Suitable system for timber-frame construction joints

The KonstruX fully threaded screw from ScrewPro is a single system ideal for all timber-frame construction joints. The screws can be used for timber engineering and carpentry, timber-frame construction, hall construction and construction of timber elements among others.

The KonstruX fully threaded screws maximise a joint’s load-bearing capacity with a high thread extraction resistance in both components. If partially threaded screws are used, the joint’s load-bearing capacity is limited by the considerably lower head pull-through resistance in the attached part.

The required edge and centre distances can be minimised for screws that are only exposed to tension. Doubling up of joists, for example, increases the load-bearing capacity of floor joists and reduces bending. Here, KonstruX fully threaded screws join the components together in a displacement-resistant manner.
