KLH® solid wood panels are ideally suited for load-bearing and non-load-bearing walls, shear walls for lateral load resistance, floor, and roof elements.
The crossways arrangement of the longitudinal and transverse laminations reduces the swelling and shrinkage in the plane to an insignificant minimum and static strength and shape retention increase considerably. Lumber used is dried to a maximum moisture content of 12% (+/-2%), and all individual boards must pass strict quality control checks before use.
Only very low VOC and formaldehyde-free PUR adhesives are used. Adhesives used are compliant with the heat resistance provisions of PRG 320-2018 or later.
Adhesive is applied automatically over the entire surface at approximately 0.031 psf per joint. A laminating pressure of over 12,500 psf is used during the manufacture of KLH® solid timber panels, 6 times higher than vacuum press technology. The result is a high quality structural member.
CNC - Cutting
Factory cutting takes place using state-of-the-art CNC-technology, based on approved drawings released by the project design team. Typical tolerances are +/-2mm for standard panel types, standard trimming, and a wood moisture content of 12%.
We also produce and deliver unmachined raw panels to supply third party CNC machining services, which then takes responsibility to transport the elements to the job site.
Please contact us for further information.
We offer the possibility of a variety of lifting systems and hardware, depending on the panel type, panel size and surface quality, and can assist the design/construction team in selecting the best option for a particular application.
