Freedom in façade design
We are very flexible when it comes to the façade design. For example, wooden cladding can be applied. A combination with cladding made of sheet metal or wood materials is also possible.
But a plaster façade is also possible. This makes your house look like a solid building - with solid walls but made of wood and not brick or concrete.
What influence do CLT walls have on the air quality of living spaces?
In a research project of Holzforschung Austria and Wood k-plus in Tulln, the indoor air quality of a CLT room was investigated.
To get a realistic picture, the CLT room was expanded step by step and subsequently also used.
The tests make it clear that the indoor air quality of the pure CLT construction is very good.
CLT - Space:
Very good indoor air quality
However, the use of the room has a significant influence on the measured VOC concentrations.
An example: When peeling an orange, the VOC emission briefly rises to 37.5 times that of the empty CLT room. After one hour, the VOC levels are still 15 times higher than the empty solid wood room.
