and 4í to form any overall length required.
Our basic Rod kit (RCF) is composed of parts R1 through R8 (top and bottom anchoring components), and has a spring on the bottom to assure proper tension. Whichever Rod kit is chosen, the length of the rods themselves must be added as there is no standard length of rod included.
All of the Rod kits have to be anchored into a solid material or mounted onto our aluminium track for mobility.
All components are made from brass with a satin chrome finish. Other finishes such as polished chrome or brass, satin brass and black are made to order. Brass rods must be used for these special finishes. Note however that brass rods are less rigid than stainless steel.
