PHB wall and ceiling planks

Glued laminated timber planks are glue bonded in conjunction with a double tongue and groove system. The planks range from 100 to 200mm thick and 120 to 560mm wide. They are claimed to be easy to install and can bear loads immediately thereafter. Because the elements are installed from inside, they can be matched to the ambient temperature. Therefore they can be installed without any chemical wood preservative according to German standards. PHB also uses selected raw material for this product innovation to satisfy every aesthetic need.


This could conceivably be implemented by existing Glulam manufacturers as a systematised approach to flooring systems as long as economical to do so.
