Butt joint bonding of timber

 The engineers at Timbatec managed to glue timber on the face side. This opens up a whole new world of structural and design-related options that was previously inaccessible to timber constructions


Bonding of beams

 Gluing cross-laminated timber to form beams of any length


Bonding of slabs

 Gluing cross-laminated timber to form slim slabs of any size


Column heads

 Highly stable column heads with breaking loads from 1,100 to 3,100 kN (110 to 310 tonnes)


Floor slabs

 Connecting column heads to ceiling elements to create slim floor slabs


Frame construction

 These new technologies make it possible to construct multiaxial-bearing slim slabs for structural timber elements


High-rise buildings

 The new technologies put the construction of high-rise timber buildings within reach. The structural elements may need to be encapsulated, i.e. clad, with plasterboard depending on national regulations


Shear walls without slippage

 It is now possible to calculate bracing walls as an entire surface with cut-outs. This reduces flexibility and increases rigidity, e.g. for seismic loads


Simple V-structures

 Angled surfaces can also be bonded. This makes it possible to form simple V-structures, for instance


Complex folded plates

 Unfolding makes it possible to create complex folded plates


Bridge construction

 Tiled slab box used in bridge construction


Pipe-shaped modules

 Box modules open at the face side for hotel rooms


Buildings made of curved construction elements

 Curved construction elements can also be bonded, e.g. for troughs, salt silos, masts for wind farms and similar.


3D shell structures

 Biaxially curved shells can be used to construct 3-dimensional shell structures


Free forms

 Free forms are now also possible

  • Development in the wood construction market requires new building products

    Development in the wood construction market requires new building products

    03.05.2021 Line

    Wood construction has left its niche existence and is becoming the standard. As a result, global demand for wood construction products and their prices continue to rise. New timber construction products are needed to counter this trend: Scrimber would be one solution.

    The new replacement building at Wehntalerstrasse 52 in Zurich-Unterstrass is erected. With the use of the TS3 technology, clay panels, sheep wool insulation and flexible walls, the timber construction is highly interesting from an ecological and technical point of view.

    New TS3 research project launched

    08.03.2021 Line

    TS3 connects wood on the face side and thus enables point-supported large surfaces made of timber. The technology is the result of 10 years of research and development by Timbatec together with the Bern University of Applied Sciences and ETH Zurich. Since the beginning of 2021, a new Innosuisse research project has been running for the further development of the technology and its successful establishment on the market.

    On January 1, 2021, several regulations and laws that favor timber construction came into force. The CO2 ordinance requires that global warming be kept below 2 degrees Celsius. The BöB is a return to quality competition - timber construction is ahead of the game.

    Timbatec has been committed to timber construction for over 20 years. Our vision is to build entire cities entirely from wood. In Thun, the first apartment building with a basement made of wood is currently under construction. We invite you to a virtual tour of the construction site in german on 04. December 2020 at 16:00.
