More about this product

Hybrid timber uses synergies aka. combinations of different things for mutual benefit. HESS TIMBER seized the benefits of hybridization with the production of the glued laminated timber GLT Hybrid, a product representing the perfect synergy of two wood types that have been combined to create a premium and efficient product.
GLT Hybrid

Generally, a core cross-section would consist of a standardized and profitable type of wood such as spruce. In GLT Hybrid, however, HESS TIMBER builds the outer beam layer using a higher-value wood type such as oak, chestnut or Western Red Cedar.

  • Possible application as a free-form component
  • Improved dimensional stability
