Installation

Installation of Keystone’s T/K, HDT/K and XHDT/K are all similar.
All Timber frame lintels must be installed with restraining clips and a timber pinch batten to prevent rotation of the lintel during the building stage. Propping may be used to facilitate speed of construction.

To achieve the loading figures shown, the T/K lintel must be secured with restraining clips and a timber pinch batten (not supplied) must be used to prevent lateral deflection (rotation) during the building stage. A single timber pinch batten 300mm long at mid span will be sufficient.

Keystone timber frame restraint clips are supplied free of charge and must be fixed to the timber frame structure by 3.3mm x 50mm galvanised nails. Allowance should be made for the movement of the timber frame structure due to settlement and shrinkage. Lateral restraint clip should be placed at 500mm centres each side of mid span.
