provides architects, designers, building authorities and builders with a collection of data regarding thermal, acoustic, fire and ecological performance levels for wood and wood-based materials, building materials, components and component connections for timber construction. All the approved parameters have been published with the consent of accredited testing institutes and are admitted for use by the construction supervising authority without further testing or proof.

Expensive proofs regarding thermal, acoustic, fire and ecological performance levels by the user can be substituted by a reference to or a submission of these datasheets. The utilization of timber in building construction is easily facilitated and the planning phase for a project shortened. Documents required to demonstrate compliance with building codes are available with one mouse-click.

Since the catalogue is implemented using a database, users can quickly and easily access the information required by selecting a structural timber component or a parameter relating to thermal, acoustic or fire performance levels . The content of the catalogue is continuously being updated and expanded.
