Ecological wood processing down to the smallest detail? With LIGNOLOC® we rethought fastening and developed a new generation of fastening systems, being sustainable and efficient at the same time. LIGNOLOC® is the first ever pneumatically driven wooden nail for future-oriented use in industrial production and ecological timber construction (among many other applications).
On August 28, 2020, the German Institute for Construction Engineering (Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik – DIBt) issued the “National technical approval / general construction technique permit” for “Load-bearing timber connections using LIGNOLOC® wooden nails”. The approval enables the planning, design and execution of load-bearing connections in timber frame construction. Planks and panels made of solid timber, wood-based materials or gypsum fiber can be attached to wood building materials using LIGNOLOC® wooden nails. In addition, connections can be made with LIGNOLOC® to produce bracing and load-bearing wall diaphragms.
Our LIGNOLOC® wooden nails without head can be supplied with an European Technical Assessment (ETA) and are officially approved for use in load-bearing connections in all EU member states.
