Whether traditional or innovative, our connectors are what set us apart from any other manufacturer. What may appear to be a simple connection on the outside, houses a complex and strong connection inside. All Structurlam packages include the connecting steel and hardware necessary to complete the project. These steel connectors are trial fit with the wood members in our plant, ensuring a fast, accurate assembly at the job site.
In keeping with our focus on being the industry leader, we have introduced new, innovative hidden connection systems from Europe. These European connectors provide substantial cost benefits. For example, the proprietary Bertsche connection system from Germany used in the Raleigh Durham International Airport project saved over $1 million in connection and fabrication costs.
Hidden connectors such as the Bertsche system help to create clean lines and elegance while still able to carry high tensile forces.
