Infrastructure Applications

Movable bridges

Movable bridges
For 21st century infrastructure development, the Portsmouth Memorial Bridge was redesigned with e-chain® cable carriers. The restructure increased reliability, reduced costs and eliminated maintenance.

Stage & Theater

The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts requires durable construction materials to power the overhead speaker and lighting trusses. Cable reels were originally used, which caused reliability issues, so the stage management team replaced the reels with maintenance-free e-chain® cable carriers.

Kinetic Architecture

Kinetic Architecture
High-strength plastic e-chain® cable carriers are engineered for constant movement. These energy chain solutions have been used to provide stability, easy assembly and high load capacity to many moving constructions, including an NFL stadium’s roof system.
