PINNED CONNECTION FOR POST AND BEAM

ALUMEGA

New

ALUMEGA is the connector that standardizes beam-to-beam and beam-to-post joints for post-and-beam systems, even with large spans.

With ALUMEGA post and beam connector, the theoretical behaviour assumed in the design of timber-to-timber connections is enabled:

  • It acts as post and beam connectors that allows free rotation of the beam at the ends
  • In case of earthquake or wind, the connection follows the column rotation preserving shear resistance for gravitational loads from the floor and reducing structural damage
  • The possibility of placing several modules side by side makes it possible to solve all connections on timber, concrete and steel

ALUMEGA: installation tolerance and rotational capacity.

It is the post and beam connector with the widest installation tolerance of any high-capacity connector on the market:

• due to the horizontally slotted holes, ALUMEGA can slide 8mm (+-4mm) in the axial direction
• its special geometry allows a lateral tolerance perpendicular to the secondary beam
• after a stringent regulatory process, it has been tested and certified according to ETA-23/0824

Thanks to the slotted holes, the connection is ideal for preventing seismic damage. The static pinned behaviour avoids bending moments at the supports due to beam deflection.

ALUMEGA: pre-installable and easy to assemble.

The upper countersink allows using a bolt as a positioning aid. The connection can be pre-assembled in the factory and completed on site with simple steel bolts.
