Timber structures - Tests methods - Load bearing stapled joints
|Publication Date:||1 June 2016|
|ICS Code (Timber structures):||91.080.20|
This European Standard specifies test methods for determining the strength and deformation characteristics of stapled joints in load-bearing timber structures.
The methods assess joints with members of timber (solid timber and glued laminated timber) or woodbased products in the combination proposed for use in service and using all types of staples up to 3 mm diameter for circular cross-section staples or 4 mm x 2 mm for rectangular or oval cross-section staples.
The methods determine load-slip characteristics and maximum load of joints with laterally loaded staples where various angles between the applied force and the timber grain direction or the main direction of the wood-based products, respectively, are possible.
