  • An architectural roof truss

    Architectural Roof Trusses

    Architectural timber roof trusses create strong visual impact. Often used as part of ‘cathedral ceiling’ systems, timber can be specified light or heavy to suit the chosen theme and style. On finish, they can be left natural or may be oiled, stained, painted or highly decorated. Choice is limited only by individual style and design preferences.
  • Timber framing offers design flexibility and efficiency

    Framing

    Since people began building simple shelters, wooden framing has played an important role in shaping structures of many kinds. One of the most popular types of wooden framing is known as lightweight timber construction.

    Packaging

    From pallets to customised packaging solutions, timber is a highly flexible, efficient packaging material that delivers value, performance and environmental benefits. As industrial packaging usually uses lower grades of timber, it also optimises log utilisation.
  • Shear walls and diaphragms

    Shear walls

    Lateral loads such as wind or earthquake on framed timber buildings - either post and beam or stud and joist - need to be resisted and shear walls and diaphragms offer an effective and economical solution.
  • A section of a structural insulated panel (SIPS)

    Structural Insulated Panel Systems (SIPS)

    With a growing emphasis in the residential and architectural construction industry on alternative eco-friendly, versatile and economical building materials - Structural Insulated Panel Systems (SIPS) are one such example. Comprising two timber panels of Oriented Strand Board (OSB) and an internal layer of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), the favourable insulating and acoustic properties of the material combined with the fast construction and site-adaptability make SIPS an attractive alternative to standard timber stud walls and also for use in roofs and floors
  • The Svarmisk interior is characterised by the use of timber in many forms, including rustic structural poles

    Structural Timber Poles

    Timber poles are utilised in structural construction to provide support for gravity loads and resistance against lateral forces. Not only serving a structural function, timber poles provide many aesthetic benefits, with their use in construction often complementing architectural designs aimed at harmonisation with the natural environment.

    Temporary Structures

    Wood has an important role providing temporary structural support during the building process. Common wooden temporary structures include formwork and scaffolding.
  • Timber Portal Frames

    Timber Portal Frames

    For buildings that require large spans and column free interiors, timber portal frames provide one of the most aesthetically pleasing solutions. Utilising modern engineering technology, portal frame design transforms timber into a highly effective, efficient and economical structural product. This application guide provides a comprehensive overview of the process of using timber in the specification, fabrication and erection of portal frame structures.
