Stabilame offers a unique mastery of all wood construction techniques.
Nailed CLT is currently the most successful construction system. Very resistant and offering considerable stability, it is particularly used in timber construction of multi-storey buildings. Walls made of nailed CLT therefore have unparalleled sound and heat insulation levels. They also provide good protection against waves.
This system allows great freedom of action from an architectural point of view and enables numerous elements to be pre-machined. Last but not least, Nailed CLT is the most eco-friendly construction system on the market. Its environmental impact is almost nul. It does not generate any waste and the elements used are 100% recyclable and recoverable. A benchmark in terms of environmental ethics.
Glued CLT makes monolithic walls and floors in solid wood, made up of a succession of boards glued to each other. Solid and ensuring very high stability, this assembly technique is particularly used in two situations: the construction of houses with particularly complex architecture and the construction of buildings which can reach seven floors, and more. Many local authorities and businesses have opted for glued solid wood to build nurseries, nursing homes, residential buildings or offices. This system combines all the benefits of wood in terms of comfort, security, insulation or respect for the environment.
Stacked-board construction offers the most natural and most direct wooden finish possible. As soon as the walls are raised, wood is present everywhere and gives your house soul. Of course, it is possible to clad these walls as desired in order to perfect the cosy and warm atmosphere that emerges from a wooden interior. However, the walls can remain as they are, as the finesse of the assemblies in effect guarantees immediate finishes that are very refined. "Wood-on-wood" assemblies give a building considerable overall stability, since absolutely all the wall elements intersect. They also give a clean design, with refined corners.
A timber frame is a skeleton made up of herringboned uprights and frames which are connected to each other. Various woods can be used to create this frame but Northern silver fir is especially appreciated as it combines several advantages, particularly in terms of stability. The construction goes up level by level. Its unity and stability are also ensured by floors and panels, also made of wood, which take their place on this large framework. Insulation is then housed between the rafters, in the very thickness of the wall. The frames are then closed on the inside using panels that can be made of wood or other materials. As for the outside, it is clad depending on aesthetic choices, level of insulation or the facing or cladding used.
Post and beam
Wood displays especially interesting thermal performance. An excellent insulator, it certainly allows heating bills to be reduced. On a different note, wooden structures can be assembled very rapidly. Thanks to prefabrication work carried out beforehand in the workshop, on-site time is much shorter than for traditional construction and this significantly reduces construction costs. Wooden structures are long-lasting and represent an excellent property investment. Many half-timbered and solid wood houses have passed through the centuries in our neighbouring countries, bearing witness to a great longevity.
