Cast Connex Introduces Architectural Tapers for AESS
Posted by Tasha Weiss on October 30, 2013 at 5:29 PM.

Cast Connex (an AISC member) recently introduced its new Architectural Tapers, which are hollowed, cast structural steel conical tapers designed to connect hollow structural section (HSS) elements for use in architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) applications.


Introduced in response to demand from architects and engineers alike, the specification of Cast Connex Architectural Tapers provides a solution for incorporating tapering elements to enable lighter-looking AESS framing.

The product can be used on its own as well as in conjunction with the company’s Universal Pin Connectors.
