ITD GmbH is a medium-sized company that is a world-leading manufacturer of carts and support arms for medical equipment and instruments. At the site in Pfarrkirchen, Bavaria, a new factory is currently under construction. The new building includes 1,800 m2 of Kielsteg roof. The elements are able to span wide areas without supports. At the same time, the complete load-bearing roof construction in this case is less than one meter high – about half the height of conventional roof systems. Also, the elements use less raw material than normal glued beams. In this new building, Kielsteg elements are being used to cover a span of 19 m.
