This blog from Rothoblaas gives insight into the versatility of NINO - the universal angle bracket for shear and tensile forces of small dimensions and high performance.

Designed for shear or tensile timber-to-concrete and timber-to-timber joints, NINO is the perfect angle bracket for many applications: solid timber, glulam, CLT and LVL, timber frame structures and timber-based panels.
The certified strength values according to ETA-22/0089 for forces in all directions allow multiple configurations for both CLT and timber frame walls.

As a result of its versatility, NINO is able to solve unforeseen situations such as an installation raised from the wall installed on bedding mortar or root beam or in the presence of a plasterboard counter wall.
Here are three situations where NINO's versatility is surprising for its performance and savings in terms of time and money:

SLAB - KERB – WALL
For kerb heights up to 12 cm, the application of NINO guarantees the perfect transfer of forces thanks to the strength values provided by Rothoblaas and available to all professionals. On concrete, the additional WASHER provides surprising strengths.

TIMBER-TO-TIMBER
NINO is designed for fastening timber-to-timber configurations in the traditional way (with nails or plate screws) but also for connections with full thread screws that are capable of unimaginable strengths.
The XYLOFON PLATE resilient profile coupling, certified by ETA with exceptional strengths, reduces acoustic bridges due to connections.
 
FLOOR or FALSE CEILING
Because of its small dimensions, the NINO 15080 version can be integrated into the ceiling or false ceiling package. It does not protrude and is also a perfect solution from an aesthetic point of view.
