Load-bearing behaviour
from X-LAM and Glulam

Cross laminated timber elements or X-LAM elements can be considered as so-called compliantly connected cross-sections. Their load-bearing capacity and stiffness must be determined by considering the shear deformations of the transverse layers, also called rolling shear, and the load position.

Calculation of the load-bearing behaviour

The calculation of the load-bearing behaviour of cross laminated timber elements and X-LAM elements can be carried out with different methods: the so-called shear analogy, the γ-method or the Timoshenko beam theory.


Individual glulam

With our glued laminated timber (glulam), individual constructions can be built, because we produce the components in almost any shape and size – entirely according to your wishes. The kiln-dried wooden boards are joined together by finger-jointing to form long lamellas. Discover our wide range of glulam products.

X-LAM element construction

Whether roof, ceiling or wall – X-LAM can be used in a variety of ways. Our X-LAM element construction gives you great freedom in building design. The flexibly usable elements made of cross laminated timber are custom-made for you and can be assembled quickly and easily.
