suitable for domesticfioor

loading

Reduced Groundwork Beamlock cuts groundwork by up to 50% as support posts can be as much as 4m apart No need to worry about the structural support posts being at right angles,vertically or in line as the Beamlock System automatically creates a right angle along w~h any vertical adjustment.

Making the best of a sloping site I Engineers - Consultation - B Regs No need for structural engineers I consultation fees when you are challenging a sloping s~e, as Beamlock has full building regulation approval on structural and fire performance up to 22m high,You have the choice of a continuous deck level due to 22m height possibility,as opposed to deck level changes, therefore makng ~ more practical and usable,Where a post height

IS

less than 22m please ask for details,

Design Due to the beam section size provided and the assembly process there is no need for an outside joist or frame joist.Also, on a sloping site, the requirement for the diagonal brace (above Im post height) is not only a functional engineering element but also an architectural, attractive,

heritage

feature. This all resutts in a very attractive front elevation.

The Beamlock Frame No need to bo~ together the main support beams pnor to the decking sub base. The Beamlock frame is the main support frame and also the decking sub-base, unlike other conventional applications.The Beamlock section 138mm x 16Smm avoids the need to bo~ two joists together to carry an additional platform.

Longer Lasting - Avoid Wet Timber None of the joists or structural support posts will be in contact w~h the ground There is always a minimum of 50mm from the bottom of the support post to the concrete foundation.

Layingthe Deck Boards No need to consider where to place double joists as Beamlock 138mm horizontal plane provides plenty of surface area for when two deck boards meet.

use, not in ground contact

All timber is supplied in accordance with the Pan European Forestry Scheme, the Beamlock System is produced using Pinus Sylvestrus (10,800 - 13,000 bending per N/mm', comparison Oak 10,500 - 14,500 bending N/mm'). It is made up using lamellas of pine laminated togethe" thus providing incredible strength (see "Stronger Than Oak Mortise and Tenon System"). I. Timber sections are dried in a climate-controlled

kiln.

2. The lamellas are then laminated together to form a single solid beam using a high frequency hot press. 3. The beams are planed to section to achieve a tolerance

4. The finished components

are of the

or paint within 6 months of installation to avoid UV light degradation of the treatment.

Building System The Beamlock building achieves a traditional

look, with the security and reduced

costs that only modern technical production

methods can bring, leaving you to

enjoy the beauty of traditional construction in a natural material. Build times are significantly reduced with a perfect result every time, the Beamlock parts just connect uSing the pin provided. With just three major components, the Beamlock

System is an easily understood assembly process. The modular concept also guarantees compact storage and transport solutions. Beamlock products are compliant to the most recent wind code BS6399.

Beamlock Connection This is the ultimate in timber connection. It is designed not only for high strength (as tested at the BRE.), but also for use in our

variable climate. Due to the fundamental connection relying on the stainless steel plates and tubes matching up. the moisture

changes in the wood do not cause any concern or inhibit the connection system from working efficiently and easily.The Beamlock

connection

system is made with a combination

of high tensile BZP, stainless steel (grade 304L) and aluminium components. The

Beamloek design is durable and can achieve a service life of a minimum of 60 years in internal dry environments

and a minimum

of 30 years for external exposure.

Installation Advantages

Two people can easily build a Beamlock structure with minimal tools and skills. Simple assembly means that you will benefit from the

unique time saving design reducing build times and labour costs.

112

Hour Fire Approval

Beamlock System complies to BS 476-21 half hour fire exposure, which

IS

considered suitable for the support of upper floor loading.

This negates the requirement for fire calculations if half hour fire determination is required.

Weight and Construction

Advantages

Beamlock is a safe site product providing strength at easily managed weights. Posts and

beams are supplied in easily transportable

modular lengths to a maximum of Sm.There is

no need for a crane or multi lift as two people can handle all components. Typically. on a

4m span, the Beamlock components

weigh just 48kg.

Compact storage and transport solutions.

Kiln Drying All timber spends approximately

I S days in individual kilns drying out to I S% (+/- 3%) humidity.The timber contracts by about 10%

and reduces in weight by about 40%. This is a great benefit in indoor applications as the Beamlock components will not split or move

dramatically in the future when heat is applied.

Extendible

The system allows easy extension at any time from a Beamlock post, allowing your buildings to grow with your needs and budget

ensures a hazard class 3 approval allowing the posts to be exposed to the elements. Note: Class 3 approval is

subject to further application of surface coatings. Beamlock components

are supplied ready to decorate. They are planed to the highest

joinery standards and need no extra preparation before painting or staining.

Quality Beamlock is proud to guarantee consistent high quality manufacturing. We provide joinery grade timber machined to +/_ I mm.

True 90' degree Angles The Beamlock System automatically creates appropriate

angles and upright. Due to the simplicity of the connection system, you cannot

get the angles wrong'

End Tension Plate This attractive plate is also an essential technical component

of the Beamlock System. Each unused face is finished off

with the end plate which reduces the longitudinal stresses in the timber

Adjustable Post Base Plate The Beamlock System includes a comprehensive

and unique post to ground fixing solution. There are two choices of fixing. (An

additional bOmm can be achieved from the same post length giving a maximum eaves height of 2220mm.) I. New purpose built ground bearing over-site, (partially cover in concrete). 2. On an existing suitable surface, drill and fix. This specially engineered base plate is deSigned to maximise full support up to 10 tons, (tension pulling strength 1.3 tons) and at the same time positively fix the post to the ground below. An additional benefrt is the bOmm of height of the base plate for an over-site that may not be level, an ideal solution, especially in garages and stables where frequent washing occurs. Anchor bolts must be designed to

resist the minimum unfaetored loads

locking the beamplate

into the

cruciform. Place the 'goal' posts vertically in the setting out

positions and temporally support (with e.g. scaffold board) . •

Check that the post tops are horizontal using a spint level

and straight edge or other means. All post tops must be at the same level. Establish approximate desired eaves height by adjusting base plates, finally level up later

Stage 2 Lower beam into position and fix by hammering fixing pin (apply grease to all pins for ease of insertion/removal) to post connection. Place top plate into position before any further pins are inserted, and continue by tapping pins through top plate into appropriate
