A Natural Substitute to Concrete/The Concrete from Nature
Cross – like in veneer, the timber planks consisting of panels are joined together at perpendicular angles to withstand cross, parallel, as well as compressive stress.
Laminated – the 60 mm-thick panel consists of three layers of timber planks. More layers can be added to improve strength or insulation properties. The planks are made of timber boards pressed and glued together using a formaldehyde-free adhesive.
Timber – the panels are usually made of spruce. The outer finishing can be made of extremely durable Siberian Larch.
