MATERIAL HANDLING SYSTEM FOR LOGS, MASS TIMBER PANELS AND BEAMS
The Transport Anchor is designed for quick and simple on-site installation by engaging the throat of the anchor on a ½” fully threaded ASSY Kombi screw sitting proud of the element surface. The self-tapping screw used with the Transport Anchor is specifically designed for high-performance steel-to-wood connections and is ICC-ESR code-approved in the United States and CCMC (Canadian Construction Materials Centre Reports) code-approved in Canada.
The screw used with the Transport Anchor can be simply installed on the surface of the element and removed after the lift. Additionally, a circular housing can be milled into the panel allowing the screw to be left in place after the lift, sitting below the surface and out of the way.
Following the guidelines in our Rigging Design Guide, and with a well-designed truckload sequencing, four Transport anchors can lift heavy timber members of up to 2,500 lb into place while noticeably increasing rigging efficiency.
