How do the individual blocks of wood fit together?
Do the Gablok blocks require a joint?
The jointing of the insulated blocks
No jointing system is required in the self-build process with Gablok.
The individual wooden blocks fit into each other, just like a construction set, to form the structure of the house.
The individual insulated wooden blocks from the outer walls are secured together by a vertical rafter system.
Once a floor is finished, these rafters – vertically fixed each 40 cm – joint, with the help of the screws provided, not only all the blocks forming the level but also the lower and upper embossed rails.
You can then apply the material of your choice for the finishes, such as Gyproc panels or any other material of your choice.
In more practical terms, the insulated wood blocks (on a threader or Insulated starter blocks) are nested on a starter. Once a wall is completed, a second rail (the embossed rail) is inserted into the last pile (block under ceiling or insulated belt blocks). It acts as a belt and support for the installation of the floor elements.
Your timber frame is then ready and stable. The same technique is used to fix the interior load-bearing walls.
