ROOCO® Column Shoes are construction products that create cost-effective and moment-resisting connections between timber columns and foundations or between timber columns.
The column connection is made using column shoes and glued-in rods. Rods are glued inside a timber column bottom, and column shoes are attached to the bars with nuts. At the top of the timber column, rods are glued inside to facilitate a connection with another column. For connection with the foundation, anchor bolts are cast into the foundation.
Comprehensive product information like resistances, required supplementary reinforcement, concrete grades, limitations of use etc. can be found within the Technical Manual. Product details may be country-specific. For design, always use product information that is localized for design's destination country. Country specific Technical Manuals can be found under Documents page, or from website of the country in question.
We have created 2D and 3D detailing components for designers, including several 2D blocks, 3D custom components and connection plugins for different modelling applications. Choose the tools for your design software!
