Laminated timber - wood species

Why laminated timber

Individual lamellae (40 mm) are glued layer by layer from at least three broad-sided, fibre-parallel glued boards to obtain stable structural parts. To accomplish this, we use artificially dried and planed coniferous wood from spruce, pine and larch. The lamellae are longitudinally joined together with finger joints and then glued together to the requested height. Rigid joining between the individual wooden lamellae creates timber elements that have considerably better technical and static properties than solid wood.

Advantages of laminated timber

  • Exceptional rigidity and dimensional stability
  • High load-bearing capacity with low weight
  • High stability in case of fire
  • High-quality surface in the visible area
  • No torsions such as those that can occur with solid wood
  • Easy processing
  • Due to mechanical drying, no treatment with wood preservatives is necessary
