Support for Gablok framing wood lintels, beams and floor timbers


We call lintels, the élents made of wood that serve as closures and make up the floors and ceilings above the doors and châssis of our wood-frame self-builds.

The longest lintels in our kit measure 240 cm long.

The beams have a large span, which allows them to support any construction project (house, addition, extension,…).

The floor elements can support a span of 4m80. However, this span can be increased by adding beams.


As for the payload, theéléments that make up the boards allow a load of 250 kg/m².
