TeknoWood applied three different wood construction techniques in its designs: Lo - Frame - CLT.
First of all, below you may find basic information about foundation preparations since the foundation structure is same in all three techniques:
The foundation is created as reinforced raft in all techniques. Inlet and outlet service ducts run through the foundation. However, wood foundation is applied on prefabricated bearing footings in areas where using reinforced concrete is impossible. In such a case, CLT panels are used as above foundation slab.
Joists are installed on marble or iroko curbs created on the foundation in the structures starting from the foundation in order to enable floor insulation and precise leveling. Structures are attached to foundation reinforcements with Halfen anchorages through the walls in application of all three techniques.
Also known as “Log Cabin” colloquially. TeknoWood Timber Log structures are prismatic glulam applications of known log cabins.
Structures of Timber Frame model are manufactured with load-bearing column and beam glulam profiles of walls and ceilings locked using slots facing each other. Load-bearing system and partition components appear as frames of floor & ceiling beams.
What is CLT?
CLT BBS is a multilayer wood construction material diagonally laminated (glued) to one another. Large dimensions are available by pressing the wood layers longitudinally and transversely using natural adhesives. Performance manifested by swelling and shrinkage of wood after CLT is created is reduced to an almost invisible level. Accordingly, wood is developed as a luxurious modern construction material and becomes a primary construction material.
CLT BBS composition has only 0.6% eco-friendly adhesive. Monoblock wood becomes a monolithic construction material having high load-bearing capacity and fireproof, sound and heat insulation properties. Allows for complete dry applications.
Buildings constructed using CLT have convenient and balanced climate in summers and winters. Humidity rate in CLT structure air is also regulated.
Thanks to CLT both design and applications are simplified. Physics of the buildings designed are easily calculated and applied, and thanks to easy testability, the structural, physical, and mechanical properties are easy to define in advance. Many designers consider using CLT as a great advantage. CLT eliminates the design complexity, and details and building inspections become are simplified.
CLT is now manufactured as a monoblock with 32 cm thickness, 3.5 m width, and 22 m length. It is prepared in alternative visual finishes particularly on the interior walls. Therefore, interior wall finishing materials and labor are no longer required in CLT structures. On the other hand, manufacturers preparing the panel joining edges free-of-charge as well as the discovery of robust fitting alternatives and easy applications made CLT economically more advantageous compared to all other alternatives.
TeknoWood CLT Application: TeknoWood started using CLT in floor and ceiling covering solutions of timber structures in particular ever since its establishment. However, due to latest developments and modifications, using CLT as wall and load-bearing component is now inevitable. TeknoWood’s difference in CLT applications stands out in edge joining design beyond the overall design.
Rigid screwing technique is still used for corner joints in many applications. TeknoWood CLT has developed TeknoWood Fix fitting allowing more robust and faster installation without compromising on corner joint flexibility. TeknoWood Fix fitting attachment is made of 304 Chromium, rustproof, and brings not only flexibility but also robustness to corner joints of structures in all aspects.
Wall to wall, wall to covering joints are easily fit in seconds thanks to TeknoWood Fix.
