Usual beam spacing (other dimensions possible) 5 – 7 m
Beam width (2 cm preferred dimensions each) 8 – 24 cm
Cantilevers possible
Height of components (for structural design) h= l/16 to l/20
Possible fire resistance classes R 30 > without problems
R 60 > with additional costs
Strength classes GL 24h/c, GL 28c, GL 30c
