Solid wood products

Überwachungsgemeinschaft Konstruktionsvollholz e.V.Überwachungsgemeinschaft Konstruktionsvollholz e.V.Modern solid wood products include sawn and planed timber which is used in different areas. Refined building materials such as solid construction timber, balcony glulam, glued-laminated timber and plywood boards also belong to this group.

Solid wood products are used particularly as supporting building elements in the construction area. They are also used in interior finishes, in outside areas and for garden purposes, as well as furniture production. Examples for other application areas include concrete formworks, and packaging for machinery and pallets. The construction segment mainly uses the European softwoods spruce, pine, fir, larch and Douglas fir. When it comes to interior finishes, European hardwoods such as beech, oak and maple are more commonly used.

Structural timber is produced from logs through cutting or profiling. Different forms of structural timber include slats, boards, planks and square timber. Possible finishing steps include drying, planing, chamfering and profiling. Structural timber can be used in variety of ways in timber construction and other construction methods.

One special variant of structural timber is MassivHolz (MH-Plus®-Si und MH-Fix®-Nsi). It is artificially dried and, as compared to normal structural timber, meets higher requirements with regard to wood moisture and cut type.

Überwachungsgemeinschaft Konstruktionsvollholz e.V.Überwachungsgemeinschaft Konstruktionsvollholz e.V.Solid construction timber (KVH®) is an artificially dried and wedge-galvanised solid wood beam. It is produced under quality-controlled conditions and, in comparison with conventional structural timber, also meets higher requirements for cut type and wood moisture. Solid construction timber is also characterised by very high form stability. It is suitable for all applications in modern residential timber construction and is available as KVH®-Si (for visible use) and KVH®-NSi (for hidden use).

Duo-/Trio-Balken®) is a refined solid wood product that features a very high degree of form stability and an attractive surface. It is produced under quality-controlled conditions from two or three artificially dried planks or square timber which are glued together on the parallel.

Glulam is a high-quality solid wood product that can be used as a high-stress and far-spanning building component, particularly for roof and hall structures. It forms an integral part of modern timber engineering. It is particularly stable, keeps its form and is visually attractive. Glulam is produced under quality-controlled conditions by gluing together at least three artificially dried and wedge-galvanised boards or board layers on the parallel.

Hüttemann Holz GmbH & Co. KGHüttemann Holz GmbH & Co. KGCross laminated timber (CLT) is a solid wood product used as supporting and bracing components in wall and roof structures. It consists of different layers of sawn timber which are glued in a crosswise manner.
