Dimensioning connection nodes in
timber engineering

Sherpa connectors consist of two aluminum plates, joined in a friction-locked connection similar to a classic dovetail connection.

The system allows a secure load transfer in, against or in right angle to the insertion direction. Also tensile and compressive forces are easily absorbed and the consideration of moments stresses is also guaranteed.
