System WB

Simple, cost-effective solution for lateral tensile reinforcements for glu-lam timber structures

With the high-capacity WB system, timber engineers can realize remarkable structural designs competitively. No compromise is necessary when it comes to safety or aesthetics.

The WB system is ideally suited to reinforcing the axial tensile strength of inclined multi-panel timber supports at junctions, gaps, openings and cross connections. The anchorage is entirely mechanical with no adhesive, so any timber engineering concern can use it for reinforcement work.

WB-T Carbon Steel: Reinforcement and timber to timber connections

High tensile strength
The high tensile strength of 800 N/mm2 means that up to 50% fewer threaded rods are needed in comparison to other systems.

Installation without adhesive
The entire force transmission is via the fastener thread. Time-consuming additional adhesive application is eliminated.

Individual lengths cut to size
After being cut to length individually, the threaded rods can be inserted and directly countersunk using the special insertion sleeve.

Advantages

  • High tensile stength of 800 N/mm2
  • Reliable calculation using simple general design principles
  • Individual length cutting
  • Savings of up to 50% in installation time
  • Extremely economical and efficient system
  • Invisible
