KNAPP®, as a family company, is for 30 years now the specialist for connecting systems in the field of wooden buildings. Our competence is the development and distribution of connectors for the wood processing industry, ranging from furniture over window construction and facades to entire houses.

It all started in 1983 with an idea of Friedrich Knapp, founder of the company – to develop a simple connection for furniture- and interior construction, which is concealed and self-tightening. The orange connector CHAMP, resulting from this idea, has proven its worth millions of times and became a role model for all further products. All products have one thing in common until now: they are concealed, self-tightening and demountable. Nearly all connectors consist of two structurally identical parts and captivate by their simplicity.

Based on the first KNAPP®-connector for furniture- and interior construction, the product portfolio has been extended from window- and facade construction over timber construction up to timber engineering and it is still constantly being extended. Special solutions are frequently being produced, so that there is no limit to the ideas or requirements of planners and architects. Thanks to its presence in Austria, Germany and France and a worldwide network of partners and specialist dealers, which is constantly being expanded, KNAPP® is the specialist for connecting systems who plays a leading role.

Behind the name KNAPP® stands a team of engaged collaborators, who care about the direct contact: from the development, to consulting and shipment. With its innovative systems, KNAPP® offers certainly a good connection!

Product Promise – Certainly a great connection

The majority of products are patented and developed in-house. We are proud to say that most of our connecting systems are made in Austria and Germany. Our safety-tested connecting systems are reliable and checked regularly by independent research and testing institutes.
