CHALETS MADE OF GLUE LAM LOGS

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

 

Glue Lam Log stabilizes wood. GLL keeps its shape, has no cracks, no twists

and prevents air and water infiltration, and at the same time have been able to

recreate the genuine appearence of the original wood architecture, in addition

to meeting today's requirements in terms of comfort, energy saving and durability.

GLL has the advantages of wood, without its disadvantages. GLL is a perfectly

suited material for chalet building.

 

WHAT ARE THE COMPONENTS OF QUALITY AND COMFORT OF A REAL CHALET?

 

Your home should meet four basics criterions

 

1- The outside walls should as far as possible be made of wood exclusively:

-Wood breathes, it naturally regulates the hygrometer of your home,

necessary factor of well being

-Wood accumulates heat in the daytime due to sunbeams and releases it

gradually during night into your home.

 

2- Watertightness has to be irreproachable

-Humidity brings the proliferation of mildew and the wood rots.

3- Airtightness has to be efficient:

-Air seeping through where beams and window or door frames meet, induces heat loss.

4- The thermal insulation of the roof has to be efficient:

-Hot air rises as a result of physical effect, and should be kept under the roof.

 

THE CHOICE OF GLUE LAM LOG

For thirty years, we have been building GLL chalets, stacked and assembled.

The outer and inner bearing walls are made of beams of 100 or 200mm

thickness and the inner walls (partitions) 75 or 50 mm of thickness.

 

The glue lam log "Daniel LACROIX" consists of

of 3 or 4 woodboards dried down to the heart and glued

against the vein. Our experience shows that

this beam meets quality and comfort requirements.

Compared to solid wood:

-Glue lam wood remains stable and never out of shape,

providing in that way, dividing walls perfectly watertight

and airtight.

-The 2 or 3 glued seals improve efficiently the wood insulation

by an additional partitioning.

 

This glue lam system (patent 2.220.357) provides in addition to the natural charm

of massive wood, the stability and durability of a modern material. It is a material

ideally adapted to the construction of chalet.
