The manufacturing technology of Massiv-Holz-Mauer and Cross Laminated Timber panels classifies them as low-combustible materials. Firstly, the high threshold of fire-resistance of the panels is secured by their solidness: in the event of spontaneous combustion, the supply of oxygen to the burning surface is actually closed off. Secondly, the technology of processing and manufacturing considerably enhances the wood resistance to fire. Thirdly, partitions in the panels prevent the spread of fire, assuming the fire takes place anyway.
Furthermore, processing in the factory makes the wood totally unappealing for insects.
Absence of deformation
Finishing of a wooden house can be started straight after the assembly; its walls do not lose shape because they were carefully dried in the factory.
Long service life
CLT technology secures this property along with such durable materials as brick or stone: the properties of solid timber panels fastened together with the criscross technique are considered to be more durable than concrete. Some of the manufacturers even give a 200-year warranty of use for these panels, and there is therefore no doubt the house will provide a good service to several generations of one family.
Quietness in the house built using CLT technologies is secured by two factors. In the first place, solidness of the panels used for the assembly of the walls on its own becomes the sound barrier. Also, excellent soundproof properties are guaranteed by the method of crisscross fastening of timber.
