         1.  Laminate sections are cut along the core and glued under pressure forming a joint stronger
            than the timber itself and reducing the likelihood of cracks.
         2.  Milled tongue and grooved joints provide strength and stability to the structure.
         3.  This method of joining leaves a neat line externally and internally, insulation strips are in-
            serted to  prevent the movement of air and moisture.
         4.  The angles ensure water runs off quickly on the external walls.
         5.  The thickness of the log improves the durability and thermal stability of the log cabin.
         6.  The dead load of the building compresses the insulation and T & G joints thus ensuring
            stability, airtightness and movement of moisture - characteristic of a Log Cabin.

       Glued and Laminated timber sections are seeing increasing use in major building projects,
       the method overcomes one of the problems that saw the demise of timber as a structural
       material in buildings in favour of steel and concrete, where consistent performance of
       timber could not be guaranteed.

       Timbers superior environmental characteristics and visuals are seeing the return into our  Internal Wall
       homes and buildings but this of course is not news to a manufacturer such as Ritsu, where
       use of laminated timber has featured in our buildings for decades.

       Manufactured logs are fully prepped for window &          Walls and corners where joined, are fully prepped in
       door installation, cable management, etc., then           the factory in readiness for assembly on site.
