Products

GLULAM

Our laminated timber structures are made of softwood, originating from sustainably managed northern forests.
Modern production techniques and stringent quality guarantee specific product features and make the laminated wood into a full, competitive, durable and aesthetic building material.
Our products are certified FSC and/or PEFC, CE, ATG and KOMO.

Characteristics

  • Timber: originating from sustainably managed northern forests: spruce, pine or larch
  • Strength grades: GL24h and GL28h
  • Bonding: MUF glue
  • Calculations: according Eurocode 5 (part 1 and part 2)

  • Standard thicknesses: 22mm - 34mm - 45mm
  • Maximum length: 42m (transport)
  • Maximum height: 220cm

Properties

  • Natural and renewable timber product, produced in a energy friendly production process and thus very positive impact on reduction of CO² emissions

  • Standard thicknesses: between 60mm and 300mm
  • Maximum length: 16m
  • Maximum height: 3.5m

Properties

  • Natural and renewable timber product, produced in a energy friendly production process and thus very positive impact on reduction of CO² emissions
  • Solid built-up assures strenght and stability, including for seismic regions
  • Air- and wind tightness is assured by the cross laminated production method of the panels and requires lesser finising steps during the construction in general
  • Contributes to thermal efficiency with a thermal conductivity of 0.13 W/mK
  • Acoustic solutions avoid creeping floors, air- and contact sounds
  • Allows mostly thinner construction = more interior surface m² or more space for additional insulation
  • Different surface finishings are possible
  • Lightweight and dry building method
  • Excellent fire resistance properties
  • Highy suitable for high-rise construction
  • The elements are ready-to-use with rebates, exact window and door cut-out-openings, moulded chases and holes, in one word completely joined, are delivered directly to the building site

KIELSTEG

Kielsteg is a new type of wooden structural element. It uses strips of spruce timber to form top and bottom flanges, which are connected by webs of plywood or OSB.
Kielsteg is manufactured in a fully industrial process and has outstanding structural properties.
The design places the material exactly where it is needed for loadbearing performance, resulting in an exceptionally high strength-to-weight ratio.
Special manufacturing technology and the choice of materials give Kielsteg elements excellent scalability.
The result is a highly economical construction element made from the renewable resource wood

Characteristics

  • Application: structural floor- and roof-constructions
  • Construction type: sandwich type with wooden timber flanges (spruce) and intermediate webs in OSB or Plywood
  • Surface: industry quality / visual quality, planed and untreated
  • Element: straight or with a predefined camber
  • Element width: 1.200mm, assembly width: 1.165mm
  • Height: 228 - 280 - 380 - 485 - 560 - 615 - 730 - 800mm
  • Length: 5.00m - 27.00m
  • Fire resistance: REI 30 - REI 60 are possible
  • Longitudinal edge: profiled with joints
  • Service Class: service classes 1 and 2
  • Bonding: MUF glue
  • Wood moisture content: wood moister content in use 12% ± 3%
  • Change in the width: longitudinal: 0.01% per % wood moisture content
  • Lateral: 0.25% per % wood moisture content

Properties

  • Economical solution for clear spans from 5m - 27m
  • Increased flexibility of use of the enclosed space due to support-free spans
  • Kielsteg elements are also manufactured with predefined camber
  • Good for cantilevered roof constructions of up to 10m
  • Scalability is ensured by an innovative manufacturing process
  • Lightweight
  • Very rapid installation time

Korlam wins TTJ Award 'Achievement in Engineered Timber'.

About 420 guests from across the UK timber trade gathered at the Brewery in London for the annual TTJ Awards. We are very proud to announce Korlam has won this year's TTJ Award 'Achievement in Engineered Timber'. Full coverage will appear also in the next issue of TTJ.

Kielsteg is a system of flat wooden structural elements intended for use as load-bearing roofs and structural floors. The technology is not in competition with the other established glued wood products Korlam manufactures such as glulam or CLT, but it expands the spectrum of possibilities of building with wood.

Buildinx to build again tallest CLT building.

  • Currently Buildinx is erecting a 6 storey CLT accomodation for students in Namur (B).

  • After experience with CLT buildinngs of 4 and 5 storeys in Belgium and the Netherlands we reconfirm our CLT market leading role for the project market/development.

  • In cooperation with Ney&Partners - structural engineering Brussels.

BIM-ready.

  • As innovative manufacturer of glulam and CLT, both Korlam and Lamcol are working already with CADWORK 3D modelling software.
  • Recently we have expanded our software with IFC in order to meet latest engineering technologies of Building Information Modeling (BIM).

Production

The production of our glulam beams and CLT meets most modern and most stringent quality requirements.

Our production includes:

  • CNC production process
  • high size accuracy
  • a continuous and controlled environment

For the glulam beams we are able to deliver all installation accessories such as steel fixation plates, bracing, ...
According request we produce glulam beams suitable for visible, semi-visible or unvisible fixation of the steel plates.
For long-term durability purposes our glulam beams are finished with a 'pale oke' varnish.
In CLT different surface qualities are possible according the desired further cladding of the panels and all routing is done in the factory.
This ensures a very fast and easy construction time on site.

Transport

The delivery of glulam beams up to 42m and large CLT panels takes special preparation.
We have proven experience in transport preparation, -methods and on-site handling.
Our logistic service is able to provide a variety of transport solutions including deliveries by land with standard or exceptional trucks or by sea (container loading).
For special projects a custom made solution can be discussed.
