Dimensioning tools satisfying all requirements
We offer you three options: an interactive table of load values, a dimensioning tool, or our personal planner service.
- With the load table, you can quickly and easily choose the static values.
- By using the dimensioning tool, you can make your own pre-dimensioning.
- Through the planner service, our engineers will personally assist you with the pre-dimensioning of your projects. The close cooperation during the planning phase is very efficient for the realization of your projects.
Table of load values
The characteristic values and the measurements according to ETA-10/0189 (edition 29.03.2019) are listed in the interactive Excel table of load values and are chosen based on your criteria. A selected pre-dimensioning can be calculated easily and quickly. Furthermore, it is possible to calculate oblique connections with the chosen screws. The load table is available for the connectors GIGANT, RICON, RICON S and RICON in stainless steel.
When using the dimensioning tool, timber dimensions and the required connector sizes can be calculated easily, no time-consuming pre-dimensioning necessary. This is an auxiliary tool that provides the planner and structural engineer with a basis for the static calculation of the projects.
The calculation tool for the connectors RICON®, RICON® in stainless steel and RICON® S is available to our customers free of charge after registration.
Personal planner service
