Glued laminated timber from BSH
ABOUT WOOD —
Building material with high resistance to deformation and cracks
BSH wood, i.e. glued laminated timber, is an industrially produced construction material for load-bearing structures with a strength up to 80% better than traditional construction timber. In the production process, individual boards are dried in a dryer then placed on top of each other and glued together. The girders produced can be straight or curved - according to the customer's needs.
Glued laminated timber offered by Best Timber Polska, thanks to its industrial processing, is a building material with high resistance to deformation and cracks. The parts made of glued laminated timber must meet the requirements of construction supervision and are subject to regular quality control of wooden structural elements according to Standards EN 14080.
Glued laminated timber is particularly suitable for heavily loaded elements with large spans and high requirements in terms of resistance to deformation and aesthetics.

Construction wood that’s resistant to damage
If you need a solid, durable material resistant to cracking and deformation, BSH wood will definitely meet your expectations. The material is created using innovative technologies. It can be used wherever aesthetic values are essential while maintaining high technical parameters. BSH is often an alternative to concrete, steel and other commonly known building materials.

It is available in two visual classes: NSI (Invisible Elements) and SI (Visible Decorative Elements). Your expectations will definitely be met by its aesthetic beauty. Why? Because spruce is an ideal material for both construction and finishing.
The benefits you will get by choosing wood
BSH glued timber has many noticeable advantages that make its use in construction and finishing works so popular. First of all, it is a very aesthetic material, with no visible cracks. The structure of the wood is therefore perfect, it does not require much processing. Spruce is easy to work with both manually and with tools, and in addition, it is characterized by high flexibility, so forming it into unusual shapes is not a major problem. Real construction wonders can be created from BSH wood, whilst at the same time being very resistant to high temperatures.
In the event of a fire, BSH wood does not burn quickly and will gradually burn from the outside, creating a charred surface preventing the fire from spreading further. Therefore, houses and structures built of this material are very safe. It has an advantage over many construction materials, and above all over solid wood, due to its resistance to damage. BSH wood can be used in many ways in construction and finishing works, and most importantly, maintaining this material is not expensive. The wood itself is cheaper than other construction materials, so investing in them is very profitable.
Noticeable cost savings
BSH Glued laminated timber has many advantages, but the most important is the possibility of purchasing it at a very attractive price, and its processing is neither expensive nor time-consuming.

The material does not need to be heat dried, no additional moisture is formed during construction, and no final curing is required. The low dead weight of BSH wood additionally reduces installation costs and affects the dimensions of the substructure. By building a house from this material, you can reduce heating costs in the long run. The building is warmer and heat losses are minimal.
Glued laminated timber can be used without any problems in load-bearing structures with high loads, and thanks to its natural appearance, there is no need to use additional products to obtain the desired aesthetic values. BSH elements meet stringent requirements and standards, and most importantly, have very good technical parameters. With proper protection, the wood does not need to be protected with chemicals, which makes it a very ecological material that meets the expectations of people who are close to nature and the environment.
