  • Load-bearing timber panel systems (465 KB)

    Detail 1+2/2018 – The research project currently being conducted by Timber Structures 3.0 AG and Timbatec in collaboration with BFH Biel, ETH Zurich and the Henkel Group company Purbond and Schillinger Holz is the topic of an article in "Detail", the Review of Architecture + Construction Details. The objective of the research project is the development of two-dimensional load-bearing wood panels and thus ceiling systems or entire skeleton structures made of wood. According to the article, the results to date have shown that it is possible to realise wood flat ceilings in a support grid up to 8 x 8 m in size and with a payload of 5 kN/m2. The ceiling system developed by TS3 is intended for use in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. The magazine from Munich further reports that the research project is intended to bring the technology to market maturity by 2019.
