This technology provides great opportunities for creating a variety of architectural and planning solutions, high operational quality and maintainability.
The obvious advantages of glued beams are its aesthetic qualities, strength, the property of preserving geometry with humidity changes, respectively, minimal shrinkage.
In comparison with solid wood beams, glued beams have significantly less internal pressure. All shrinkage and pressure relief processes (leading to curvature and cracks) take place in factory conditions. Glued beam consists of lamellae - boards dried to a humidity not exceeding 10%, planed and glued together. Before gluing, the lamellas undergo quality control, in which all defects are removed - chips, cracks, rotten knots, wane or damaged edges. The result is a finished detail that is not subject to deformation and cracking.
