Transparent glass facades are at their best when combined with a customized elegant support structure. Octatube is a specialist in the application of these minimalist, light structures.
Load bearing structures can consist of existing structural elements, a steel structure fabricated by others or metal components supplied by Octatube. Octatube will set down strength, stiffness and stability requirements for the support structure. Octatube’s designers generally combine glazed facades with slim support structures, on aesthetic considerations. We make a distinction between super slim structures (for example pre-tensioned trusses), slender structures (circular, elliptical or rectangular tubes, rectangular or lattice beams) and normal structures (such as open steel profiles).
