The Triax system from Scully Outdoor Designs takes the difficulties out of designing and installing waterproof shade structures. The system gives architects, builders, designers and installers the freedom to create individual and customised designs.

The light construction coupling system allows two pipes to be permanently joined at any angle, on-site, without welding. It can be assembled by inexperienced installers with the use of simple, non-specialty tools and without the need to rely on precision critical measurements.

Structures can be wall mounted, roof mounted or freestanding on posts. The tension of the membrane cover is not transmitted to the mounting points, instead being contained within the frame itself. This means that unlike with traditional membrane covers, the structural integrity of existing buildings is not compromised. Difficult site restrictions can be overcome and minor design modifications can be adopted if and when they occur.

The bearers on either side support the rafters and the spreader bar prevents the rafters from rolling in under the tension of the cover. The couplings support a span of up to 6 m between bearers, which do not need to be level or parallel. Two Triax T50 brackets bolt together back to back to form an adjustable coupling for 50NB pipe.

T50 brackets are also used individually to anchor the bearers in place — bolted to the top of a post, the side of a wall or any other suitably resilient existing structure. When installing, the rafters and Triax couplings are strapped in place before being permanently fixed with Tek screws, allowing the installer to check that the rafter is in the correct position and plumb, and to adjust if necessary.
