Plate - wall plate

Vertical loads on wall elements create normal stresses in the layers parallel to the applied load. Bending stresses, which result from any possible eccentric ceiling connections or deformations occurring, are also applied. For reasons of the crosswise arrangement of individual board layers, the wall plates also simultaneously accept higher horizontal loads and can therefore be simultaneously used for building bracing. The higher stiffnesses and load-bearing capacity of glued cross laminated timber elements enables economic use in multi-storey residential and industrial structures.
