CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER 

CLT: WHEN TIMBER MEETS TECHNOLOGY

In recent years the world has seen plenty of innovation and development in the field of construction with engineered wood: quick to install and extremely versatile.

Glue laminated timber (Glulam), Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), Nail Laminated Timber (NLT) and Dowel Laminated Timber (DLT) make their way into commercial construction and urban development projects.

Rothoblaas believed in this development from an early stage on and has invested into innovative solutions to support the industry's growth and to make ever more ambitious projects ever simpler.

HANDBOOK FOR CLT BUILDINGS

In the handbook for CLT Buildings, Rothoblaas summarized its most important products.

The chapters of the handbook follow the building process on the construction site, by explaining the special requirements and considerations of building with wood from the ground anchoring to the roof structure.

Get inspired! The Handbook provides only a comprehensive view of mass timber buildings, not a complete one. For more details, more products, more technical data, please see the dedicated cataloges.

FASTENING

SCREWS, CONNECTORS AND BRACKETS FOR TIMBER BUILDINGS

For Rothoblaas each detail must be matched with its proper connector: fixing and connection solutions satisfy the most complex system, tailored to specific needs thanks to professional technical consultancies.

Specific and appropriate resolutions are suitable from the small simple structure to imposing multi-storey buildings whether a resistant cladding or durable outside space is being designed.

AIRTIGHTNESS AND WATERPROOFING

PREVENT INCONVENIENT INFILTRATIONS

The living comfort is mostly granted by an efficient  airtightness of the building: a valuable casing limits the loss of internal warmth during the winter  and prevents interstitial condensation.

The right choice of roofing membranes and adhesive tapes  is not only crucial for the operativity of the building envelope but also promotes an improved thermo-hygrometric regulation of the structure. 

SOUNDPROOFING

REDUCE NOISE. IMPROVE LIVING COMFORT

Rothoblaas qualifies the acoustic well-being with a comfortable silence and therefore not corrupted from troublesome noises.

Being wood an extremely light material, it is yet very susceptible to sound transmission but at the same time also easily correctable by choosing the right product application

ROTHOBLAAS STANDS FOR CONTINUOUS INNOVATION

X-RAD: THE FUTURE OF TIMBER BUILDING

The innovative nature of X-RAD creates a revolution in the standards  of the wood construction industry thanks to the advantages  that it offers: high precision, reduction of construction times, greater  on-site safety, reduction in the number of assembly components,  excellent static performance.

Standardization and the reduction of the overall number of joints make the X-RAD system a winning player when the reduction of construction time is a key factor for a project.  

SPIDER: ADD STRENGHT TO YOUR TIMBER STRUCTURES

With the SPIDER connector punctual supported CLT  flat slabs with a span length of more than 5 m can be  realized without any binding beams.

The system generally has two functions: reinforcement in the area  of the support and suspension of the CLT flat slab by means of radial arms and fully threaded screws. 

Furthermore, it transmits the vertical load of the support  from the top of the building to the ground floor  without stressing the CLT perpendicular to the grain.
