The MTC Solutions Structural Screw Catalog is the most comprehensive guide to ASSY® self-tapping screws (STSs). Within its pages, designers and installers will discover a wealth of practical and technical information, arranged in an easily navigable chapter format. This guide includes crucial design formulas for determining connection capacities and offers specific installation guidelines, accounting for various geometry requirements across a wide variety of scenarios. Additionally, this catalog provides tool recommendations, defines service conditions, and outlines all fastener references for incorporation into your design specifications. This makes it ideal for any project involving engineered wood products such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) and glue-laminated timber (glulam).
The Structural Screw Catalog serves as an indispensable tool for designing connections and ensuring proper installation of fasteners in your cutting-edge, code-compliant mass timber projects.
Near the beginning of the document, you will find sections dedicated to detailing connection resistances for both single and multiple fasteners in various loading conditions. There is also a formula summary section, complete with the references you need to efficiently design connections with structural screws. It features formulas for Adjusted Withdrawal, Buckling, and Head Pull-Through design values, as well as Fastener Tensile and Shear strengths, and more!
The Structural Screw Catalog is prepared with both designers and installers in mind. General Notes are divided into separate sections for designers and installers to ensure ease of use. Designers will find helpful references like design values and geometry requirements for our fasteners, while installers can especially benefit from the appendix, which includes step-by-step installation guidelines and recommendations for predrilling, pilot holes, and installing steel-to-wood connections.
The Structural Screw Catalog pairs especially well with our Structural Screw Connection Design Guide, creating the perfect reference tool for designing mass timber connections with our fasteners. The Structural Screw Catalog is a do-it-yourself guide that gives you the flexibility to design any connection you may need. The Structural Screw Connection Design Guide, on the other hand, offers pre-engineered, cost-efficient solutions for a wide variety of mass timber and light-frame connections commonly found in the industry.
