Can be used in compression, tension and also reverse loadings
An architectural alternative to steelwork
Adjustable system, allowing for site anomalies and ease of installation
Circular steel creating optimum strength
Macalloy offers two types of compression struts. The Architectural Strut Range and the Standard Compression Strut System.
Macalloy Architectural Compression Strut
The Architectural Strut is offered in either: carbon, galvanised or stainless steel finish.
The Macalloy Architectural Compression Strut provides an aesthetically pleasing long taper to each end of the compression strut.
The system uses the same fork end system as the Macalloy tension bar and cable systems, allowing for a successful combination of all three systems.
The Architectural Compression Strut comes complete with an adjustable locking collar that provides a seamless link (hiding the thread used to connect the fork) between the fork end and the strut.
Available in all major CHS (Circular Hollow Section) diameters from 33.7mm to 323.9mm. Custom dimensions are offered on request.
Macalloy Fixed Compression Strut
Cost-Effective CHS solution
Available in kit form on request
Available in a number of finishes
Complements the rest of the Tension Structures range
The Macalloy Fixed Compression Strut provides an architectural, cost-effective, alternative to the standard finish applied to standard hollow tube sections.
The fork is designed with the same critical dimensions as the standard Macalloy fork end which allows for it to be used in conjunction with other Macalloy systems.
