Wood Protection pursuant to DIN 68800

Theoretical claim and practical implementation using 5 truss examples

All bearing and supporting wood components - in particular, this includes the truss as an essential element of a building system - are subject to building authority regulations and must be protected from dangers originating from wood-destroying insects and fungi. The how and what of it, however, are subject to discussion. Concerns arise often where only building-construction measures are suggested.

The interactive PDF presentation "DIN 68 800 - Wood protection" presents concerns using five truss examples and makes suggestions for safety, as required by planners, craftsmen, construction supervisors and clients. No matter which path is taken, practicality, sustainability and economic factors always play a part as well.

Tender specification texts for protected wood

To make it easier for planners, builders and executing persons to draw up tender specifications, a team of experts from the industry and federations compiled some tender specification texts.
