In the catalogue of timber building components, these components have been reviewed to consider thermal, acoustic, fire performance requirements as well as ecological drivers.

dataholz.com provides architects, designers, building authorities and builders with a collection of data regarding thermal, acoustic, fire performance requirements as well as ecological drivers for materials of approximately 1000 timber constructions and component connections. All the approved parameters have been published with the consent of accredited testing institutes and are accepted by Austrian building authorities without further testing or proof.

This digital catalogue of reviewed timber constructions represents an absolute novelty in the construction industry. Expensive proofs regarding fire, thermal and acoustic performance by the user can be substituted by a reference to or a submission of these datasheets. The utilization of timber in building construction is easily facilitated and the planning phase for a project shortened. Documents required to demonstrate compliance with building codes are available with one mouse-click.

Since the catalogue is implemented using a database, users can quickly and easily access the information required by selecting a construction or a parameter relating to thermal, acoustic or fire performance. The content of the catalogue is continuously being updated and expanded.

The content is being provided by six testing and research institutes under the leadership of Holzforschung Austria and commissioned by the association of the Austrian wood industry (sector-group construction). The project is being marketed by proHolz Austria.
