This 2V bracket set allows you to to prefabricate triangular dome panels that will later fasten to one another during construction. This will let you prefab your dome panels at a shop, garage or anywhere off-site to save time at the construction site. These simple yet very precisely manufactured brackets take away all the headache from constructing traditional dome panels by not having to make complicated compound miter cuts.
SAY GOODBEYE TO COMPUNDIONG MITER CUTS ALLTOGHTER
After successfully building a 1V & 2V dome at our property in Wisconsin using nothing but miter cuts, we knew there had to be an easier way to construct tapered triangular panels. With simplicity in mind, we designed corner bracket that screws on-to the end of each strut and creates a strong tie between struts.
These new corner brackets give the the option to create a flat base so that you could screw on an exterior panel that sits flush to all 3 struts. The only 2 operations to achieve this is cut each strut down to size and then run both sides of each strut thru a table saw at a specified angle. ( these brackets will work standard 2x4's & 2x6's as well but it will not flush with OSB sheathing unless you cut an angle on each stud with a table saw)
Panel exterior options:
- 1/2" OSB
- Clear Vinyl
- Waterproof canvas
- Plexiglas or clear acrylic
- struts can be ripped on both sided to create a flush mounting surface
- Joints will be made using our new corner system using thick .188" thick steel brackets
