Slab formation in timber construction

Slab formation in timber construction is used to stiffen structures. Here, the ceiling slabs are designed as shear-resistant discs to give the building the necessary stability. This is the only way to absorb and dissipate the forces acting on the building.

Slab formation for
ceiling panels made of glulam elements

The formation of the ceiling panels as a shear-resistant slab in ceilings made of cross laminated timber elements is usually done by bridging the joints between the elements. Depending on the load level, the elements can be connected with milled joint cover strips (e.g. OSB strips), stepped rebate or crossed fully threaded screws.


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.
