Atlas Wood Connectors ETA: 12/0068 Beam hanger for timber-to-timber connections
Atlas Wood Connector
Can be used in almost all fields of timber construction
The only hook connection that can be completely prefabricated, enabling quick and simple connections on site similarly to a conventional hook connector. Atlas wood connectors are used in nearly all areas of wood construction, irrespective of the wood‘s grain direction, and save the user a great number of additional connection means. What is unique here is that a fixing screw is screwed into the Atlas wood connector from above, so that the components can be braced against each other. In addition, the Atlas consists of two identical parts that can be slid inside each other without restraint and smoothly, which is a great advantage during installation work.
The fixing screw that is used forms these two parts of the Atlas wood connector into a hook connector and at the same time is security against unintentional loosening of the connector. The connection that is made in this way can be statically loaded in four directions with high tested values. Installation can therefore be both visible (for broad root with chamfer connections) and hidden (milled recess).
To allow problem-free installation, every system pack includes all system screws and the matching DuoBit, together with assembly instructions.
