Laminated timber is impermeable to moisture ingress and pollution.
Our laminated timber posts provide excellent strength and dimensional stability.
These posts have capped tops and are anchored into galvanised steel stirrups, which further protects the timber ends from direct contact with water.
This subsequently lowers the quantity of active agents needed for timber treatment, thus reducing the impact on the environment.
Laminated timber is made of strips of solid timber (pine or Scots pine) that are glued together.
It is a highly resistant material.
This makes it ideal for upright elements that must bear heavy loads.
It is a dimensionally stable material, which maintains a constant thickness even over time and in the face of climatic variations.
Its impermeability to moisture and pollution reduces maintenance costs and guarantees structural durability.
This is further reinforced by:
- Autoclave treatment of the laminated timber that provides thorough protection against attacks by fungi, insects and termites.
- A wood stain treatment that waterproofs the wood and protects it against UV light.
It is suitable for complex shapes: curved, rounded, square.
The timber is free of defects (pits or splits) as these are identified and then sawn off the strips prior to their use.
There are no splinters, so there is no risk of injury and the timber feels pleasant to touch.
WHAT ABOUT THE PLANET?
A reduced impact on the environment thanks to:
. the use of timber from sustainably managed forests according to the PEFC standard.
. 100% of the timber is recyclable.
. the use of low-concentration timber treatment products.
