New Clamex S-20 connector from Lamello - flexible, affordable & quick to use

The Clamex S-20 connector will be available in the UK from 4 September

For those looking to create precise and near-invisible furniture joints quickly and easily into material as thin as 8mm, Lamello has the answer with its brand-new Clamex S-20 connector.

Opening up new dimensions in wood joining technology

Launched at the interzum and LIGNA 2023 international trade fairs, the Clamex S-20 is a detachable furniture connector that's based on the universally recognised 4mm installation principle. With its thin design and strong joining force, the connector opens up completely new dimensions in wood joining technology.

Shaye Chatfield, Lamello UK’s Sales Manager, says: “Like every Clamex connector from Lamello, the S-20 is detachable and connected to the counterpart with a rotating lever, which can be opened time and again. Using a biscuit jointer, the connector halves are anchored into the groove with two screws to ensure a strong hold, while the small 6mm access opening for opening and closing the connector offers a discreet finish on corner, surface or frame connections."

Shaye continues: “While the existing Clamex S-18 connector requires an 8mm cut to insert the fitting, the new Clamex S-20 has been designed to work with a universal 4mm cut, thus making it even more versatile and quicker to use.

"Mitre joints are now possible on materials as thin as 14mm thick and butt joints with installation into the edges can measure as little as 8mm thick. The S-20 can also be used for angle connections from 30-180° and to make life even simpler, the system comes with its own drilling jig for precise positioning.

“What’s more, the Clamex S-20 isn’t limited for use on a specific biscuit jointer; rather, it's suitable for use on any biscuit jointing machine with a 4mm blade, not just Lamello’s Classic X or Top 21.

"This makes it an affordable and flexible option for those working on site without an existing Lamello jointer, or hobbyists and DIY enthusiasts yet to invest in Lamello’s P-System, but still wanting a strong and accurate solution to creating connections at all angles without the need for adhesives.”
