Uniqueline wood composite element
Uniqueline wood composite elements are multi-layer lightweight panels made of wood in a patented design. Wood composite elements
comprise a first layer as a tension area and a second layer as a pressure area, the first and second Layer are spaced apart by a third layer.
Sounds complicated, but it's very simple:
The first layer is made of wood, for example laminated veneer lumber. The thin sheets of veneer glued together do not have any flaws, as a result of which a material layer is formed which is completely homogenized. In case of stress cracking will only occur on one layer of veneer, all adjacent layers, especially the adhesive layers inhibit spread. Veneer sequences can consist of one or more types of wood, the type of wood and its properties can be specifically exploited. Even the thickness of the veneer layer can be varied, which is particularly advantageous in the case of curves.
The second layer can, but does not have to be, made of laminated veneer lumber; solid wood, for example, is sufficient. This can also be how the wood of the first layer must be glued together, with the option of making the individual sections from different types of wood to train. Pressure-loaded wood can also contain branches of larger size, as this is not of paramount importance for strengthplays.
The third layer represents the transition area between the first and second layer, so it is expedient to be made of one material to be constructed that is suitable for both moderate pressure loads and moderate tensile loads. The third layer can ever be solid or as a hollow structure according to requirements.
