So we have decided that we will encorporate carbon fibre rods to support our com-pods. With experimentation with surf casting fishing rods, we discovered the carbon fibre rods will keep them elevated but still allow a bit of movement and suggest an 'active' network again reffering back to telecommunication. The flexibility of the rods will also allow for our com-pods to be adjusted when neccessary according to the heights we need them. When supporting our com-pods, the carbon fibre rods give a really nice curve adding to the curvature nature of our installation so far.
A big thanks to CTS (composite tube systems) for sponsoring us with the rods. Without this sponsorship, the use of these high quality materials would not be possible.
