The DIRAK-SNAP-Technology (DST)
In a world full of connections, we have developed a pioneering technology. With DIRAK-SNAP-Technology (DST) you can create high-strength connections easily, without the use of any tools – so that you can create the perfect solution, simply and securely.
With DIRAK-SNAP-Technology, it‘s easy to see the many possibilities it represents. By choosing the best solution for your application, you can discover the unique features of this pioneering technology – Explore the possibilities.
A well - engineered fastening technology ensures innovation and quality. DIRAK-SNAP-Technology combines flexibility, convenience, and securityin every application, without the need for tools. These products slideperfectly through the panel cutout and snap into position, creating astrong and secure connection. There is no possibility for loosening,shifting, or twisting. The DIRAK-SNAP-Technology is reliable, sophisticated, and the perfect solution for your application.
High strength and secure locking
Joining different types of materials
Rattle, vibration, and seismic - proof
The DIRAK-SNAP-Technology is able to withstand high load conditions and guarantees connection and pull-forces equal to traditional fastening solutions.
We have various DST products available for different types of materials, such as sheet metal, plastic, or wood for your individualapplication requirements. If necessary, reinforcement plates are available to increase strength and load capacity.
DST products are vibration-resistant and can withstand the heaviest strains without compromising their high-strength connections. Many of our DST products are tested according to DIN EN 61373 for vibration and shock and GR-63-CORE, Issue 4 for earthquakes.
Error - free and reliable assembly – even in hard to access applications
Tool - less and quick assembly
Secure and grounded
The DIRAK-SNAP-Technology ensures proper installation for your applications. The risk of assembly errors, such as improper torque specs are eliminated. An audible click confirms proper assembly which is helpful especially in hard to access applications.
DIRAK-SNAP-Technology products can be mounted in seconds without the use of any tools.
In addition to providing strong and secure connections, DIRAK-SNAP-Technology components offer safe and reliable electrical grounding with our grounding clips.
Safe and convenient removal
Many of the DST products are as easily disassembled as they are assembled. Depending on the individual product, this can be done with either standard or DIRAK specific tools. Components requiring specialized DIRAK tools are recommended in cases where vandalism or theft are concerns. But overall, our fasteners can be conveniently and easily removed for repairs and transportation.
The DIRAK-SNAP-Technology is based on the principle of a latch lock, like those in house doors or room doors. Two individual components form the basis: the so-called guide with chamfered clamping jaws as well as a spring, which is set in a window within the guide.
These SNAP elements are inserted into the guide channel of a body and are supported by a fixing plug.
If you now press these fasteners through an installation opening, the infeed chamfer of the clamping jaws pushes the SNAP element back in the guide channel like a trap. In the process, the spring is tensioned.
As soon as the height of the clamping jaws is overcome when inserting, the tensioned spring pushes the SNAP elements out of the guide channel again. This results in the typical “SNAP” sound.
The fastener is now jammed in the installation opening and keeps the elements to be joined in a high-strength connection.
