RAPID® full thread - applications
SUPPORT REINFORCEMENT WITH STEEL PLATE AND FULL THREAD SCREWS RAPID® full thread screws transfer the support load from the timber section directly to the steel plate through the screw heads. They distribute the force evenly into the end grain of the support.
TRANSVERSE TENSILE REINFORCEMENT FOR NOTCHING The structural engineer must review the requirement. If the transverse tensile load is too high for the timber section, full thread screws will be used to reinforce and secure the beam in the red line area.
REINFORCEMENT OF OPENINGS WITH LONG FULL THREAD SCREWS The area marked in red indicates the risk of cracking. The same thread length is required above and below this marking. Long full thread screws with cylinder heads are recommended. They can be positioned exactly using long bits.
TIP: the connection should first be pulled tightly together using e.g., partial thread screws. The pitch of the screws should be oriented in the direction of the main load.
CONNECTIONS AT THE BASE POINT OF THE SUPPORT RAPID® full thread screws with a countersunk head are best suited for this application. Shear forces and wind suction are effectively transferred. The RAPID® offers a high degree of security with 500 hours of corrosion resistance.
Info: In areas exposed to weather (use class 3), stainless steel screws should be used in accordance with the timber structure design code. The executive person should perform a final assessment of the necessary corrosion protection.
