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.
