NEW! MTC Solutions’ new Rigging Guides now include the Mini Yoke anchor system. The Mini Yoke is designed to lift light frame panels such as Structural Insulated (SIP) Panels and prefabricated I-joist floors.
The new American Rigging Guide meets the OSHA safety standards for hoisting and rigging products, Clause 1926.753.(e)(2), providing peace of mind both to designers and builders.
The guidelines provided in these documents are general suggestions on the potential lifting capacities of the Yoke rigging system used in a combination of ICC-ES and CCMC approved ASSY self-tapping structural wood screws.
All Yoke anchor systems provided by Mass Timber Connections (MTC) Solutions have been tested in a North American testing facility to provide confidence to designers and safety on site.
To accommodate different rigging scenarios, such as CLT flat floor panels, CLT wall panel tilting, and glulam beams, a variety of screw options with either fully threaded or partially threaded screws is provided, allowing rigging for all panel sizes from the thinnest panels (3-1/8”) up to the bulkiest ones.
The variety of options are compatible with most engineered wood products available in North America; cross-laminated timber, nail laminated timber, glulam, mass plywood panels, structural composite lumber, etc. name it, and we can lift it!
