MATERIAL HANDLING SYSTEM FOR MASS TIMBER PANELS AND BEAMS
The Yoke 1T is a medium-duty rigging system designed and tested for lifting lightweight and mass timber elements such as glulam beams, and CLT floor/roof panels. The Yoke 1T anchor is fastened to the rigged element using two ASSY Kombi fully threaded self-tapping screws, allowing for an easy and precise installation without the need for pre-drilling. The self-tapping screws used with the Yoke 1T system are specifically designed for high-performance steel-to-wood connections and 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 Yoke 1T anchors can lift heavy timber members of up to 3,500 lb into place while noticeably increasing rigging efficiency.
