Seite 1Modern screw connectorsDesign and use in CLT, Gluelam and LVLBy Michael Koenig
TopicsPictures of projects• Expo Roof• Airport Paris• Mt Ruapehu• Waitomo CavesModern screw connectors• Partial thread and full thread and field of use• Head shape and recess• Samples of connections• Pre drilling• Corrosion issuesTechnical information• Where to get information from
The roof of the Expo 2000 in Germanyapprox. 10,000,000 screws are in use here, to ensure the permanentstrength of the wood.
Modern screw connectorsModern screw connectors today are:• Self-tapping screws for use in timber structures• No pre drilling is required (except hardwoods)• The main characteristics are:- thread: full or partial threaded- head shapes
Modern screw connectorsFull thread or Partial threadFull thread- for long screws no clamping effect- with remarkably high load bearing capacityin tension as well as in compression- inclined screws can work as framed trussPartial thread- with clamping effect, pull together- clamping effect is depending on head shapeand size
Modern Screw ConnectorsMain head shapes and recessWasher headCountersunk SPAX T-STAR plus recess forbest driving home performance
Modern screw connectorsCountersunk head• Main use for full threaded screws• Flush counter sinking in timber• Small head diameter for reduced visibility• For partial threaded screws small load bearingcapacity in tension due to head diameter• Can be used also in counter sunk steel plates for steel totimber connections
Application examples: Countersunk ScrewsWall fastening, timber frame constructionSecure joining of wallelements, for example
Modern Screw ConnectorsWasher head• Best use for partial thread screws• Plain contact to timber• Big head diameter• For partial threaded screws high load bearingcapacity in tension due to big head diameter
Application examples: Wascher Head ScrewsFastening rafters, purlinFastening the rafters, pulledtightly together using thewasher head screw.No purlin anchors / triple gripnecessaryHigh wind uplift load bearingcapacity
Modern Screw ConnectorsCylindrical head• Only use for full thread screws• Flush counter sinking with timber, orslightly deeper sinking possible• Very small head diameter for reduced visibility• Is not recommended for use insteel to timber connections• Also data on screw reinforcement available from Expan
Application examples: Fully Threaded ScrewsTransverse tensile reinforcement in accordance with DIN 1052:2008Reliable alternative to bondedreinforcement boards and gluedthread rodsWork can be performed by anycarpenters shopNo bonding approval requiredWork can also be reliably performedon site (e.g. restoration of buildings)

Corrosion controlZinc: for internal use onlyHot dip galvanize: for external use in low corrosive areas. (Lowtensile fasteners only)Delta-Seal: ideal for treated timber in low corrosive areasStainless Steel: in exposed high corrosive areas
