Concerns about global sustainability and the lingering energy crisis are two significant factors driving up demand for lightweight wood products.
This includes log dwellings fashioned from long-lasting, ethically sourced wood. The market for backyard apartments and camping cabins is undergoing a seismic shift away from cement and steel-based construction towards energy-efficient timber structures.
Glulam wood is the current industry standard for cabin features such as greater thermal performance, and resistance to external elements.
Eurodita log cabins manufacturer is solidly positioned in Europe’s growing log cabin sector. The firm, which employs glulam lumber to produce lasting cabins, is a beneficiary of this shift in buying emotions in residential and business constructions.
The rising popularity of glulam log cabins is due to several distinct advantages it offers both immediately and in the long run – to both producers like Eurodita and the end-user. The cabins are also easy to move and install due to their low maintenance costs and lightweight structure.
Green construction regulations are becoming more demanding in North America and Europe, which is indirectly driving demand for superior, certified wood products. Low emission regulations are met by prefabricated glulam dwellings because of which engineered wood is becoming more popular. In many countries, harsher fines for failing to follow environmental conservation policies are driving up demand for log dwellings, which were formerly the standard.
Glulam Wood is better than other wood types because-
The strength of natural wood varies depending on the grain and the presence of irregularities such as knots. Quality is maintained throughout the glulam process.
This is due to the way the technique integrates and organizes existing strong wood components regularly. Similar to how steel acquires strength from ordered carbon bonding, glulam develops strength via grain alignment.
Steel or concrete does not give the same level of safety as glulam materials. To cure glulam, manufacturers use anti-bacterial treatments. This protects it from water intrusion and the elements. Pollution-induced chemical weathering is frequent in industrial and urban environments. Concrete and steel are discolored and corroded faster than glulam due to this corrosive impact.
The heat resistance abilities are the most outstanding safety feature. Temperatures of 900 degrees Celsius were no match for Glulam laminated timber. The material burned even at high temperatures, shrinking in volume rather than collapsing.
Concrete dissolves and steel bend at these temperatures. Only 2 cm of glulam was damaged after more than 30 minutes of high-temperature exposure.
Pitch and imperfections in natural wood cause heat expansion and variable temperatures. That’s the sound of crackles and pops coming from a fireplace. Those flaws are smoothed out throughout the production process.
You save money because you use less material to get the same strength. Getting the appropriate size components without having to cut and fit them saves time and money. Glulam components are less expensive in general because producers may use leftover material from other timber production. This saves you money while also benefiting the environment. To make a superior substance, fewer trees are required. Due to the lack of specialist equipment required to deal with glulam, building costs are further reduced.
Eurodita prefabricated dwellings are more likely to outlast typical timber cottages/homes in terms of durability. The company’s customized cabins have a large floor layout and maybe custom-built to wholesale dealer standards. Dealers are progressively ordering glulam buildings for caravanning sites, national parks, hunting paths, community playgrounds, and other uses, indicating that Eurodita’s demand-supply ecology is strong. Each of these pieces has been thoroughly tested to ensure that dangers to wood construction, such as shrinkage, are eliminated.
