With this new connection module smooth solid walls can be produced in circulation plants by connecting 2 panels to form a solid element.
There is no need to use a so-called “helicopter” for subsequent smoothing of the surface and thus the production capacity can be increased by up to 50%.
Further application possibilities with this connection module consist for double walls, sandwich panels and walls that are colored on both sides e.g. boundary walls.

With the new click connector 2 prefabricated panels can be joined in less than 1 minute. The crane + installation times are greatly reduced and the use of the connector results in a relatively narrow joint whereby the effort for filling the joints is also reduced (e.g. by using the Fluxx system).
A double hammerhead is pre-assembled in the first wall and is inserted into the enlarged opening of the PTA anchor channel that is installed in the second wall. By loosening the nut the entire construction automatically drops down within the channel of both PTA anchor channels.
Thereafter both washers are mounted in front of the outer part of anchor channels with the help of nuts and it instantly creates a tight and pressure resistant connection with a minimum distance between the two walls.
Mounting brackets can be largely dispensed of.
The Double Wall connector is made of glass fiber reinforced plastic and is used in double walls and insulated double walls.
It is available for wall thicknesses of 180, 200, 240, 250, 300 and 350 mm, and also replaces the lattice girders and spacers to connect the two layers.
It takes on the concrete pressure.
On average 1.5 units are required per square meter.
The distance between the connectors in the lower part of the wall is smaller than in the middle and upper part due to the higher concrete pressure in that area.
