X-fix C is a two pice double dovetail timer-timber connector for CLT ceiling joints or wall panels.
X-fix C is a self tightening connector for shear and tensile heavy load resitant connection of CLT ceilings and CLT walls.
X-fix C is a two pice double dovetail wood-wood conector.
The instalation of X-fix C type connectors is easy. Insert the first part of X-fix C in the milling of the two CLT Panels, then put the second part of X-fix C in and finaly hammer the two pices together.
The tapered shape of the X-fix C connectors clamps even large-format ceiling panels or wall parts self tightening and form-fitting together.
The advantage of X-fix C is obvious: Fast on site instalation, form-Fitting connection ideal for visible surfaces of ceilings, no clamps – no problem self tightening hammer in connection, NO METAL only WOOD Connection!
Build wall elements containing windows and doors with X-fix C and save up to 30% of CLT panels! No CLT is wasted and is going to the cipper any more. Cost efective and intelligent.
X-fix C for CLT Panel ceilings
X-fix C is used for mounting CLT ceiling elements. The advantage over conventional bolted joints is that the patented X-fix C geometry clamps the CLT ceiling elements only by hammering in the X-fix C parts and connects them form-lockingly and 100% permanently. No time-consuming and difficult clamping together of the CLT ceiling elements!
For visible CLT ceilings, the form locking and self tightening X-fix C ceiling connection is ideal, as the joints are 100% parallel and clean.
The pictures below show a heavy CLT ceiling width = 2.5 m, length = 19 m, thickness = 220 mm and X-fix C connector.
X-fix C is characterized by excellent mechanical properties: One (1) X-fix C 100/130/90 connector has the clamping force and shearing strength of 28 kN which corresponds to 10 steel full-thread screws diameter 8 mm, length 120 mm.
Instalation of CLT ceiling elements with X-fix C type. The ceiling elements are pulled together by X-fix C and clamped form-fitting.
X-fix C is self-tensioning, no clamps needed, no unwanted gaps.
The connection of the CLT ceiling elements with X-fix C has high strength and stiffness and also is form-fitting.
X-fix CLT ceiling connections are not only qualitatively better, but also cost-superior over conventional CLT ceiling connection Systems, because of the significant time savings.
X-fix milling on the construction site with LIGNATOOL:
With a special X-fix milling template from LIGNATOOL and a vertical milling machine with special milling cutter, the carpenter can also produce an X-fix C or X-fix L milling on the construction site.
