Solid sweet chestnut beams and pontoons
Used in traditional architecture, sweet chestnut beams and pontoons are the perfect choice for both a refurbishment and a new building where we want to give a rustic touch.
Thanks to the regulatory framework established by the technical building code, the use of wood is a reliable option for architects and can be compared to other construction materials. In the case of sweet chestnut structural timber, we have the CE marking under the UNE 56546 standard, which establishes the structural resistance D24 according to a defined visual quality.
It is a product that is sawn to measure, adapting to the customer’s needs.
Optional: planed and rafter tail.
