Glued laminated log

Produced by Holz House USA

The construction of wooden houses is the oldest, most reliable and proven method of house building.

Wooden log has many positive qualities and has irreplaceable properties inherent only in this building material. Mankind has long tried to find a material that can become an alternative to the classic wooden beam.
Glued log is a noble material that conveys an atmosphere of respectability and prestige, emphasizing the status of wealthy residents.

Innovative technology has brought the construction using glued beams to a qualitatively new level, eliminating geometric instability while accelerating the process of building construction.
Buildings made of this material today can be considered the best offer on the market of premium housing construction.

Thus, there was a house made of glued laminated log. Nowadays, glued beams are widely used by many specialists in the construction of residential complexes. In addition, the unique qualities of this material made it possible to use glued beams in the construction of buildings for other purposes.

Environmental friendliness

Production and operation do not harm the environment. It is known that many building materials can cause allergic reactions, especially in children. Unlike other materials, glued wood is a natural and environmentally friendly product. A similar adhesive composition is used in the production of wooden tableware and children's furniture

Strength

Due to the drying and gluing technology, the log becomes an ideal building material that does not undergo deformation, practically gets rid of cracking, and keeps its shape and dimensions over time. This is due to the peculiarities of gluing individual lamellas and their subsequent pressing, which help to achieve maximum strength.

Minimum shrinkage

A house made of glued beams does not require time for "shrinkage" ("shrinkage" is on average 1%, 2%). This allows you to start finishing work immediately after the installation of walls and load-bearing structures, and you can build houses all year round.

Low thermal conductivity

The structure does not need wall insulation. The special design of the cup blocks the direct ingress of air between the crowns, and the presence of a "wind lock" allows you to almost completely eliminate the possibility of blowing.

High speed of construction

The construction time is incomparably shorter than the construction time of houses using other technologies. Installation of the 2700 sq ft (250 m2) Holz House USA glued log structure on a ready-made foundation takes
4 weeks

Material safety

Houses made of glued beams are not exposed to open gorenje! The log, burning on one side, practically does not heat up on the other. Special flame retardants" flame retardants " applied to the surface layer of wood, turn it into a difficult-to-ignite material with varying degrees of fire resistance.

How to choose a section of log for your future home?

For small homes up to 1 600 sq ft, in terms of the aesthetic perception of the facades. it is better to choose a bar of the "classic" section: 7.3 in (185 mm) high and 8 in(202 mm) wide. Parts with a height of 11 in (280 mm) min or a width of 10 in (242 mm) and 11 in (252 mm) in this case will look bulky. To save on the interior walls of the house, you can use a beam of a smaller thickness, for example, 6 in (152 mm), the capabilities of our products allow us to combine up to three different sections of the beam in one house.

For homes ranging from 1 600 sq ft to 3 280 sq ft, glued beams of almost any cross-section are suitable. classic 7.3 in (185 mm) x 8 in (202 mm) and high 11 in (280 mm) x 8 in (202 mm). Our company makes a cross-section line with a height of 10 in (250 mm). This is the "golden mean" for such houses. When building homes over 3 280 sq ft, the most commonly used log is 11 in (280 mm) high, the thickness of the aesthetic consideration is usually about 8 in (202 mm).
