HOW IT IS MADE (Timber frame)

GLT glulam

Glued laminated Timber is a versatile engineered wood that is frequently specified for its strength, beauty, and reliability. The material is made up of several layers of structural Timber that have been bonded together using adhesives in order to form a bigger, potentially enormous piece of wood. Building advancements using this material have drastically changed the scale of what is architecturally possible using Timber.

Glulam is manufactured as a standard product or according to a list with the desired length up to 39ft, dimension up to 24″, high strength class, and different surface quality. Through the sustainable development of the production site in recent years, the yield and the quality in combination with smart IT and software solutions, the production site has geared up for cost and technology competitive solutions in the laminated timber industry.

Advantages

GLT consists of at least three lamella boards that are glued along the fiber. A high carrying capacity is reached compared to common construction timber by virtue of the firmness sorting and homogenization of the lamella boards. We use lamella 42 mm standard thickness. High carrying capacity, dimensional stability, product diversity, and the best surface quality enable diverse possibilities for the construction field.

  • Hight carrying capacity
  • Dimensional stability
  • Short construction periods
  • Low weight
  • High surface quality
  • A high degree of pre-fabrication
  • Wide range of shapes
  • Small component dimensions with high strengths
  • Architectural and constructional versatility

Production

The GLT product line includes complete production lines for lumber edge gluing and laminating, glulam beam laminating, finger joint gluing, and panel or scarf gluing.

Finished beam lengths are limited only by transport restrictions up to 39ft. Standard equipment designs produce finished beam widths to 10″ (240 mm) and heights to 24″ (600 mm) or can be custom designed if required for larger beam output.

  • Includes automatic pre-layup and press charging systems 
  • Includes package chains and unstacker 
  • Includes beam planer and trim saw 
  • Includes adjustable camber capability 
  • Beam handling system and lots of other equipment

 

 

Our plant is constantly evolving. We regularly update production equipment to constantly improve the quality of our houses. We work with the best architects to give comfort and a new quality of life to everyone who loves and appreciates timber housing, understands its beauty and wants to be closer to nature.

CERTIFICATES

The process chain is certified according to the highest European standards. The company has a strict quality control system. Sorting wood by quality is performed in automatic mode. This completely eliminates wood with large knots and other defects.

  • BM TRADA certificate for confirmation of compliance with EN 14081:2005+A1:2011 No. 1224-CPD-0258 Structural sawn timber with rectangular cross-section, sorted by strength C16-C30, TR 26. Machine sorting. Marking
  • MPA Stuttgart – Otto-Graf-Institut (FMPA) certificate of conformity of products (glued structural beams) with European standard DIN EN-14080-2013 № 0672-CPR-0633
  • The company has an FSC certificate (code NC-COC-014254, NC-CW-014254, license code FSC-C003513). Certification of the production chain from logging to finished products in accordance with Forest Stewardship Council ® standards.
  • Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) – Environmental Product Declaration, which contains the results of the product life cycle assessment (LCA), a report on the composition and environmental characteristics of the product.

Eco-friendly material is a material that does not harm the environment or humans throughout the entire life cycle: from the extraction of raw materials and its transportation, the manufacture of the final product, operation and other processes up to disposal.

Note: Due to differences in personal preferences and requirements, the following items are not included in our packages: foundation, basement support post, any masonry items, plumbing and heating materials, electrical materials, kitchen cabinets or countertops, finish flooring, stains or finishes, roof insulation for log packages, nails, and miscellaneous items, such as flashing and vents.
