HMR Compression Strut System

In addition to our innovative product range, HMR have introduced an architectural compression strut system which can be perfectly integrated into any structural application.

Compression struts consist of standard fork connectors plus a central hollow section with a welded tapered cone at each end.

Threaded studs are used to connect the forks with the tapered hollow section. The system is designed to enable transmission of both tensile and compressive forces.

CHS sizes and Capacities

Notes: Compressive load is calculated according to EN 1993. In all cases a structural calculation should be carried out by the contractor.

Length adjustments

The pin to pin length is the distance between the centres of the pins. The exact length can be set by turning both left and right-hand threads of the fork end connectors.

  • Self-colour*
