Surround your spaces…
with Barrier Cable Systems
Barrier Cable Systems are made up of seven wire strand cables, and most often utilized in parking decks. Since it’s inception in 1994, GSSI has been offering complete packages in a variety of styles, with primary focus on the galvanized barrier cable system.
GSSI obtains it’s galvanized strands from numerous certified distributors throughout the Southeast. In addition, our anchor products are procured from Post Tensioning Institute (PTI) certified locations, featuring zinc plating on the individual components. GSSI offers these barrier cable systems in completely turn-key packages where all fabrication, supply and installation is handled by their trained professionals.
On most projects, GSSI supplies Professional Engineer (PE) sealed drawings and calculations that ensure our products meet all code and structural requirements. The effort and planning that GSSI puts in at the beginning of your project produces a predictable, cost efficient product that is built to Surround your spaces with quality.
If you’d like more detailed information on Barrier Cable Systems, the Post-Tensioning Institute has produced a booklet, found at this link, titled “Specifications for Seven Wire Steel Strand Barrier Cable Applications”. GSSI adheres to these and many other specifications.
GSSI recently installed a difficult barrier cable project for the parking deck of the Atlantic house at 14th and West Peachtree in Atlanta. The project required barrier cables at 4” full height of the deck approximately 80 feet vertical between the ramps. GSSI took care of the usual issues that occur in such projects like sleeves and anchor locations omitted during the concrete work by others. Whatever the problem Griffin Structural had an innovative and economical solution.Beaufort Wolfe, P.E.
