myths about wooden houses

About the wooden constructions circulates many rumors that they are doing them the wrong card. We will gradually try to disprove them one by one in the following sections.

A short list of the most common myths

    IN WOODEN HOUSE IS POOR SOUND INSULATION

    The problem lies in the wrong technological approaches or so. “Thin wall”. The basis for the structural design of the ceiling so that it is strong enough to Non sagging under load. Furthermore, the ceiling structure inserted into flexible materials based on mineral, glass or wood fiber that footfall be decided by the attenuation. For high above standard requirements can be incorporated into the design of the ceiling and a cast concrete slab or concrete pavement. The floor of the second floor is realized as “floating”. Loosely boards without them firmly to the basic design of the ceiling break off acoustic bridges.

    LIFETIME OF WOODEN HOUSE IS SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER THAN BRICK HOUSE

    Wooden buildings can withstand the same thing you expect from a brick house. Issues every building does not design life, but so. moral obsolescence. Accelerating pace of life, technological progress, but also social changes required every 15 to 20 years to carry out the reconstruction of the house.
    As an example that even Albert Einstein in 1925, built its headquarters in Germany, just as the panel wooden constructions. The house still stands today.

    IN WOODEN HOUSES ARE MOLDS

    The issue of mold is caused by poor design, poor design or improper use of the building. Mold appear mostly due to low surface temperatures interior walls. Technology structural insulated panels SIP these ailments appear. Poor or missing insulation in the walls are not in a “sandwich” technology possible because polystyrene insulation core is a fundamental part of the panel without the correct execution of the insulating core by the panel could not produce. Moreover, we add also the outer insulation.

    FIRE RESISTANCE OF WOODEN HOUSE IS COMPARED TO A BRICK HOUSE ZERO

    Each technology for the construction of brick houses and wooden houses of assembly must pass the certification according to the Law on technical requirements for products. These conditions provide safety against the fire risk. The planned construction project must also include fire management, without which an investor would ever get planning permission.
    In the case of prefabricated constructions meet fire prevention measures alone “sandwich system”. In addition to specially adapted OSB constituent flame retardant polystyrene core panel, interior panels and of course the compact insulation system and facade.

    WOODEN HOUSE IS IN THE CASE OF NATURAL DISASTERS UNSTABLE

    Houses built technology of SIP panels, which suffered natural disasters, remained standing almost no damage. It’s the construction of the panels, so rigid insulating core on both sides and across the board pasting OSB board. The strength characteristics of the panels, together with special connections that are performed by gluing in combination with the clips or bolts, give this type of construction famed strength and rigidity despite the relatively low dead weight.
    Interestingly: After floods in the Czech Republic in 2010 spol. EUROPANEL had the opportunity to assess three houses built of Europanel that were flooded to a height of about 120 cm. Water is ever gotten into panels. Facade with thermal insulation system ETICS were practically damaged. The owners were removed from the walls in the interior soaked drywall and then measured moisture foundation sleepers. After about two to three weeks decreased humidity of the frame from the original 56% to 20%, and there is a correction to interiors.

    WOODEN HOUSE INVADING RODENTS AND INSECTS

    Houses build from technology of SIP panels, are not attractive to rodents and insects because the foam padding for them indigestible.
