Triax 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 by the addition of a Triax structure.
The Triax system is so adaptable, difficult site restrictions can be overcome and minor design modifications can be adopted if and when they occur. Spans of six metres or more between supporting bearers can be achieved.
Gutters, drop blinds, heaters, lighting and ventilation can all be added to structures with the Triax system. In many cases, wiring can be fully concealed by running it within the structural members themselves.
