Pivot Joint GE F - ST F 80

Application

Applicable as a bracing element for single-arm cantilevers supported from primary steelwork or concrete surfaces, also for the knee-brace reinforcing of all siFramo 80 frame constructions. The pivot can be installed with angles from 25° to 155°.

Scope of delivery

Pivot Joint GE F - ST F 80 with pre-attached base plate

Installation

Attachment of the Joints to steel structure by means of Assembly Set MS 5P M12 S while connecting the base plate. Ab Typ 161/200 erfolgt die Befestigung über das Montageset MS 5P M16 S. Another option is to fix the Joint to concrete walls by means of 4 heavy-duty anchors. The support profile TP F 80 plugged onto the octagon is attached by means of 4 Self Forming Screws. 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).

By loosening the screw connection between Joint and Joining Plate it is possible to rotate the Joint by 90° and to use it for a cross member then (see figure 4).
