Solid construction timber (KVH®)

KVH® (Konstruktionsvollholz) is sawn construction timber ma​de from softwood, typically sp​​ruce (pine on request), for use in modern timber construction. KVH is characterized by defined load-bearing capacities and is produced and stocked in standard cross sections to cover all the requirements of modern timber frame construction.

The advantages of standardization for trade and the processing industry are obvious: produced as stock, short delivery times, economic planning and construction. On top of this we are able to produce KVH on your demand: flexible, individual and fast.

We offer KVH in 2 surface qualities: KVH-Si for visible s​tructures and KVH-NSi for non visible structures and in variable lengths up to 16m. Dimensional stability is guaranteed due to a technical drying process, where the average residual moisture has been set to 15% ±3%.

  • high product quality​
  • precision of fit
  • dimensional stability
  • attractive appearance​
