Salt storage hall Stassfurt

Stassfurt, Germany


The city of Stassfurt in Sachsen-Anhalt in Germany has been known for salt deposits since the monarchy. This has continued to this day. A new wooden structure for the roof of the salt storage was built for Ciech Salz Deutschland GmbH. The 15 frame axes each consist of two special glued laminated timber beams - a total of 145 m³ - with a joint at the ridge. Two wall constructions were created from 48m2 of straight glulam. The roof construction had to be stiffened with 260 m³ HASSLACHER CLT 1250, which also had to be specially tied due to the rounded shape of the roof. In this project, the corrosion resistance of the pre-assembled steel parts as well as the ridge height of 23 m for the assembly posed very special challenges, which were overcome to the satisfaction of the customer.
