KonstruX fully threaded screw The powerful solution for construction and renovation
One system for all timber-frameconstruction joints • Applications in timber engineering and carpentry, timber-frame construction, hall construction, construction of timber elements, renovation of ceilings, etc. • Maximum load transmission KonstruX fully threaded screws maximise a joint‘s load-bearing capacity with a high thread-extraction resistance in both components. If partially threaded screws are used, the joint‘s load-bearing capacity is limited by the considerably lower head pull-through resistance in the attached part. • Time saving A time- and cost-saving alternative to traditional connections or timberjoints such as joist hangers, joist supports, etc. • Timber has a low transverse compressive and shear strength. KonstruX fully threaded screws are inserted into the timber for reinforcement. The KonstruX “takes on” a large proportion of the forces. • Doubling up of joists, for example, increases the load-bearing capacity of floor joists and reduces bending. Here, KonstruX fully threaded screws join the components together in a displacement-resistant manner. • Hidden connections, high fire-resistance, no thermal bridges • No pilot-drilling required in accordance with approval / ETA From screwlengths ≥ 245 mm, however, pilot-drilling to 1/3 of the screw length is advisable to guide the screw in the right direction (no screw wandering). • The required edge and centre distances can be minimised for screws that are only exposed to tension.
