BRACED TUBULAR STRUCTURES

Solid (shown) or plate node joints can be used with XPC tube-to-plate or fixed-thread configurations to create even  the most complex load bearing structures for:

Bracing struts and structural frameworks for buildings
Roadside furniture
Satellite and aerial supports, surveillance camera mountings
Fences, gates, security barriers, grilles walkways
Military command/hospital/protection systems and disaster relief structures (including those with more than one tier)
Lightweight military and civil use bridges and cradles
Portable frames and cranes, test stands, workshop furniture.
Canopies, shelters, awnings and tentage, display stands.
Flat-pack DIY self-build projects, from sheds and greenhouses to conservatories.
