Urban Design believes the structural integrity and fine finishing of all components within their structures is of prime importance. Connection of horizontal tubes is a regular structural feature of our structures and one where clients normally ask for the minimum visible structural connection. By the use of welded spigot connectors as shown in the images below only minimal fixings are visible once the connection has been made. Here we see a running member being slid over a spigot tube which is pre welded to a canopy arm. The tubes will be bolted in place once located in position on site. Whilst a more labour intensive system in the production process, we believe the end result is visibly far more pleasing than the heavy bolt and plate systems regularly seen on structures and it is a system our clients regularly request on repeat projects.
