Alumidi Connector – Post Base Detail

T-Rex Connector

A few months ago we were introduced to a new type of timber connector used in post and beam construction called a Alumidi Connector, by the team at Rothoblaas.   We instantly liked the simplicity of the connector as well as the ease of use and installation.

The Alumidi is a piece of anodized aluminum in the shape of a “T”.  One end gets screwed (in the case of this detail) with either a SKS or SKR concrete screws to the concrete, and the other end goes into a slot cut into the base of the post.  The post is then secured to the Alumidi Connector with 2-6  SBD Screws.
