Importance of building
large-size glazing into timber structures has significantly grown over the last
decade. This was one of the major reasons for carrying out the presented
experimental research on timber structures with a fixed glazing placed in the
external sides or in the middle of the timber- frame wall elements. Timber
frame, to which glass pane is directly attached, forms the composite wall
element, which contributes to stability of the entire system with its load
capacity. Different types of adhesives with specific characteristics were used
and they consequently caused different impacts on a wall composite. Both
concepts, with bilateral glass as well as single glass lining in the middle of
profile, are presented.
The support of the companies Kager hisa, Reflex and Sika
Slovenia who donated the materials needed for the experiments is gratefully
acknowledged. The research work is part of the project LBTGC selected on the
international WoodWisdom-Net and fundad by the MIZS.
