Free Form

Novum has pioneered the development of mechanically fastened tubular spatial grids capable of creating virtually any freeform surface geometry.

What Is A FF System?

Novum’s Free Form System is comprised of cylindrical split nodes and tubular beams with cast end adaptors. The tapered adaptors allow compact node sizes and stepping enables significant vertical angle changes. The split node provides for economy by its lightness and flexibility for other trades such as lighting and maintenance attachments.

Why Choose Free Form

Parts are often unique, and Novum’s in-house software ties geometry, structural analysis, component sizing and CNC/robot assisted production to ensure precision.

CUSTOM IN APPLICATION

Grid sizes vary, so beams come in a variety of standard depths depending on form, span and member length. Double curvature is inherently desired as it develops strength. Nodes are custom machined for tight tolerance and full geometric freedom using CNC equipment, and the FF-System requires no secondary steelwork between structure and cladding.

FACTORY FINISHED

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

ASSEMBLY

This system is quick to fabricate due to highly integrated design and production software, robotic production and optimised processes. It installs rapidly as it is inherently stable and self-aligns when fully tightened.
