Concise illustrated guide to timber connections

21 April 2012

 Aimed at architects and designers, the new Concise illustrated guide to timber connections is a comprehensive guide detailing types of timber connections used, what they look like and the structural design constraints that affect configuration and appearance.

The guide explains the three basic methods of connecting pieces of timber together and timber to other materials: all-timber connections, metal connections and adhesives. It also looks at the most common forms of timber construction, as well as a few non-standard ones, and describes the connection most suitable for each.

Other topics covered include the key requirements to ensure the structure is sufficiently durable for its environment and life, and options for providing a specified period of fire resistance.

The guide will be available at the end of April in PDF format free to TRADA Members or at £19.50 for the printed version. Cost to non-members is £30.00 (only printed copy will be available to non-members).
