T-Bar and Cross-member Jointing System

  • Monday, 21st March 2011
  • Reading time: less than a minute

Biteam has developed a new 3D woven T-Bar profile, comprising a fully integrated single-piece T beam with a solid square / rectangle bar at the tip of the T profile’s web.

The T-Bar has been developed for enabling a jointing system that functions as stiffener and supporter for producing large structures, just as found in woodwork. The T-Bar is designed to fit with a cross-member having a matching cutout so that the two lock mechanically.

Suitable panels/sheets can be fixed at either one or both sides of the jointed structure to manufacture the required products. T-Bar beams and cross-members are producible in different dimensions according to application needs. The expected advantages of the new T-Bar jointing system are:

– One-piece construction – no ‘noodles/fillers’, plying and stitching required.
– Flat sides of the T-Bar provide large bonding/fastening surfaces.
– Improved structural rigidity and reliability.
– Flexibility in construction.
– Customized performance.
– Reduced constructional labour, time and cost.
