Architectural Rigging

Architectural Rigging
R & G Marine & Industrial Services Limited have for many years been supplying stainless steel Architectural Rigging Assemblies to Architectural designers and the construction industry throughout the UK. The range of stainless steel fittings available are, compared with normal marine stainless fittings half the physical size, with breaking loads reduced accordingly, reflecting the point that architectural rigging has been designed for cosmetic appearance and not with the strength required for marine applications, reducing the overall cost considerably.

Architectural fittings are available for use on stainless steel wire rope from 3mm up to 6mm diameter. The wire construction being either 1×19 or 7×7 construction. The range of fittings is quite extensive and some of these are illustrated in the photographs in this section of our website. Various configurations are available. Before this range of fittings were produced, designers had no option than to utilise the more bulky marine rigging fittings, which were rather unsightly where a smaller decorative system was required.

Now smaller and smarter systems can be readily made at a considerably lower cost to the client, The semi polished finish of these assemblies looks really impressive whether utilised on timber, or steel framework or balustrading. As well as use on balustrade projects, This system can be used to make up decorative wire rope netting and mock rigging can be created for TV, Stage or anywhere where this effect is required, The system can be used both inside and for outdoor use, it can be assembled horizontally or vertically in any configuration.

As well as its architectural uses it is also suitable for plant trellis work, or makes a stylish curtain rail instead of the tradition pole/track. In reality it has many uses. The system is very easy to maintain and to keep clean as being stainless steel, just polish and a soft cloth is all that is needed to bring back the ‘as new’ look.

For applications in a marine environment say in Leisure marinas, Docks, Riverside walks etc or any application that requires a more robust system R & G can offer a rigging service using the larger stronger marine stainless steel rigging fittings and stainless steel wire rope, from 3mm diameter up to 12mm diameter. We can manufacture the assemblies on a supply only basis or supply and fit on site if required.
