Multi Storey-Seismic Resistant - TimberLab Structures

Product Description

As a result of R&D programs in which TimberLab/McIntosh have been involved the resilient performance of Timber Structures in recent earthquakes has been enhanced with new technologies involving post tensioned multi-storey solutions.

Post tensioning enables the structure to return to its original position. Timber’s ability to absorb energy means structural integrity is maintained after the seismic event. Where concrete and steel may have shattered or deformed post tensioned timber structures continue. TimberLab’s wide experience in gluing large structural timber members meant fabricating large LVL sections was a natural progression.
