found the course very interesting and I think our team learnt a lot. I’ve been doing structures for the past eight years. It’s as I told Duncan Riley of DWR, there is no such thing as bad training. You always learn something.Leslie Wahl MGG Productions
Box Corner 40V HD28/03/2018
After the successful introduction of the innovative HD box corner, Prolyte now extends this range with a HD box corner for the 40-series truss.
Fully plated and bolted
The loading capacity in any 2D or 3D truss structure is always influenced by the strength of the corner type used. We all know that box corners offer more strength than regular corners, but still, their strength does not match the strength of the straight trussing. Something you would expect, and would certainly make the lives of all engineers and riggers a lot easier.
By developing a new type of box corner, Prolyte does exactly that. Replacing the welds by bolts and the open structure by plated sides, the integral structure of the box corner gains strength in all directions. Not suffering from the loss of material strength caused by the heat affected zone. The new HD box corner range, the BOX-30-HD and BOX-40V-HD are fully plated and bolted elements and are therefore much stronger than the regular box corner. This allows you to build any 2D or 3D structures without losing involuntary strength due to the corner types used.
Due to its clever design, where the plated sides interlock with each other, the exact 90-degree shape is guaranteed, offering narrow tolerances. Furthermore, the plates can easily be changed in case of damages, offering an efficient and cost effective solution.
All standard available accessories for the regular box corner can be used for the HD box corner as well, like the male and female half couplers and bolts.
