Connecting systems for modern timber construction engineering

Auf den nächsten Seiten finden Sie unsere Verbindungssysteme für den modernen Ingenieurholzbau:

Das MEGANT® Verbindungssystem deckt mit seinen Standard-Größen Anschlussbreiten ab 100 mm für Anwendungen in Haupt- und Nebenträger bis 500 kN Tragkraft mit nur 2 cm Einhängeweg ab. Das RICON®S -System bietet bis 116 kN mit nur 3,5 cm Einhängeweg eine kraftschlüssige Verbindung. Beide Verbindungssysteme sind für Anschlüsse an Holz, Stahl oder Beton einsetzbar. Die Verbinder MEGANT® und RICON® S werden ohne, dass sich diese verkanten beim Einhängen montiert. Die Verbinder ermöglichen einen hohen Vorfertigungsgrad.

Sie verfügen über die Europäische Bauzulassung (ETA) über eine CE-Kennzeichnung und bieten mit regelmäßiger Fremdüberwachung gleichermaßen Sicherheit für Planer, Architekten, Verarbeiter und Bauherrn. Alle Verbinder werden unsichtbar montiert, sind selbstspannend und meist zerlegbar. Sie erfüllen damit höchste Ansprüche an die Verarbeitung und Optik.

Timber construction engineering – French pavilion Expo 2015

Project: French pavilion Expo 2015 – Milan (IT)
Method of construction: Timber construction
Knapp-Connector: MEGANT® and RICON® S
Architect: x-tu, Paris (FR),  www.x-tu.com
Timber constructer: Simonin Montlebon (FR), www.simonin.com
Planning: Designtoproduction, www.designtoproduction.com
Builder: France Agri Mer
Year of construction: 2015
Details: The inspiration for the French pavilion at Expo 2015 in Milan was the covered market as a symbol of French food culture. The three-storey building is mostly made of wood, including the almost 1500-square-metre vault in its core. A grid of curved glulam beams at a distance of 1,5 metres forms the ceiling of the market hall and the supporting structure for the levels above at the same time. This framework rises to a full height of 12 metres at to specific corners, whereas it reaches up to 8 metres inside. designtoproduction was commissioned to plan the structure of the vault structure by the French timber construction company Simonin. 730 individually curved support segments with variable cross sections of up to 200 × 2400 mm had to be modeled digitally, including the connection details at more than 600 crossing points. The paver received detailed 3D CAD models and 2D plans of all components as well as manufacturing data in BTL format.
