(New Extended Range)

The Magnus Hook Connector is used to create node joints in timber-frame construction. These joints can be completely prefabricated, impressively minimising the assembly times on the construction site. Two different components make up the Magnus connector, including wood construction screws and fixing screws. When in use, the two separate parts of the connector are attached to their specific structural members using the wood construction screws of which smoothly slot into one another without the requirement of applied force. The two components of the Magnus are supported against the other using the fixing screws. As a result, this adequately prevents the unintentional loosening of the joint. The Magnus connector can create joints that can be statically loaded in five different directions, with high verified load values. Installation can either be hidden (milled in) or visible (for shadow-groove connections).

Suitable for use in virtually all areas of timber-frame construction

Assembly of Hidden/Milled-In Main/Secondary Beam Joints:

  1. Begin by adjusting the end stop of the milling and assembly jig to the required size of the Magnus Hook Connector, then apply and crew on the milling and assembly jig to create a routed slot with the equivalent groove-milling cutter.
  2. Insert the connector into the routed slot and fasten using the supplied system screws. The milling and assembly jig is then placed in the same position as before on the component that needs to be connected, this is where the second part of the Magnus connector is screwed on. The connected component is now hooked in place and pre-assembly is now complete.
  3. Fixing screws are then inserted into the Magnus connector, pulling the connector and hook together (if necessary), ensuring the node joint is positioned correctly.

For visible installation, milling is not necessary and the milling and assembly jig is ONLY used as an assembling jig.

Pre-Assembly Joist:

1. To ensure that the joist can be hooked into the header, mill the groove on the overall height of the joist.

2. Mounting and assembling is as described previously.
