Igus – Designing a Custom Cover for Outdoor Cable Storage

Igus, a leading provider of innovative cable management solutions, sought to cover their outdoor storage area for cables. As a company that values design and aesthetics, they approached Spantech to create a modern and visually appealing cover, moving away from standard industrial tents.

Scope of work

As Spantech, our scope of work involved the design and construction of the cover as the general contractor. We worked closely with Igus to understand their requirements and ensure that the design aligned with their vision. From the initial concept to the final execution, we were responsible for delivering a customized and functional solution.

Unique features

The industrial canopy for Igus’ outdoor storage featured unique and eye-catching elements. The roof had a distinct wave design, seamlessly blending with the existing architecture of the surrounding buildings. This attention to detail ensured a cohesive and visually pleasing integration of the structure within the site. Additionally, the use of screw foundations provided stability and durability, allowing the cover to withstand various weather conditions.

Challenges

One of the main challenges of this project was the requirement for permanent engineering of an open structure. We had to ensure that the design met all necessary structural and safety standards while maintaining the desired aesthetic appeal. Our experienced team of engineers and designers successfully overcame this challenge by combining innovative design solutions with rigorous engineering practices.

Conclusion

Spantech is proud to have collaborated with Igus in creating a modern and customized cover for their outdoor cable storage. By prioritizing design and incorporating unique features, we delivered a solution that not only met their functional requirements but also enhanced the visual appeal of the site. Our commitment to excellence in design and engineering allowed us to create a structure that seamlessly integrated with the existing architecture while providing a durable and long-lasting solution. The successful completion of this project showcases our ability to deliver tailored and aesthetically pleasing industrial covers that meet the specific needs of our clients.
