Moisture in wooden structures

We may be involved in the entire construction process in terms of moisture and wood construction products. We can assess the lifetime and propose good solutions to constructive moisture protection or different treatments of the wood to increase longevity and reduce costs for maintenance.

 

We carry out, inter alia, estimates, surveys, foundation and design of retail solutions. We can assess the lifetime and propose good solutions to constructive moisture protection or different treatments of the wood to increase longevity and reduce costs for maintenance.

 

Variable or incorrectly selected moisture gives rise to movements in the form of kupning, WARPING, cracks, etc. We have tools to calculate eg dehydration times and the movements can be expected depending on the surrounding environment and on the dimensions of the träkomponenterna. We make various measurements both in laboratories and in fields such as the wooden bridges, floors and husgrunder to record how the moisture ratio varies over time.

 

Services we offer:

  • Moisture calculations
  • Moisture ratio determination
  • Assessment of construction and design
  • Test in different climate
