Compression strut systems

In modern architecture, it is important to bring the delicate design language of heavy-duty and safe tension and compression strut systems in line with the sophisticated and aesthetic lightweight construction method.

Application

The m•connect compression strut systems made from unalloyed structural steel or stainless steel are approved by the building authority and can absorb tensile forces, yet they are specially designed to absorb and distribute compressive forces. They are ideal for use as stabilizing elements and supports, suspension components for simultaneous pressure loads and as pressure bars in framework structures.

Combining compression strut and tension rod systems offer extended design possibilities.

System components

Compression strut systems are composed of fork heads including pin and circlips and the main truss elements (supplied as solid round bar for shorter lengths and hollow tube for longer lengths). Compression strut systems are manufactured as standard with length adjustability.
