As a high-tech company, we carry out ongoing research to develop product innovations that in the past have frequently helped us progress from pioneering status to becoming the market leader with specific products. This philosophy designed to ensure our future in the field and to protect quality rests on many pillars:
Wood of the highest quality sourced from the best of growing regions
The area around our Reichenfels location in Carinthia’s Lavant Valley, for example, is an excellent growing region. For this reason alone we have been able to establish ourselves as a top supplier of quality timbers destined for use in visible areas. We are also able to supply Scandinavian pine which possesses fine fibres and particularly attractive growth patterns. All this in conjunction with the special care that we take in addressing our customers’ individual requirements as well as production by lists and different types and combinations of wood (e.g. spruce/larch, log planks) count among our major strengths.
Bilam and trilam of the highest strength
The new EN 14080:2013 standard has also applied for laminated beams since August 2014. Weinberger supplies CE-compliant spruce in strength class C24 and C30 as well as larch and pine in C24.
Flat and edge finger jointing
Flat finger jointing is beneficial to both visual and technical demands. But we are also able to offer our customers an additional extra in the log-house segment: our edge finger jointing.
The benefit: joints only become visible as a discreet line along the length at second glance.
CE-compliant larch bonding with primer
As one of the few companies in the wood industry to do so, we use “PR 7010” Purbond Primer to significantly increase the adhesion properties of larch and thus minimise delamination as result of intense weathering.
Precisely planed with special tools
It used to be customary to use standard tools, e.g. back-toothed profile planing blades. But these blades’ geometric properties would also change every time they were sharpened. That’s why the angle as well as the precision and fit of the tongue-and-groove joints used to vary. Our new generation of tools, however, is based on a revolutionary system that prevents these inaccuracies. That’s why our customers appreciate the absolutely precise fit and variety of combinations that are possible with our log-house planks – regardless of the production batch and date.
Limitless variety of finishes
We do not think of customer requests just as jobs that have to be done, we rather see them as obligations. Which is why we’re able to supply an almost unlimited variety of finishes: be it larch, thermally treated wood, be it steamed, planed, brushed or chopped. We are, for instance, able to create rustic or antique finishes by treating bilam and trilam beams in our special steaming processes. Chopping and brushing, on the other hand, are also able to create unique finishes that are particularly popular with end users in the log-house segment.
Wood is a natural product. And it should stay that way. That’s why we only use formaldehyde-free adhesives. Which – where emissions are concerned – means that we leave wood the way nature created it. And it goes without saying that we meet all the test and certification requirements.
