Material Handling System for Mass Timber Panels and Beams
The Yoke 1T is a medium-duty anchoring 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 screws. ASSY Kombi self-tapping screws allow for easy and precise installation of the Yoke 1T onto timber elements without the need for pre-drilling. 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 3,500lb into place while noticeably increasing rigging efficiency.
