MATERIAL HANDLING SYSTEM FOR LIGHTWEIGHT WOOD ELEMENTS
The Mini Yoke is a specialty rigging system designed and tested for lifting lightweight timber elements such as Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) and prefabricated I-Joist floors. The Mini Yoke is fastened to the rigged element using ASSY SK self-tapping washer head screws, allowing for an easy and precise installation without the need for pre-drilling. The special screw pattern of the Mini Yoke allows the anchor to be placed on narrow I-Joist members. ASSY SK self-tapping screws are ICC-ESR code-approved in the United States and CCMC (Canadian Construction Materials Centre Reports) code-approved in Canada.
Following the guidelines in our Rigging Design Guide, and with a well-designed truckload sequencing, four Mini Yokes can lift premanufactured light frame panels of up to 2,000 lb into place while noticeably increasing rigging efficiency.
