Massive Element

Massive elements are, as the name indicates elements that are produced from solid laminated timber. Building with massive elements is a good alternative to the more traditional building methods and is often described as building components of the future. The development of massive elements is a result of increasing concern for the environment together with high interest for the most natural building material - Wood. 

 

Wood has a positive effect on the indoor climate as well as on the environment.

Three different properties are considered in the evaluation of the strength of

glulam: bending, tension and compression strength. 

 

Tensile strength - The tensile strength is the necessary force to tear the beam. 

 

Compression strength - The pressure strength is the necessary force to crush the

beam 

 

Bending strength - The bending strength is the necessary force to break the

beam when it is bent
