Like 300 full-grown building workers
von | Jan 20, 2010

This standardised fastening system, called "Tennect" by Carl Stahl, is the first of its kind. It was introduced to the european public at Deubau 2010 in Essen.

"Tennect" allows a point or linear fastening and tensioning of load bearing structures. The connection elements and the acting forces adjust automatically in the direction of pull. This three-dimesional adjustable system can balance dimesional tolerances, makes the installation easier and minimises the planning effort. The statical proven elements are available in different sizes and are suitable for forces from 25kN up to 300kN. This is comparable to a load-bearing capacity of three hundred full-grown building workers.
