Description

The pre-engineered RICON® EA (Single Connector) Beam Hanger allows for the simple and fast joining of beams. This fully concealed connector is used as a timber connector for main and secondary beam joints as well as joining vertical and horizontal mullions in wood curtain walls. It consists of two identical metal connector plates that hook into each other in a dovetail-like manner. Typically, one of the plates sits in a recess and the other is plainly screwed on the surface of the beam. For easy installation, KNAPP® also offers Drilling and Routing Jigs as well as a Mounting kit. The connector plates on the end grain are installed with self-tapping 5×80 mm and 8×80 mm CS-screws and on the side grain with self-tapping 5×50 mm and 8×50 mm CS-Screws. The 8×50 mm and 8×80 mm CS-screws have an integrated stop, thus, on one end, the screw would stand above the connector and engage with the dovetail receiver socket of the other connectors when hooking them into each other.

An optional Locking clip can be installed to latch the connector. If needed, the locking clip can be removed later on. The RICON® can be installed fully concealed or visible and can be used with timber widths as little as 50 mm. RICON® is available in three versions, Single Connection (EA), Double Connection (DA) and Rampa insert (EAR) each version in six sizes 60/40, 80/40, 100/40, 120/40, 140/40 and 160/40.

*Note that the numbers in the name of each RICON® size indicate the size of the connector in millimeter. I.e. RICON 100/40 is 100 mm long by 40 mm wide.
