        GLT® - Girder Longitudinally Tensiletested

        Only the best can stand the test!

        Safety step 1

        Quality grading

        Specially selected and certified sawn timber is produced, kiln-dried and pre-graded by our specialists at the company’s own sawing works.

        Safety step 2

        High-tech strength grading

        The latest X-ray and laser technology enables the uncompromising recognition and elimination of strength-related deficiencies in the wood.

        Safety step 3

        Patented tensile testing

        Usually the strength of supporting components is only monitored based on random sampling – that is not the case with GLT®. Each GLT® beam is subject to the patented tensile proof loading process over the whole length of the beam in accordance with ÖNORM B 4125 and therefore comprehensive quality assurance is ensured.
