Application

Column and beam systems for domestic and large commercial buildings; Timber/ concrete composite (TCC) floors; Laminated timber panels (LTP).

Description

Glued, laminated, high-strength timber members.

Features and benefits:

  • Manufactured using Australian-grown timber.
  • High strength-to-weight ratio: capable of longer spans than comparable products, allows for higher ceilings, increased floor space and lesser beam depth.
  • Lower associated costs then concrete and steel.
  • Sustainable material.

Application:

Column and beam systems for domestic and large commercial buildings; Timber/ concrete composite (TCC) floors; Laminated timber panels (LTP).
