CAST CONNEX Universal Pin Connectors were named the winner of the 2016 Architizer A+Award for the Building Products: Roof & Structural Systems category by a jury of more than 300 luminaries and thought leaders from ﬁelds as diverse as fashion, publishing, product design, real estate development, and tech. The winners were announced at a gala on May 12th in New York City.
Universal Pin Connectors are sleek, clevis-type fittings designed to connect seamlessly to round hollow structural section elements for use in architecturally exposed structural steel applications. The connectors have been carefully sculpted to provide smooth transitional geometry that is otherwise unachievable using standard fabrication practices. The connectors have been used in a wide range of projects across North America – from airports, sports venues, and transit terminals to community centers, libraries, and in residential construction. The range of use of the connectors speaks to both their aesthetic appeal and economy.
