Beautex is a quality curator of premium global brands in doors and windows, flooring and cladding. This is a niche category, making it possible to live luxury to the fullest. Quality and design competence have characterized the Beautex product world for many years and will be a reliable foundation for the future. Continuing its legacy of adding new and innovative products to its kitty, Beautex now introduces a new concept of Glulam Timber Facades..Lets have a look at it in detail..
Natural design with sustainable material
Facades form the external appearance of the building and transport the architectural concept to the outside. Timber as a material offers a variety of design options in terms of materiality and shape without having to renounce the aspect of sustainability.
Timber is becoming increasingly attractive in the city and is, in time of global warning, a major possibility to store CO2. With a timber facade, new buildings can represent an image of sustainability and saving resources. To realise durable structures, we consider the rules of constructional timber protection or recourse to innovative products.
Wood as a material offers a special quality for the external representation. Besides the aesthetic ageing, wood has a wide scope of design, especially in urban areas.
New dimensions in Timber
The achievement of the glulam production has revolutionised the timber industry and laid the foundations for modern timber engineering. As an industrially produced and standardized product, it is particularly well suited for load-bearing structures with large spans. The individual bonded, technically dried boards are usually made of softwood, but other types of wood are used more and more due to the necessary changes in sustainable forestry.
The higher carrying capacity compared to conventional timber and the variable dimensions with girder lengths of over 45 meters make glulam a powerful material. Efficient curved or components with variable cross-section can be produced. In addition to the single axis of curvature, it is also possible to manufacture spatially curved components.When planning glulam constructions all calculations and details are carried our according to the current Eurocode 5 and all the advantages of the material are considered so that timber construction projects can be implemented aesthetically and economically.
