HESS OAK

NOBLE. SOLID. APPEALING.

Oak is sturdy, solid and besides looks very classy and pretty appealing. It convinces due to its visual and mechanical properties. People love this type of wood. Oak is the most popular timber species for flooring and furniture production both in Europe and in the USA!

Glued-laminated timber made from oak wood can also be used in the building sector. If you want to use oak wood as load-bearing element or to put static load on those beams an individual case approval might be necessary. We will gladly advice you in this respect!

An alternative product we have on offer for you is  HESS HYBRID. There is no special approval required for HESS HYBRID. And the reason for this is: The core is made from an approved type of wood (such as spruce). The outer oak layer is not taken into consideration for the static calculation. This is of almost no effect because the lamination of the layer only has a thickness of approx. 10 mm. 

 

 

HESS BEECH

The filigree and visually appealing solution.

Due to the high solidity values of beech wood as opposed to coniferous timber it is possible to realise filigree bearing structures from beech wood. Moreover, the surfaces obtained with this deciduous timber stand out for their high-grade and smooth appearance. You are surely familiar with the typical beech "look" from the furniture sector.

  • slim and filigree bearing structures can be realised
  • connector details are also more compact, as the distances of the fasteners are smaller with beech wood
  • During the assembly and of course also after the installation glulam timber made from beech wood has to be protected against humidity
