Cable fitting system that can also be used for tensile rod systems. Werner Sobek Design provided not only design and engineering but also took care of the certification procedures for the fitting system and its preparation for production. The cable fitting has been optimised in accordance with the principles of lightweight construction: by minimising stress concentrations and removing or relieving low-stress areas. In addition the system was made more flexible by the interchangeability of individual components.
