Pivot Joint GE F 100/160

Application

Applicable as a bracing element for single-arm cantilevers in conjunction with siFramo 100/160 section, and for the knee-brace reinforcing of all frame constructions. The pivot can be installed with angles from 25° to 155°.

Scope of delivery

Pivot Joint GE F 100/160 with pre-attached 100/160 joining plate

Installation

Attachment of the Joints to the 160 mm face of Beam Section TP F 100/160 by means of 4 Self Forming Screws FLS F at the base plate. The support profile TP F 80 or TP F 100 (depending on joint type) plugged onto the octagon is also attached by means of 4 Self Forming Screws, so 8 Self Forming Screws are necessary in total. The cutting length of the support profile can be determined by the table below-mentioned. After installation at the desired angle the screws have to be tightened with 29.50 lbf/ft (40 Nm).
