The Quattro system consists of four components:
1. glass panels
2. fixings for the glass panels
3. Quattro nodes (or DUO/MONO nodes depending on the detail)
4. stabilising/load bearing structures
Quattro nodes provide the interface between the glass sheet and the stabilising support structure. The form of the nodes is derived from the shortest distance between the holes in the glass sheet and the central placement of the support structure, which normally runs along the axis between two glass panels. With four holes in the corners of each of four glass panels, the typical resulting form is a diagonal cross.
While our Quattro systems are named after this most common format, Trio, Duo and Mono nodes are also possible. For example, two adjacent holes with a straight connection crossing a central support result in a Duo node. At Octatube we distinguish between standard, system and special nodes. The cast stainless steel Quattro node is an example of a standard format. The nodes are in metal: cast aluminium, modular cast iron, welded or pressed steel or cast, welded or pressed stainless steel. These elements can be treated and finished in many different ways.
