terrace coverings made of wood

research area: Building & living
project status: completed

This project examined safety and ecological aspects as well as the long-term behaviour of highly stressed terrace coverings made of wood and wooden materials.

The research focused on the work fields of slipping behaviour and slate formation, fastening systems and stumbling hazards, washing out of ingredients and ecotoxicity, as well as visual-haptic changes, and durability. The research results were presented in seminars and can be read about in a specialist brochure. The test area covered approx. 300 m² partitioned into 68 different terrace fields on the "Garten Tulln" and will continue to be observed even after the research project has been completed.
