New screw connector from KNAPP

T-JOINT connectors for flush 30º and 45º angular screwed joints for timber construction.

The angular screwed connection is very important in modern timber construction. For example, when connecting BSP wall elements, and for the support of earthquake-proof designs and bending stiff connections.
The T-JOINT has no protruding connector parts, because it is flush mounted. The high quality steel cylinder can be readjusted at any time, creating a seamless joint. T-JOINT is universal and can be used for steel and wood traction connection in straight and angled wall connections. The elements can be easily demounted.

The T-JOINT has no protruding connector parts, because it is screwed flush. The high-quality steel cylinder connector part can be readjusted at any time and joint-sealed without visible joints. The T-JOINT is universal and is used for steel and wood tensile joint in straight and angled wall connections. The elements can be demounted easily.

Material

Cast steel (galvanized steel) or stainless steel.

Coating

None

Connector type

Screw connectors.

Attachment

By screwing with 6 mm or 8 mm CS screws.

Advantages

Tightly sealed joint for angled and straight connections, fast assembly, and flush mounted.

Processing

With HM drill Ø = 20 mm (adjustable depth stop) and drilling template, drilling template 45 ° guide, Spiral drill Ø = 6mm.

Material selection

BSH, KLH, BauBuche, KVH, solid wood, MHM (solid wood wall).

Application

For wall joint and tensile joint, tensile force transmission in combination with steel strip for bending stiff connections (superior rafters of roof overhangs) and tensile anchoring of wooden props wall and as additional fastening of wood-based panels for projecting roof.

  • Flush – no protruding connector parts
  • Tightening – no gaps, can be adjusted at any time
  • Demountable – disassemble and re-assemble multiple times
  • Fast – high degree of pre-manufacturing
  • Universal – suitable for wood and steel joints
  • Versatile – for flush and corner wall joints
  • Simple – easy positioning in the borehole

The T-JOINT screw connector is used as

  • Connector for wall joint and traction connection.
  • Tensile transmission in combination with steel strip for bending stiff connections (superior rafters of roof overhangs).
  • Tensile bracing of wooden props wall.
  • Additional fixing of the wood-based panel for projecting roof.
  • New flush mount screw connector – no protruding connector parts.
  • Joint sealing – no visible joints, can be readjusted at any time.
  • Removable – can be disassembled and reassembled at any time.
  • Fast – high degree of prefabrication.
  • Universal – can be used for tensile joints made of steel and / or timber.
  • Versatile – straight and angular wall connections can be implemented.
  • Easy to install – easy positioning in the drill hole.

T-JOINT can be stand alone or in combination with our RICON®, RICON® S, WALCO® V and MEGANT® connectors.
