Catenary Suspension

 

What is Catenary Lighting?

The word "catenary" means any curve formed by a wire, rope or chain hanging freely from two points. Catenary pendants are mounted on a specially-designed catenary cable that is strung between two support structures (like buildings or poles).

Where to suspend catenary luminaires?

Trends show more business and leisure activities moving outside every year. Without blocking walkways and views, catenary luminaires can span the light across wide areas.

How We Test Outdoor Pendants

 

Because they are exposed and subject to movement from wind and vibrations, outdoor pendants need to be particularly resistant—particularly catenary luminaires. 

Laterna, Sequence, and Zume are all tested to UL1598 and IP65. Catenary models passed ANSI C136.31, the national standard for roadway and area lighting equipment to withstand vibration. This test far exceeded the stress a catenary fixture would need to endure (because it is meant for rigid mounting), but all three luminaires were engineered to meet that mark.
