Star connectors are connecting elements designed to construct a complex spatial structure – a dome or other modern design. STAR connectors and struts are designed in 3D space; you can also use CNC equipment. This allows fast and accurate installation of structures. STAR assemblies can be used to connect carcass details from various types of wood, steel, aluminum, fiber profiles.

STAR kits are sold with a DIY manual. For more on DIY click here

VikingDome manufactures three types of STAR connectors:

STAR CLASSIC – for construction of pavilions, roofs, pergolas, gazebos, greenhouses, garden houses, summer houses, saunas, outbuildings, supports for creepers, and other structures.

In other words – Small construction. (3 to 12 m in diameter)

STAR PRO – for constructions where particular strength is required. Suitable for construction projects, construction of residential houses, construction of load-bearing structures of a building element, significant height or diameter structures.

For PRO projects, consider consulting with our team. (up to 30 m in diameter)

STAR HOBBY&DECO – designed to create modern interior elements: chandeliers, interior elements sculptures. Small and light construction for educational table / room / hall games. Mini model, a prototype for your future structures. Part of a garden or public space: support for creepers, the decorative structure between gels, rock garden decor or shape-giving structure, decorations, utility hole covers. (up to 5 m in diameter)

STAR CUSTOM DESIGN – create your own connector design or construction shape. There are no limits – we can do anything.

STAR connectors in terms of materiality, surface finish, corrosion resistance, are made of:
  • STAR ZN – Galvanized steel assemblies. Anti-corrosion class C4.
  • STAR AISI – Stainless steel assemblies – AISI304 and AISI316. Anti-corrosion class C5.
  • STAR ZN RAL – Painted galvanized steel assemblies. Anti-corrosion class C4.
  • STAR RAL – Powder-painted steel assemblies. Anti-corrosion class C2, C3, C4.
  • STAR RUSTIC – Steel units without surface finish, raw steel. Without anti-corrosion coating.
  • STAR CHROME – Galvanic chrome assemblies.
Methods of attaching the STAR connector to wooden parts (Choice depending on the purpose and size of the structure, need, design):

STAR Connectors on both sides (2 layers). For strong and durable constructions. Suitable for all – size structures.

STAR Connectors only from the inside. Used for the construction of small structures where the exterior coating requires a smooth surface. Best for PVC tarpaulin coating, OSB, or uncoated.

STAR Connectors only from the outside. It is used to construct small structures where it is essential to have an assembly outside due to design or other requirements.

Concealed mounting of the STAR connector, when the STAR connector is in the middle of the structure. Used for the construction of various structures. Great aesthetic image.

Frame elements – struts:
  • Wood Organic – Dried Wood. The surface is planed, the color is natural wood. Suitable for indoor or short-term constructions.
  • Wood Painted Organic – Dried, painted, varnished wood. The surface is planed, color as needed. Suitable for various purposes. Various colors, design, and decor solutions.
  • WOOD Impregnated – Deep impregnation wood. The surface is planed, the color is natural green. Durable, moisture-resistant, can be used outdoors, without additional coatings or waterproofing. Due to the sun’s UV rays, the wood fades and darkens, but the aesthetic image remains neat, beautiful.
  • WOOD Thermal – Thermo wood.  Thermal wood – Nordic pine or spruce treated with high heat and steam. Heat treatment has an irreversible effect on its properties – it becomes extremely durable, improves dimensional stability and thermal insulation. The changed wood hardly shrinks and distorts, keeping the impression of novelty for longer. Thermo wood is only suitable for small, decorative outdoor constructions without high loads, such as support for creepers or decorative sculptures.
  • OAK struts – Oak hardwood glued or solid wood. The surface is planed, the color is natural, with or without additional coatings (oil, stain, paint, varnish). Durable construction, resistant to outdoor conditions, withstands high structural loads.
  • WOOD LUXURY. By your request, we can produce from any type of wood.
  • AISI struts. Stainless steel profiles, completely corrosion resistant. AISI304 or AISI316. The surface is polished, matte. Anti-corrosion class C5.
  • ALU RAL struts. Aluminum profiles, completely corrosion resistant. The surface is painted with powder paint, any color available. Anti-corrosion class C2, C3, C4.
  • ZN struts. Galvanized steel profiles. Cold bending galvanized profiles are corrosion resistant. Anti-corrosion class C4.FERUM Struts Steel of different profile
  • FIBER Struts. Our products are widely used in sailboats, yachts, sports equipment, medical devices, telecommunications, drones, intelligent industrial robots, new energy cars, and more.
When choosing materials for struts, it is necessary to pay attention to:
  • The struts and STAR types must be selected according to loads of the future structure: weight of the covers, indoor equipment, also wind, snow and rainwater.
  • Choosing AISI STAR connectors, screws, and struts (stainless steel only construction) grants you lifetime anti-corrosion guarantee).
  • AISI STAR with AISI screws and FIBER struts can be built anywhere without restriction. Lifetime anti-corrosion guarantee.
  • It is not recommended to build STAR ZN with ZN struts 100 m and closer to the sea. Salty water accelerates the corrosion of ZN parts.
