Geometrica's structural system provides complete geometric freedom while achieving economic efficiency.
Our building system is versatile. It features a universal joint for easy installation that requires minimal equipment.
strong Hub for 3D structures
Geometrica space-frames take advantage of 3-dimensional structural behavior. This is possible thanks to Geometrica’s unique, strong “hub” connectors.
Built of lightweight and strong galvanized steel or aluminum, Geometrica bars, or “tubes” are prefabricated in our computer-based manufacturing system and mechanically joined on site with these hubs.
Hubs are compact, simple and very efficient – no welding required. Made from high strength aluminum, a hub has several threaded slots. Each tube is formed at its ends into a pattern that slides into one of the slots. When all tubes for a hub have been assembled, the joint is finished with washers and a single bolt. Complete, this connection is stronger than the tubes themselves.
Geometrica structures are unique in allowing the transfer of moments across the joint. This means that the deck or cladding can be affixed directly to the space frame members, without additional purlin elements that can be as heavy as the frame itself in other structural systems. Our structural system allows designers and engineers to create slender and light structures of double curvature that can span over 300m (1000 ft).
