Why choose Corcoran Connectors?

Our simple-to-use, cost-effective connectors enable rapid build and breakdown of structural assemblies, including trussing, motor vehicles, flat-pack furniture, factory equipment and temporary installations.

What benefits can our range of connectors offer?

  • Energy-saving push-fit connection requiring no tools or power
  • Reductions in labour costs due to shorter build and breakdown time
  • Design simplicity for cost-effective production and high-load capability
  • Re-usability and durability
  • Additional safety with dual-action lock release and integrated load sensors
  • Ergonomic design for use in difficult environments including underwater/extreme climates
  • Greater efficiency in transportation
  • Easier recycling and re-use of components
  • Waste reduction through easier disassembly of components


 What can our connectors join?

Use our connectors to join tubing end to end; tube wall to tube end; tube wall to tube wall; tube end to flat panel; panel to panel; two panels pressed together; panel edges; aluminium extrusions; awnings to frameworks; awnings to awnings; modular structures; framework structures; and more...

Our connectors are divided into two main categories:

Framework connectors used in rapid deployable and temporary demountable structures
Sustainability connectors for use in manufacture where efficient product assembly and disassembly is required to increase potential for closed-loop life-cycle and simplified recycling.

We specialise in making connectors that can be re-used time and again - in 10 minutes or 10 years.


How do we work?

We use a range of 3D-printed nylon prototypes to demonstrate the diversity of potential applications for our unique connectors. As our connectors are designed individually to suit a specific end use, we have devised a way to work with you to select the attributes of our connectors which best suit your intended application.

Our working process usually follows the following format:

 1.     Sign a mutual Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality agreement before our first meeting. This protects both parties and enables uncomplicated future development decisions.

2.      Agree an accurate design brief to establish feasibility.

3.     CCL designs a connector to suit your application and project costs and timings are calculated.

4.     Produce 3D-printed polymer prototypes (invoice point).

5.     Assess viability, introduce additions or alterations, then create further 3D printed prototypes if required (invoice point).

6.      Build CNC-machined pre-production prototypes for field assessment (invoice point)

7.      Produce 500-off (or more) completed units within a given time frame (invoice point)


During this development process, we discuss project direction and development, design detail, costings, IP protection, distribution potential, exclusivity and, importantly, product testing and certification.
