A new era of module connectors

Since wood has become increasingly popular as a building material from an environmental protection standpoint – and cross laminated timber explicitly in building construction – Eurotec GmbH has increasingly found itself exploring the issue of fastening and anchoring prefabricated wood elements.

The company is currently working flat out on unique solutions for system connectors. This solution is a system of all kinds of connections in modular and system design.

Individual solutions for complex designs

The key focus here is the efficiency and the quality of the products in the complex area of timber engineering.

At the very heart of this ambitious architecture lie complicated shapes, enormous structure spans and considerable structural challenges.

For our customers, we are able to develop and manufacture unique solutions in these areas of modular construction. This includes frame buildings for industry, retail and agriculture, but also bridges and more complex roof structures.

Eurotec module connectors

The company’s new products include tension brackets, shearing angles, shearing plates, tie bars and tension straps. They are used for anchoring walls, columns and ceilings.

The special features of the shearing angles and tension brackets include the different installation heights and the type of perforation, depending on the application.

To secure aligned components against shearing forces, Eurotec also developed the shearing plate, which can be put to versatile use and used to cover all possible anchoring cases.

On top of this, Eurotec’s product range includes several variants of the tension straps that can be used to create wood–wood, wood–concrete and steel–wood connections. Special holes for screwing at an angle of 45° make the tension straps particularly efficient and unique.

The Eurotec tie bar is used to transfer tensile forces to enable quick and easy base point anchoring of wooden elements in wooden, steel or concrete substrates.

The concealed wood connector

The IdeeFix wood connector is used to create concealed wood connections for single- or multiple-row series joints in wood/wood connections. It constitutes a hidden connector for making joints between the column and beam or main and secondary beam.

The benefits speak for the highly versatile concealed device: high load-carrying capacity under tensile and shear force, can be retightened and removed again and again, universal use and much more.
