In the ”Center for Light and Environmentally-Friendly Structures ZELUBA®”, we develop solutions for the construction industry. We support industrial partners from the wood-based materials and prefabricated housing industry as well as companies from the manual trade sector in the development of new systems. One of our great competences is the linking of simulation procedures with physical and mechanicalconstructive methods of investigation. The spectrum ranges thereby from the development of innovative materials through the complex questions of individual details up to complete wall systems. Another research focus is the development of reactive fire protection systems to improve the behavior of building materials and the fire resistance of components, installations and structures.
Further tasks within the center include examinations concerning the issuing of general building authority approvals for timber constructions as well as the monitoring of manufacturers of wooden houses.
