Block Knoten

Novum BK-System is a versatile spaceframe system using machined solid nodes and precise welded beams from hollow sections.

What Is A BK System?

BK tubes are used in single layer and double layer spaceframe applications and are the preferred choice where geometries are close to orthogonal to keep nodes compact. Single layer applications use the BK node, and for double layer grids, the HK node (half spherical) integrates BK tubes with KK tubes creating bending stiff chord members on stiff spatial grids.

Why Choose Block Knoten

The BK-System is typically used for regular form single layer grids with planar orthogonal geometries such as domes, vaults, or triangular geometries.

CUSTOM IN APPLICATION

BK tubes are used in single layer and double layer spaceframe applications and are the preferred choice where geometries are close to orthogonal to keep nodes compact. The beams allow direct attachment of varied cladding systems.

FACTORY FINISHED

Standard member finish is hot dip galvanised inside and out after fabrication and then 2-coat finish painted 02. Options include powder coating over hot dip galvanising or galvanised only.

ASSEMBLY

High strength corrosion resistant fasteners are hidden and require prestressing into the node using special Novum wrenches. Beam ends are comprised of plates or blocks which are inserted into the tube and can be either recessed or protruded for welding.
