Yoke XL

Material Handling System for Lifting Mass Timber Elements

The Yoke XL is a heavy-duty anchoring system designed and tested for lifting various heavy mass timber elements including CLT, NLT and DLT panels. In addition to lifting heavy panels horizontally, the Yoke XL is engineered for safe and efficient wall panel tilting and lifting when used on the panel’s narrow edge. The Yoke XL anchor is fastened onto the rigged element using ASSY VG CSK Fully Threaded screws. ASSY VG CSK self-tapping screws used with the Yoke XL system are ICC-ESR code-approved in the United States, and CCMC (Canadian Construction Materials Centre Reports) code-approved in Canada. The screw tip mimics a drill bit and bites into the wood to ensure a quick and easy installation of the anchoring system without any pre-drilling. The Yoke XL can be used in various screw patterns, with 4, 8 or 12 screws to cover a wide range of panel weights and lifting scenarios.

  • Installed with code-approved 3/8” [10 mm] diameter ASSY VG CSK or ASSY Kombi structural self-tapping screws
  • Specially designed to lift:
    • Mass timber roof and floor panels (CLT / DLT / NLT)
    • CLT wall panels
    • Glulam beams 
  • Fast & easy installation allowing for efficient truck unloading sequencing
  • Lightweight and easy to transport
  • Capacity rated strength
  • Powder coated finish

Following the guidelines in our Rigging Design Guide, and with a well-designed truckload sequencing, four Yoke XL anchors can lift heavy timber members of up to 18,000lb into place while noticeably increasing rigging efficiency.
