For reinforced concrete and steel
The abbreviation ‘CS’ stands for ‘concrete & steel’.
The applications range from connections in timber engineering through connections to other materials such as steel or concrete.
SHERPA connectors can either be screwed on with respect to the flat dimension, or mounted such that they remain invisible. For an invisible connection, it is necessary to mill the connector in, at either the main beam or the supporting beam. This can be done with the help of a manually operated router. Alternatively, it can be done with the help of a cutting centre and a CNC machine.
In order to facilitate a smooth assembly process, it is recommended that the connector not be milled in completely. Details can be found in the assembly instructions.
