Butt joint bonding of timber


 The engineers at Timbatec managed to glue timber on the face side. This opens up a whole new world of structural and design-related options that was previously inaccessible to timber constructions

 

Bonding of beams


 Gluing cross-laminated timber to form beams of any length

 

Bonding of slabs


 Gluing cross-laminated timber to form slim slabs of any size

 

Column heads


 Highly stable column heads with breaking loads from 1,100 to 3,100 kN (110 to 310 tonnes)

 

Floor slabs


 Connecting column heads to ceiling elements to create slim floor slabs

 

Frame construction


 These new technologies make it possible to construct multiaxial-bearing slim slabs for structural timber elements

 

High-rise buildings


 The new technologies put the construction of high-rise timber buildings within reach. The structural elements may need to be encapsulated, i.e. clad, with plasterboard depending on national regulations

 

Shear walls without slippage


 It is now possible to calculate bracing walls as an entire surface with cut-outs. This reduces flexibility and increases rigidity, e.g. for seismic loads

 

Simple V-structures


 Angled surfaces can also be bonded. This makes it possible to form simple V-structures, for instance

 

Complex folded plates


 Unfolding makes it possible to create complex folded plates

 

Bridge construction


 Tiled slab box used in bridge construction

 

Pipe-shaped modules


 Box modules open at the face side for hotel rooms

 

Buildings made of curved construction elements


 Curved construction elements can also be bonded, e.g. for troughs, salt silos, masts for wind farms and similar.

 

3D shell structures


 Biaxially curved shells can be used to construct 3-dimensional shell structures

 

Free forms


 Free forms are now also possible

 

Creativity


 Are you still constructing instead of creating?
