The innovative nature of X-RAD lies in its ability to invalidate the standards of wooden constructions thanks to the advantages it offers: higher precision, reduced installation time, greater safety on-site, reduced number of components needed for fastening, excellent static performance.
Rothoblaas' X-RAD is a complete connection system for all types of CLT buildings. Extremely simple, it is made up of 3 parts: X-ONE, X-PLATE, and X-SEAL. Mechanical, thermal and acoustic behavior optimized to ensure maximum performance.
X-ONE is the main component of the X-RAD connection system of Rothoblaas, it is the first connection in the world designed and optimized to make the most out of the CLT's mechanical resources. It can be used in the complete X-RAD system for multi-story buildings and in all applications that require the transfer of strong stresses.
Connection system ideal for seismic design with tested and certified values of ductility (EC - ETA 15/0632).
X-PLATE is the range of certified steel plates for mounting the CLT panels on the building site, made up of X-BASE, X-MID and X-TOP. The connectable panel thicknesses vary from 100 mm to 200 mm. X-BASE plates introduce a new concept of ground alignment and creating the attachment to the ground, making the mounting of the walls extremely precise and quick, with a saving in building times of between 50% and 70%.
- The range meets every on-site need, from attachment to the ground, to connection between walls at different levels and with different thicknesses, to fastening the walls at top level.
- High quality guaranteed by the CE marking according to EN1090 of the X-PLATE components
This is a pre-shaped closure that is suited to the morphology of the X-ONE and X-PLATE components. X-SEAL guarantees air and wind tightening, reduces the transmission of acoustic vibrations through the air and attenuates the single-point thermal bridge.
The use of X-SEAL in combination with the range of Rothoblaas acrylic tapes ensures quick execution and a perfect preservation over time of the seal characteristics against air and wind
Rothoblaas' technical office guarantees all the necessary support for the first realization with the X-RAD system, from the design to the construction phases.
