Welcome to KNAPP Connectors
Research and Development

KNAPP® Connectors was founded over 30 years ago by Austrian inventor, Friedrich Knapp. Starting with connecting systems for furniture and architectural millwork, over time KNAPP® Connectors has expanded its development in connecting systems for decking, window and door manufacturing, stair manufacturing, modular and prefab construction, timber frame and mass timber construction. It has been our passion and privilege to develop and distribute our patented connectors worldwide.

The KNAPP® Research and Development team would like to offer you the opportunity to share your idea of what the next connector should be. Do you have your own idea for a connector and need someone to refine, manufacture, and supply it? Maybe you simply have found an application that is in need for an innovative connector. Our R&D program offers the possibility to design and develop the best, most efficient, and innovative solution to make your projects come to life.

What does the process look like?

  1. Tell us what application you need a connecting solution for. (there is no charge for an initial consultation)
  2. If we decide to take on the project, KNAPP will ask for an NDA agreement to be signed.
  3. We will then create a project proposal, introducing solutions and ideas. This is where inventing starts…

Fill out the form and share your idea!

Please allow up to 24 hrs for a KNAPP representative to reach out to you. Thank you, and we look forward to connecting with you soon!
