It features an "L" shaped continuous cleat with pre-slotted fastening holes for ease of locating and installing and reducing thermal movement failure.
Wood is a good insulator and it does not have a high level of thermal movement and it actually has good fire resistance - a small section of timber is combustible and burns easily, however large structural sections have good fire resistance and burn slowly.
It is sensitive to many factors, such as the lattice thermal movement (the phonon specific heat) and the electron thermal movement (the electronic specific heat).
He suggests "thermal movement" contributed to the decision to stop using the pyramids.
