The foreset cleans the air, by binding CO² from the atmosphere and with the help of the sun's rays turning it into OXYGEN and returning it to the atmosphere. It's therefore very important that there's plenty of healthy forest.
Here in Austria we're in the very lucky position of having 46 % of our land surface covered with forest. Thanks to economic forest cultivation more timber grows back yearly than is needed.
In order to preserve the cycle it is therefore necessary to process wood which is cut at the right age and at the RIGHT TIME OF YEAR.
As it is the only building material which grows naturally with the sun's energy.
In addition timber saves more energy in its extraction, processing and assembly compared with other building materials (up to over 50 %).
The use of timber thus reduces the level of CO² in the atmosphere and therefore the greenhouse effect and is in the true sense of the wood an ORGANIC, ECOLOGICAL building material.
FOR LONG WINTER EVENINGS
The clever building owner who thinks ahead doesn't just put value on sensual qualities, as beauty alone (as all things which are all show) turns out to be expensive. With wood you don't need to have any fears that this might happen.
Solid wood, compared with other building materials not only has the ability to retain heat.
With our special 200 mm thick SOLID WOOD BEAM WALLS we attain a tested k-value of 0,47 W (m²K). However, the k-value alone is not the measure of all things. The compactness of the building body too as well as the thermal zoning are important factors alongside optimal warmth protection via high HEAT INSULATION and the prevention of heat bridges which influence the energy saving building.
In addition on warm days in spring and autumn enery is saved in the wooden boards, which is then given out slowly overnight.
We attach great importance to all these factors in the planning and building stages, so that your home has the right balance of energy the whole year round.
