Why Tube Connectors Are A Useful Tool to Have Handy
Square tube connectors are a fast, easy and cost effective way of joining and connecting together square tubing. Designed for multiple applications the use of push-fit tube connectors means that attaching tubes together is quick and convenient, creating a strong framework for both temporary and permanent structures.
When combined with square tubing, tube connectors can be used to construct framework that is used for multiple applications across a wide range of industries. Some of these include;
- Joining box sections
- Portable Structures
- Theatre Stage
- Security Caging
- Exhibitions Floor-Stands
- Agricultural Structures
- Tool Sheds
- Exterior Structures
- Portable Tenting
- Storage Assemblies
The easy to use design provides fast, reliable solutions that can be tailor made to suit your requirements.
The Benefits of Tube Connectors
This system is easily adaptable and can be used by anyone from builders and professionals to novices at home. The easy to fit tube connectors are so quick and simple to fit – creating firm, strong connections for reliable frame structures.
Some of the benefits of these systems include;
- Fast, simple assembly
- No need for welding or grinding
- Easy to take apart
- Strong and robust
- Time and cost effective
- No building jigs needed
- No precise measurements required
Because the tube connectors remove the need for welding – this means that not only are the structures much faster, simpler and easier to put together but that they can also be taken apart and reused time and time again.
Types of tube connectors
For projects large and small there are different types of tube connectors that can be used to help create a myriad of versatile frames and structures.
The type of connectors available starts from simple straight tube connectors followed by 2-way, 3-way, 4-way, 5-way, 6-way and even pivoting or hinged connectors.
- Round Straight Tube Connectors
Round straight tube connectors are commonly used for joining metal tubes together without the need for welding. This cost-effective alternative provides a strong and lightweight solution with the choice of optional metal cores for added strength if required.
- Hinged / Pivoting Tube Connectors
These connectors create flexibility and allow the tubing to be joined at varying angles rather than just the 90 degrees of standard connectors. For more complex structures these hinged or pivoting connectors can be used to allow for moveable parts with various angles of pivot or motion. No matter the structure requirements there is a tube and connector combination to help make your vision possible.
- 2 and 3 Way Tube Connectors
These handy connectors are ideal for use on temporary structures, displays and creating framework with metal tubing. The options provided by the 2-way corner connectors and the 3-way T shape connectors allows for a fast, simple, repeatable set-up.
- 4 and 5 Way Tube Connectors
Perfect for frameworks that require a greater range of design options the 4 and 5-way connectors are ideal for creating robust structures of all types and sizes.
Why Tube connectors are a Handy Must Have Tool
With endless applications and countless uses – tube connectors are a cheap and convenient tool for anyone to have in their bag. Use them to create bespoke workstations, shelving units, partitioning, benches or desks – it couldn’t be easier! With no need for complicated measurements or welding simply sketch out what you need from your design and calculate the amount of pipe and connectors. The tubing can be quickly and easily cut to size and you simply knock the connectors into place using a soft hammer.
