Efficiently calculate nail plate systems

BeA nail plates and ARCTEC - A strong team

The ARCTEC calculation software guarantees the maximum utilisation of the structural performance of the nail plates and the wooden cross sections - always according to Eurocode 5 and national annexes. This reduces the variety of the raw material and increases your stock and customisation capabilities..

In addition, ARCTEC’s broad performance capability allows very individual and complex support for structures ranging from detached houses to large buildings with a 35 metre span.

The simple user guide, the visual representation and the display of the relevant calculation parameters simplify the construction of roof trusses. A library of the most frequently used truss constructions saves time during the design phase.

ARCTEC displays your nail plate design in various 3D perspectives, creates auditable structural calculations and prints cutting lists, manufacturing and assembly drawings according to your wishes. The CAD data can be exported directly to the joinery machine and the press, thus reducing errors and optimising your manufacturing capacity.

We are continuously developing ARCTEC further so that you will always have the optimum program available.
