binderholz stands for innovation. Because progress and advancement have been the driving forces of the company ever since its founding in 1950. The company chronicles reflect it, and the constant development of the product and service portfolio prove it. A small sawmill operation at the onset of our history, the company has grown into one of the leading European manufacturers of products for timber construction and a supplier of one-stop solutions for solid wood construction.
With the development of timber construction products and construction solutions, binderholz constantly focuses on the most efficient manufacturing and production processes, based on cutting-edge production technologies. The sustainable use of resources as well as the development of innovative product properties and their integration in construction solutions customized to the client are also vital goals.
It is imperative to make even better use of the outstanding material qualities of the raw material of timber. That's exactly what binderholz strives to do, carrying development forward. This way, constructions are created that are particularly compact and lightweight in comparison to conventional solutions. In addition, they feature a high degree of prefabrication and top-flight workmanship. So-called hybrid solutions, i.e. combinations of solid timber and other materials, broaden the range of possibilities even more.
All binderholz developments are designed so they do not only conform to the requirements of building laws specific to different countries but, instead, go beyond them: what you get today will already comply with the standards of tomorrow. In the process, all aspects of statics and construction (dimensioning), structural physics (fire, noise, heat), ecology (life cycle assessment, carbon footprint, ecobalance, embodied energy), environmental and room hygiene (healthy housing), recycling (NO WASTE) and recovery (REUSE) are taken into account.
To this end, binderholz collaborates with independent test institutes and renowned specialists. The result pays off in all-around carefree packages for customers - made up of innovative building products and construction solutions for which all technical, commercial and ecological key figures, including those relevant to health, as well as all required certificates and documents are on hand.
The key indicator for every innovation is its suitability for everyday use. That is why binderholz collaborates with users and key partners from industry, commerce and science. For instance, we closely collaborate with Saint Gobain Rigips, Austria, and the WoodKplus excellence center for timber in Tulln. The clustered know-how and experience of our partners are systematically integrated in our new developments and enhancements.
This way, construction solutions ready for assembly are created for our customers. For example, structures for walls, ceilings and roofs, finalized in every detail regarding statics, structural physics and fire protection, as well as innovative connections. Practice-oriented application guidelines, e.g. for fire walls, noise and heat insulation, as well as those addressing topics of healthy living are also in place.
The construction solutions and application guidelines of binderholz are comprehensively checked and evaluated prior to publication. The benefit for the customer: Since all certificates required under the building law are already in place, the planning costs can be reduced considerably and a sustainable, resource-efficient and economical timber construction be guaranteed.
In order to ensure maximum future viability and anticipatory planning, binderholz is also active in numerous industry initiatives and plays a part in the formulation of future construction standards.
Products and construction solutions by binderholz make the planning, designing and building process easy. This is ensured by a broad range of services, from the Manual for Solid Timber Construction, with its detailed descriptions of structures for walls, ceilings and roofs, to the company's comprehensive testing, approval and certification work. All products and construction solutions conform to all applicable standards. They are also certified according to standards specific to different countries.
So planners and architects can easily access the core parameters, all binderholz construction products are listed in the most renowned databases for building materials - among them the Rigips database, the Austrian "baubook" database for building ecology and the Swiss Timber Association Lignum.
