Cable structures

The lightness of construction – playing with free forms, wide span elements and light weight structures: wherever architectural utopias of steel, steel cables, glass, membranes and other polymer materials are developed, PFEIFER Cable Structures is involved in their realisation, making the impossible possible and stretching transparency and distinctiveness to its extreme.

In over a thousand visionary projects to date: in sports stadia, airports, exhibition centres, wide span structures or bridges, and wherever a symbiosis of weight-minimised support structures and high-performance envelope structures creates innovative architecture.

Clients, architects and engineers rely on the quality and adherence to delivery dates of PFEIFER Cable Structures, securing our technical support from the very outset of the project and putting their trust in our care and decades of experience. You can benefit from our complete service, too: we advise and support you in design, development and calculation through the implementation planning; we manufacture and deliver, install and monitor, and offer comprehensive support even after completion. All around the world!
