Modern architecture
The current trend in modern
architecture is, by the skilful
use of steel and glass, to
present large-scale buildings
as airy, futuristic constructions
soaring skywards.
Outstanding features of this
style of building are roofs that
seemingly float on air, with
a filigree supporting frame-
work and skilfully suspended
facades.
The availability of special,
easily integrated fastening and
support elements is a pre-
requisite for the optimum
implementation of this form
of construction. The special
tension rod and compression
strut systems, as integral ele-
ments
in the building design,
must guarantee maximum
functionality and safety. At
the same time they must
blend into the whole con-
struction as clearly visible
design elements with aesthe-
tic appeal.

t product program
The product range of m·con-
nect tension rod and com-
pression strut systems was
specially developed for the
smooth fulfilment of these
tasks.
The products meet the tough-
est demands and, due to their
wide-ranging applicability, are
of great practical benefit to
• architects,

construction engineers
• construction companies
Tension rod and compression
strut systems
The m·connect tension rod
systems are the ideal compo-
nents to distribute tension for-
ces in an economical and,
at the same time, elegant
manner. They are suited to
all types of suspension and
anchoring. Connection plates
(circular disks) and connecting
lugs provide optimum additio-
nal features.
The m·connect compression
strut systems are able to bear
tension forces, but are also
specially designed to take up
and distribute compression
forces. They are ideally suited
to act as stabilizing elements
and supports, suspension
components on simultaneous
compression loads and com-
pression struts in frame con-
struction.
By combining compression
strut and tension rod systems,
additional construction poss-
ibilities are available.

Design elements of
significance
As clearly visible elements,
the m·connect tension rod
and compression strut systems
are of crucial significance
in the representative design
of the building. They blend
easily, in a filigree fashion,
into the sophisticated archi-
tecture and shape the style
of the structure.
Elegant designs of
lightweight construction
The highest demands were
made in the design and finish
of the components. This also
applies to structural connections,
such as the connection lugs,
whereby functionality is to be
expressed through the corre-
sponding design.
In line with the principle
design follows function the
distribution of material corre-
sponds to FE (finite element)
calculated operational stresses,
whereby for the fork heads,
the component function finds
convincing expression in the
optimized droplet shape. The
cap nuts consistently follow
the form of the fork heads and
by a smooth transition seem
to merge with the connecting
tension rod.

The m·connect construction
elements are designed strictly
according to the application
demands. In this way they
offer an economical and at
the same time attractive
solution to a wide range of
tasks in the field of construction.
As the distribution of materi-
al corresponds to the loads
imposed, the high-tensile
materials are exploited to
the optimum level.
This permits lightweight cons-
truction at maximum loading
capacity.
The modular system and
corresponding enginering soft-
ware further facilitate imple-
mentation and speed up the
design and construction cycle.

Multiple applications
With the m·connect tension
rod and compression strut
systems, typical static design
challenges can be expertly,
elegantly, stylishly and eco-
nomically solved - at a single
stroke!

FORK HEADS
Only a few components are
required for the formation
of m·connect tension rod and
compression strut systems.
The fork heads are of crucial
importance in the system as
connections for the structural
attachments (see p. 14).
The operational load capacity
of the fork heads is approved,
both
for tensile and compres-
sion loads. They are corres-
pondingly designated for use
in tension rod and compres-
sion strut systems.
A quenched and tempered
steel casting, manufactured in
a quality lost-wax investment
process, bestows the compo-
nent with great strength and
excellent cold tenecity.
For maximum corrosion pro-
tection of the threaded con-
nection, the tapped hole
takes the form of a pocket
not a drilled-through hole.

TENSION RODS
The MÜRMANN plant can look
back on more than 40 successful
years of experience in the
manufacture of threaded rods
and studs. The threads can be
produced by cutting (CNC or
cutter head), rolling or spinn-
ing process. The tension rods
are equipped with left-hand /
right-hand threads for length
adjustment and with flat faces
on both sides. Individual rod
lengths of up to 12 m can be
supplied as standard. The
high-strength fine-grained
structural steel S460N is the
standard component material.
Other materials, including a
range of stainless steel can
also be supplied.

CAP NUTS
The m·connect cap nuts are
used to lightly lock the tension
rod and also serve to cover
the exposed thread.
To maintain the minimum
engagement depth, no threa-
ding must be visible after a
cap nut is screwed on!

CONNECTING SLEEVES
The m·connect sleeves are
used as connecting parts
between the tension rods if
the system length, e.g. above
12 m, is to be extended.
Through standardised design
with left-hand/right-hand threads,
they function as a turnbuckle
at the same time.
CONNECTING SLEEVES
WITH LUGS
The connecting sleeves can be
fitted with suspension lugs
for load-bearing in horizontally
arranged tension rod systems
(underbracing).

The compression resistance N given is calculated according to DIN EN 1993. The static resistance must be verified for each critical load
case. To verify static resistance the acting loads are multiplied by the partial safety factors or combination factors. Static resistance is given if
the values calculated in this manner do not exceed the compression resistance of the compression bar selected.

CONNECTION PLATES
The m·connect connecting
plates are required in frame
constructions as central junct-
ion points. In standard designs
three or four tension rods can
be attached.
To guarantee a secure load
distribution, only m·connect
connecting plates with the
material quality and dimensions
corresponding to calculations
should be implemented.
The direction of forces always
passes through the junction
point – an angle displacement
of 5 % is permissible.
For selection according to a
particular design the basic
shapes, e.g. rectangular or
circular, are offered as stan-
dard. Variants can however
be supplied.

STRUCTURAL ATTACHMENTS
As structural attachments,
connection lugs are required
with geometries and properties
which meet both building
requirements and the size
and nature of the loads given.
For safe load-bearing by the
tension rod or compression
strut systems, strict observ-
ance of the specifications
regarding material quality and
dimensions must be guarant-
eed. The exclusive use of
m·connect connection lugs is
recommended.
The specifications for welding
seams (p. 26) must also be
strictly followed.
As standard solutions, the
basic shapes for the most
important installation situa-
tions are suggested in our
catalog for selection accord-
ing to a particular design.
Variants can also be supp-
lied.

Further practical components
for steel construction
Apart from the connection
lugs, other practical connection
elements can be offered from
the MÜRMANN and LISEGA
product ranges.
Beam adapters Type L 76
With these beam adapters,
clamping joints are created
which, with the correspon-
ding pre-stressing, ensure
form-fitting at the contact sur-
faces and thereby high
security against displace-
ment due to lateral forces.

Material / corrosion protection (see Table, p. 24)
 
Beam clamps Type L 78
Beam clamps are flexible due
to their form of construction
and can be supplied in many
versions for all kinds of sup-
ports for practically any type
or size of beam.
Threaded clevises Type L 61
Threaded clevises are, in
combination with threaded
rods, an economical alterna-
tive to costly welded lug
designs for support bracing
and fixing.
Mconnect-folder-a4-eng.qxp 17.02.2010 15:52 Uhr Seite 20
Functionality and Safety
20
Finite element calculation and supplementary load tests
ensure the maximum degree of safety.
The system components fulfil
crucial load-bearing funct-
ions in the statics. The
demands on these compo-
nents regarding safety and
reliability are correspondingly
high.
DESIGN
In their design, ample safety
factors were considered. The
specifications are in full accor-
dance with current regulations
and have undergone expert
scrutiny by the Institute for
Structural Steel Engineering
at the University of Brunswick
and have been certified by
the German Institute of
Structural Engineering in
Berlin under the number
Z-14.4-441 of 12.01.2004
and comply with DIN 18800.
QUALITY ASSURANCE
The technical supervision and
manufacture of the system
components is carried out
at the MÜRMANN Gewinde-
technik (Thread Technology)
plant in line with the requi-
rements of certified quality
assurance according to DIN
EN ISO 9001. Suppliers are
also subject to the corre-
sponding certification and
approval.

Rational application
via modular system
At the conception of the
m·connect product program,
rational application stood at
the forefront together with
functionality and design:
simple engineering, simple
application and simple install-
ation.
A prerequisite was to con-
ceive the product range as a
modular system.
Standardised according to
uniform criteria, the individual
components are assembled
herein as modules. Through
strict classification as to
loads and connection geo-
metries, the components wit-
hin a load group are comp-
atible with regard to connect-
ions. They can consequently
be assembled at will to form
functional load chains. At the
same time the combination of
components of different load-
bearing capacity is excluded.
For projects, engineering can
be executed very easily and
safely using this catalog or,
even more conveniently, by
electronic means with our
CONNCAD
®
software program
(see p. 23).
As integrated elements in
suspension and support con-
structions, the m·connect-
load chains fulfil important
tasks in building structures.
The range of applications is
considerable and the multiple
combination possibilities of
individual components are
designed to fulfil almost all
practical demands.

Verification of static
resistance
For each critical load case,
the verification of static
resistance shall be determined:
Examples for typical load
cases:
- permanent loads
- permanent loads plus one
leading variable load
- permanent loads plus one
leading variable load and
other variable loads
For the verification of static
resistance, the acting loads
has to be multiplied with the
relevant partial factor resp.
factor of combination (s. DIN
EN 1990, Annex A1 resp.
national annexes).
The static resistance is given,
when the above calculated
values do not exceed the
tension resistance N
Rd
of the
selected thread size.

For surface protection against
corrosion, selection can be
made from the usual types
of corrosion protection:
Only materials meeting DIN,
DIN-EN standards or ASTM are
used. For load-bearing com-
ponents, only materials with
guaranteed strength values
are selected.

m·connect tension rod and
compression strut systems
are of crucial significance as
load-bearing components for
the load-bearing capacity of
the whole construction.
Observation of the following
instructions is a prerequisite
for trouble-free functioning.
If the components in the tensi-
on rod system are subse-
quently subjected to thermal
or mechanical treatment, the
building supervision certifica-
tion loses its validity.
1. Delivery condition
1.1.The m·connect tension rod
and compression strut
systems are preassembled
and supplied as ready-to-
install load chains with the
corresponding markings.
1.2.If connection lugs are
also supplied, they are
separately marked with the
installation position and tied
to the tension rod system
with binding wire.
1.3.To guarantee the given
load capacity of the connect-
ion lugs, the welding speci-
fications under Point 3 of these
instructions must be strictly
adhered to.
2. Packaging
2.1.Wooden laths are used
to protect the tension rod
systems from damage. The
delivery packages are wrap-
ped in foil as protection
against dust and dirt.
Wooden crates are used for
the delivery of individual
components.
2.2.On delivery the compo-
nents must be inspected for
transport damage and protec-
ted against moisture by storage
in closed rooms until assembly.
3. Welding procedure for
connection lugs
The following procedure is
recommended when welding
connection lugs:
3.1. The minimum welding
seam thickness (a) for
connection of the lug to a
supporting structure depends
on the shape of the
connection lug and the angle
of load distribution.
3.2. The “a” dimensions
according to lug type are
given in the table.
3.3. Connection lugs for ten-
sion rod systems M56x4
(corresponding to see thickn-
ess 35mm) must be
preheated to approx. 100°C.
3.4. Only approved welding
filler metals (Ü-stamp), prefe-
rably base electrodes (e.g.
EN499; E 42 5 B4 2 H5) are
permissible.
3.5. Vertical seams are only
to be welded using the
appropriate welding filler
metals (e.g. EN499: E38 0 RC
1 1).
3.6. Spot welds are to be
made with an intermediate
layer temperature  250°C.
3.7.Delays in welding are to
be avoided by the appropria-
te welding sequence (see
Fig. 1)
3.8. The connection lugs are
always to be welded all aro-
und.

4. Installation
The following procedure is to be followed when installing the
preassembled load chains:
4.1.Before installation it is advisable to check that the install-
ation dimensions correspond with the lengths delivered.
4.2.Loosen cap nuts, screwing them back a little.
4.3.Remove the circlips on the pins at the forked ends
and extract the pins.
4.4.Position the fork heads on the connection lugs and make
the pin connections. Sudden loading of the fork heads is not
permissible.
4.5. If length adjustment is required, it is only to be made by
rotating the tension rod; in this way the engagement depths
of the left-hand/right-hand thread are kept equal and the
maximum adjustment possibility is maintained.
4.6.For the proper functioning of the tension rod, the end
connection must be free of play. Therefore sufficient prestress
must be applied by rotation of the rod. It is recommended to
turn both ends at the same time.
4.7. To ensure minimum engagement depths, the tension rod
thread must be fully covered by the tightened cap nuts. If no
cap nuts are ordered, the visible thread length must not
exceed the catalog dimension L (p. 10) of the cap nut.
4.8.Tighten the cap nuts. The screw connections are supplied
with permanently elastic, silicon-free sealing material. If the
tension rod systems are to be used in the open, the gap
between cap nut and tension rod should be filled with a
suitable sealant.
