Travatura

The timber:  a valuable construction material.

Thanks to its wonderful characteristics, timber represents an excellent construction material. It is sustainable, it protects against noise, air and electromagnetic pollution.

From the economic viewpoint it is extremely advantageous. It is light, hard-wearing, durable and has first-class  quake-resistant characteristics. Segheria Valle Sacra creates wooden structures with a highly technical accuracy and a valuable visual impact.

Chestnut tree: our timber

Our creations are made of chestnut timber, an extremely versatile material. Chestnut is valuable, durable and is a perfect structural support.  It is a hard and yet flexible timber, with just a few knots. It is pathogen- and fungus-resistant being rich in tannins.

Thanks to these characteristics and an accurate selection of the best items, we create high-quality trusses and squared timber that are safe, guaranteed and that can stand the test of time. Both the trusses and the squared timber are available in different sizes or can be made to measure for the customers.

Uso-Fiume beams
Uso-Fiume beams are made out of tree trunks. They are planed/adzed and squared up all along the four sides and keep the typical beveled edges for the whole length. Most of the wood’s fibers remain intact, which provides excellent mechanical and elastic characteristics.  Uso-Fiume beams are used for restoration works and anywhere special visual effects are required. The sections measure from 12x12 cm up to 40x40 cm and are up to 11m long.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Palombella
This is a special feature that can be performed both on the beams and on the squared timber at the two ends and which provides a unique visual effect. The Palombella can have different forms and sizes according to our specifications or depending on the customer’s design.
