Saw Systimber beam solid wood - Systimber demo

1. Saw the Systimber beams

  • Systimber-beams are adjusted on site and can be connected in a masonry way or a grid.
  • A special ruler profile can be screwed to the cross-cut saw /miter saw. This ensures the accuracy when the beams are shortened – the cut is exactly in the middle of two grid holes.
  • The width of the cut is 4mm and equals the cross-cut side when building in a masonry way. These can be finished airtight with an elastic kit.
  • Assembly is self-explanatory and simple, as it only has two components.

2. Anchor the Systimber beams

  • The anchors or brackets allow the profiles to float at a chosen distance above the concrete floor.
  • The junction should be sealed on the inside with a foam tape or sealant. On the outside, this should be finished with shrinkproof mortar.
  • The corner brackets/anchors can be attached using standard tools (screwdriver or drill).

3. Assemble the Systimber beams

  • Flexible double EPDM seals between the beams keep the unit airtight and watertight.
  • The fixings and anchors are invisible.

4. Tighten the bolts

  • Systimber-beams are connected according to a dimensionally stable system using crossing steel rods, comprising Systimber® bolts screwed together.
  • De Systimber®-bolts are tightened using standard tools (screwdriver or drill).
  • The cumulative length of the Systimber® bolts holds the overall length of the assembled building boards stable, whereas each beam separately is free to shrink and swell according to the humidity.

Systimber = easy and fast construction

  • Two people, with standard hand tools and a Dewalt-style cross-cut saw can assemble 100m² per day or build a complete housing unit within the space of a week.
  • All types of additional insulation and finishes are feasible but not immediately required.
  • Systimber can be deconstructed and rebuilt repeatedly without any damage.
