MATERIAL HANDLING SYSTEM FOR THE MASS TIMBER PANELS
The Yoke 5T is a heavy-duty rigging system designed and tested for lifting mass timber elements such as CLT floor, roof, and wall panels. The Yoke 5T anchor is fastened onto the rigged element using four 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 5T 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 5T anchors can lift heavy timber members of up to 13,000 lb into place while noticeably increasing rigging efficiency.
