Production of GSA frameworks for the new Kost Holzbau AG workshop, Küssnacht am Rigi
The neue Holzbau AG is perfectly equipped for the industrial production of trusses made of softwood and hardwood. Sustainable building means building in a way that conserves resources. By dividing the cross-section into a framework, the building material can be used very efficiently. The timber in the framework is mainly subjected to tension and compression parallel to the grain (parallel to the grain, wood has significantly higher strengths and stiffnesses than across the grain). Compared to a solid timber beam, 40-50% material can be saved.
