KonstruX 13 mm E12 fully threaded screw: new size for particularly large dimensions

Are you already familiar with our KonstruX fully threaded screws for timber construction? The range has grown!

Timber construction will continue to advance, which is why Eurotec is continuously working on new innovations for a variety of application areas in this industry. The new KonstruX 13 mm with E12 external TX drive stands out thanks to its wide range of applications in timber engineering, timber-frame construction, hall construction, carpentry or in the renovation of ceilings between floors. The E12 drive with external TX transfers high forces for setting the screws and facilitates linear power transmission. The screw made of hardened carbon steel can be used in service classes 1 and 2 according to DIN EN 1995 – Eurocode 5 and has a particularly high mechanical load capacity. ETA certification is available. Using KonstruX fully threaded screws, it is possible to create invisible connections, which at the same time provide a high level of resistance to fire.

Unlike a partially threaded screw, where the load-bearing capacity of the connection is limited by the lower head pull-through resistance in the attachment part, the load-bearing capacity of a connection can be increased with a KonstruX fully threaded screw due to the high thread pull-through resistance in both components. Since timber generally has a low transverse compressive and tensile strength, the KonstruX fully threaded screw used in the material serves as a specific reinforcement in this case. Accordingly, reinforcement (an insert and support to strengthen a building material) is used to increase stability.

In structural timber engineering, KonstruX 13 mm can be used primarily as transverse tensile reinforcement of warehouse trusses, at notches and openings as well as at cross connections. Other application scenarios include:

  • Main/secondary beam connections
  • Joist doubling
  • Internal truss screw connections
  • Metal-to-wood connections in various executions
  • Screw connections in cross laminated timber ceilings
