  • STAR connectors and struts are designed in a 3D space and manufactured using CNC equipment. This ensures accurate frame and cover installation. 
  • STAR connector ends are laser engraved, which ensures fast structure assembly. 
  • Every STAR Connector kit includes a wooden strut cutting manual, which shortens the strut cutting process and ensures error-free assembly. 
  • STAR Connector system creates small gaps at the top of triangles, which allow ventilation and air circulation in the structure. This ensures longevity for the wooden struts. 
  • STAR Connector system has a wide selection and adaptability. Different coating (zinc, AISI, RAL...), size (hobby, classic, pro), layer single, double-layer, depending on dome diameter and desired rigidity. 
  • If you didn’t find a suitable STAR connector, we can design and manufacture custom connectors: larger, thicker, more/fewer holes, etc.
