Large spans, free shapes and a predictable fire resistance

Wooden components made of glued laminated timber (glulam) have three decisive advantages compared to steel and concrete components:
• Glulam structures have a high load bearing capacity with a low dead weight
• The burning behavior of glulam is calculable. Expensive fire protection paints are generally not necessary.
• Glulam can be manufactured and delivered in nearly any shape, free forms are not a problem. 

Wood is also resistant to chemically aggressive substances, so that for instance storage halls for fertilizers and salts are built almost exclusively with glulam components. 

The use of special glulam components also makes a positive contribution to our climate. Each cubic meter of wood reduces the CO2 emissions to the atmosphere by an average of 2 tonnes.
