I don't know if other fence suppliers would have anything better but these rail clamps are pretty easy to work with.

Then if there is a potential market, should I try to figure out what it will cost to get some of these over there? I use the 90 degree, t-piece, 90 degree offset, the same clamps you have in the pic and then there is one that can be adjusted to specific degrees.  The 90 and t-piece also have the capacity to have pipes at two planes (perpendicular) to be joined.

Well these brackets don't have the variety that your EZI racking stuff does.  These are just the brace rail clamps used for chain link fence and greenhouse construction and they have a cross clamp as well.  I've not been able to find any corners though hence the legs being in from the end rather than right at the corner.

 

I' haven't done much comparison to smaller metal pipe and fittings.  I can get this stuff fairly inexpensively from a building supply place where as I would be comparing to retail prices on the other stuff at the moment.

I see you have found a US source for the EZI racking stuff I have used.  Cool stuff, but in South Africa, they are an absolute rip-off on the galv pipe.  I have found that using 3/4" gal air line and the various clamps / brackets to be cheaper, even with the pipe being a much heavier gauge.  Have you compared the prices in the US?
