This structural solution, consisting of galvanized steel joists and battens, is attached by Wood basic 3D components to galvanized steel tubes with a diameter of 60 mm.
It guarantees maximum durability and exceptional resistance to deteriorating factors (fungi, animals).
Advantage 1: Load-bearing structure made of galvanized steel supported by galvanized steel tubes, ensuring a long service-life and exceptional resistance to deteriorating factors.
Advantage 2: The galvanized steel tubes ensure that the posts are perfectly straight.
This solution is carried out in 6 steps:
1. Making holes in the ground
2. Installing foundation screws
3. Installation of connectors & metal tubes
4. Installing the bottom structure
5. Installing the top structure
6. Installing the floor
It is essential to first make a hole in the ground as this ensures that the screw will penetrate well into the soil.
Lubrication helps to position the foundation screw.
Our portable electric machines, in combination with a laser transmitter and receiver, are used to install the screws in a level position and do not require any specific actions.
The terrace is raised with the aid of the Vertikit/Fix 3D 60/Connect60/Tube 60/Top 60 and Wood basic 3D components which ensure that the posts are installed vertically.
The required height is achieved by sawing the tube to the correct height.
The galvanized steel structure is installed and bolted to the connectors with the aid of fasteners.
The galvanized steel top structure is installed cross-wise and bolted to make the structure sufficiently rigid.
The final step of this solution consists of installing the floor with the aid of AUTO 38 or AUTO 50 screws.
The foundations bear the load of the entire construction, therefore their dimensions must be calculated taking into account the loads provided by DTU 51.4.
