TitlePyramid corner angle bracket
Project id.29
Reference sectorSMART CITY
IP Protection LevelPatent procedure is ongoing.
Description of the innovation projectThe present invention consists in Pyramid-shaped corner bracket with becket and slide guides that make easy and instant connection, installation and any subsequent disassembly of beams and pillars without using nails or screws. This bracket is easily transportable; it is realized with materials such as steel or similar. The present invention concerns the easy and rapid assembly and disassembly of a beam-pillar connection. The beams and the pillars can be of conventional material such as wood-wood, steel-steel and wood-steel or also of other materials. thanks to the internal guides , the first assembly stage, of is the connection, through the bracket, of beams with pillars, completely safe for the operator. This fastening device allows a quick implementation of the connection because these guides make the assembling easy, ensuring the local stability of the connection and the perfect beam-pillar connection as expected in the project without operator’s errors. The second assembly stage is done by connecting all the angle pyramidal brackets using appropriate cables or steel cables hooking the beckets at the edges of the bracket. This second stage guarantees, at the same time, the global and local stability of the whole structure. The pyramid-shaped angle bracket has reduced weight and volume, once connected is hermetically sealed. This assembly is executed in a specific sequence; when necessary, an appropriate sequence must be executed for the eventual disassembly. The materials of the angular bracket in pyramidal shape, including slide guide and the beckets at the edges, can be made of steel or similar materials whit similar physical-mechanical characteristics.
State of dev.Prototype
Industrial applicationthe angular bracket, allows you to join pillars beams in a short time. This technology is useful in situations where you have to assemble bungalow quickly, for example after the earthquake.
Market segmentemergency housing, quickly dismantled buildings.
Advantage factorthe angular bracket, it allows you to join pillars beams in a short time. This technology is useful in situations where you have to assemble bungalow quickly, for example after the earthquake.
Commercial challengethe angular bracket in addition to providing a useful assembly system for emergency housing, may be obtained of royalties from companies that want to produce the bracket for other uses (install gazebo etc.)
Publications and Customer Refereceswe are at the prototype stage, soon there will be published the results of the prototype.
