Choosing a Connection
Features of mk Connection Technology
The mk profile system offers a wide range of connection
options and gives you ultimate flexibility
in designing your structure. You can select from a
variety of different connectors, each with their own
special features and advantages, for example angle
fasteners, internal fasteners, plate fasteners, corner
blocks, truss blocks and clamped connections.
With the mk profile system, you can create connections
at any angle. All connecting elements use
standard screws. Whatever your requirements, we
always have the perfect connection technology.
The connection used most frequently at mk is the
solid angle fastener. It is a simple and extremely
sturdy screw connection that can be used without
profile machining. For each angle we also offer a
complete assembly kit that contains the necessary
fastening accessories (screws, ribbed washers,
nuts/T-nuts) in the appropriate quantities.
Threads for inserting panelling elements can be
tapped into the angle’s lateral bores.
To create a conductive connection using angles,
simply use the nuts/T-nuts labelled with the ESD
symbol. It may be possible to adapt nuts not
labelled for ESD use; please contact us.
In addition to angle fasteners, we also offer a range
of other connectors. The matrix below will give you
a brief overview of which connectors are suitable
for your requirements. If you need exact data about
load capacity, where are happy to provide these on
Angles can also be mounted or removed later and
allow profiles from various series or other components
to be connected to each other. Angles with
a key prevent undesired twisting and provide a
perfectly aligned connection.
