Single Layer

SINGLE LAYER FREEFORM STRUCTURES / SKYLIGHTS ROOFS

Toward its client’s requests, POLARKON designs and develops special single layer structures. Single layer free standing constructions, with their simple geometry and basic low-volume coverage feature, allow for highly aesthetic and contemporary architectural design possibilities.

In these constructions the connection elements are particularly important because they are the load transfer points and the basic defining components that shape the structure.

Such node elements are developed for each structure separately together with structural geometry and statics, architectural preference and steel detail design factors.

Both the nodes and the rod elements are manufactured with production methods supported by fully digital production technologies. If desired, the single layer freeform structures can have bolted joints or even hidden bolts.
