State of the art timber construction solutions with one mouse-click. 24 hours a day 7 days a week
dataholz.com provides information covering thermal, acoustic, fire as well as ecological performance levels of building materials, building components and connections/ joints. These performance levels have been determined by accredited testing insititutes through testing, calculation and/ or assessment. The datasheets can be submitted to building authorities to demonstrate compliance.
Reviewed construction details
The datasheets showing relevant construction details. The components presented here reflect current state-of-the-art in residential timber construction. Designers are encouraged to draw on this assembled best practice and experience for the design and building of their project.
Easy to use
Construction solutions can be accessed by either selecting the type of construction and/or by searching for specific parameters like thermal, acoustic or fire. From start research to view matching data entries in not more than four mouse-clicks.
Quick access any time of day
The web-based database allows users to quickly and easily access the required information – 24 hours per day 7 days a week. dataholz.com is continuously expanded and updated.
Reliable quality data from accredited testing institutes
The testing and assessment of performance levels quoted in dataholz.com have been carried out by accredited testing institutes. This ambitious goal has been reached by the cooperation of six Austrian testing and research institutes under the leadership of Holzforschung Austria.
The development of this catalogue was commissioned by the Association of the Austrian wood industry, sector-group construction (Fachverband der Holzindustrie Österreichs) and marketed by proHolz Austria.
Unique regularly updated design service
Technical information supporting proof of compliance
Construction professionals are frequently required to submit proof of compliance to building authorities to confirm that their chosen construction materials, building components (wall, floor, roof) and their connectivity meets building regulations. The chosen solutions have to demonstrate adequate thermal, acoustic, fire performance levels. dataholz.com offers a collection of datasheets for building materials, timber constructions and component connections for architects, designers, building authorities and builders. These datasheets will generally be accepted as proofs of compliance by building authorities in Austria.
This unique comprehensive database with over 15,000 performance parameters has been backed-up by suitable evidence, which has enabled its wider acceptance by building authorities throughout Austria.
Users have the opportunity to access this extensive database of approved solutions and thereby avoid expensive data gathering to prove compliance for individual building elements.
The data on ecological drivers and performance indicators have been provided as the drive for sustainable construction becomes increasingly important.
Optimising designing and planning in timber
At this point in time approx. 1500 datasheets for constructions, 80 construction details for connections and in addition information on wood and wood-based composites are available on dataholz.com.
Considerable time savings can be made during the planning stages of a project as potential building solutions with appropriate performance levels can be reviewed and chosen at a click of a button.
The digital catalogue of reviewed timber construction solutions is unrivalled in the construction industry. The catalogue enables, facilitates and promotes the use of wood in construction.
