Panels Connect with Brackets – Perpendicular Intersection
Intersecting panels are butted together and connected with brackets. Brackets are connected to each panel with dowel-type fasteners.
Purpose: Transfer of in-plane and out-of-plane loads between panels. Often used as an erection aid only where connection is not otherwise structurally required.
- Capacity of connection is based on capacity of bracket and dowel-type fasteners.
- It is possible to design this connection to enforce kinematic compatibility and thus composite behavior between the two panels.
- Bracket may be proprietary. Potential bracket suppliers include Simpson Strong-Tie, Rothoblaas and MiTek.
