CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER (CLT)
In the UK Egoin specialises in structures composed primarily by Cross Laminated Timber and glulam beams. We can also supply steel beams and bespoke in-house fabricated steel connections as part of a project package.
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a wood panel typically consisting of three, five, or seven layers of timber boards oriented at right angles to one another and then glued to form structural panels with exceptional strength, dimensional stability, and rigidity.
EGO CLT panels are manufactured with PEFC certified wood sourced from two species of trees
- Radiata Pine (Pinus Insignis). The wood is locally grown in Basque Forests and it has a high density, in dark red-brown colour.
- Whitewood Spruce (Picea Abies): It is the most commonly used species in the UK, with a light yellow colour and a smoother appearance.
Due to transport limitations, CLT panels can measure up to 3m wide by 13,5m long. Download our EGO catalogue for more information on dimensions, structural properties, panel thickness vs. structural load/span diagrams and available visual grades.
At Olatek we produceup to 40m long bespoke glulam beams for roof structures, portal frames in industrial or sports units, pedestrian walkways and all sort of structures with standard and in‐house fabricated bespoke connections.
We also have a stock with a wide range of sections and lengths for supply only. You can check standard sizes and lengths in our Olatek Catalogue.
Egoin is the “one stop shop” for your project. We design, supply and install your structure so we can keep a strict control over deadlines, price and quality throughout all the process.
- Good design is fundamental in a project involving structural timber. We engage with architects and structural engineers from the early stages of the project in order to optimise the value of the system and fulfil the architect’s design specifications without compromising budget or quality.
As we have total control over the fabrication process, we can assess and propose clients with unique solutions to unique problems.
- Our Engineering department counts with experienced and skilled engineers who will design the structure according to the Eurocodes and the British regulations.
We provide the client with full sets of calculations and drawings packages for Building Warrant.
Delivery Either for supply + installation or supply only, Egoin coordinates transportation and the materials are delivered onsite on articulated lorries, then offloaded by a crane.
Installation Our in-house teams of specialist installers have more than 15 years experience in the timber construction industry and have completed dozens of project across Europe.
Quality is fundamental in timber construction. It is our aim to provide the client with the best products and services, because our reputation goes in every single project no matter its size or value.
