Fire resistance

Glue laminated timber's controlled burning and char formation allow effective fire design techniques, even with large sections, enabling restoration after fire incidents.


Glulam beams outperform steel and concrete in strength-to-weight ratio, enabling longer spans with minimal support, resulting in cost-efficient foundations.

Transport & Delivery


Components with a maximum length of 13,60 m can be transported in open or closed lorries without any problems. The lorries are loaded in our factories with a side loading fork lift. If unloading by crane is required, this should be agreed in advance with our sales or logistical department. Direct deliveries to a construction site are possible following agreement with our logistics representative.

Our factory in Zavidovici, BiH have a rail connection. Depending on the destination, transport by rail freight may be an economic alternative. Due to glulam's light weight, the transportation costs are much lower than those for steel and concrete.

Due to national and international traffic rules and regulations, components that exceed 13,60 m in length, 2,40 m in width or 2,60 m in height require special transportation that is subject to approval. Our sales and logistics representative are experienced in this sector and always endeavor to find the optimum solution. In order to quote the exact beam dimensions are required. Special transportation must be requested on an individual basis and requires a longer lead- time in the quotation phase than standard transport.

When transported by rail freight the maximum length is up to 48 m, by truck maximum lenght is up to 37 m.


Glulam is normally wrapped in plastic to keep it clean and dry during transport and while it sits on site before erection.


Glulam structures can be erected fast and simple, every unit is marked as in project documentation. The parts are assembled by nailing, screwing or bolting, unaffected by the time of year or the weather, and any adjustments can be made with simple hand tools. Glulam elements are connected with steal plates, steal rings and screws for wood. For larger projects assembly is done with the help of crane and scaffold.

A glulam frame can carry its full load immediately after the assembly. It is a well-tested building material which, correctly used, has extremely good durability.

Numerous objects that we have built, over decades, are the best proof of our extraordinary technology and expert work force that can face even the biggest challenges which wood constructions can set before them.

Let’s embark on a journey to create a space that reflects your unique style and needs.
