Manufacturing

The production of the materials for timber frame „EcoPure Homes™” conforms to the high quality criteria, confirmed with several international standards. The quality of „EcoPure Homes™” materials and the effective production is guaranteed by the following preconditions:

— Wood CE branding, which attests that the material coincides the EU environment protection, health and safety requirements. CE branding means that the conformity evaluation procedures of the product have been carried out or, in other words, laboratory tests, which have affirmed that the producer has precisely followed the EU directives in the process of the material production.

CE branding attests that “EcoPure Homes” materials coincide the EU norms.

— Conformity to ISO 9001 standard, which refers to our enterprise’s quality control system of material production process. ISO 9001 is one of the most popular control system standards in the world, which defines the requirements for enterprises’ administration system for achieving quality objectives and meeting the demands. The enterprise, the control system of which meets the requirements of ISO 9001 standard, strictly follows that their products conform to the demand of high quality. — Own material production plant – our enterprise owns a modern timber frame house source material factory, the maximum capability of which is up to 10 houses per month. For clients it means that the order will be fulfilled on time and without any unforeseen delay, how it may happen with builders, who do not have their own material plant and they have to rely on material delivery from another place. Moreover, in our factory we personally control the quality of the manufactured materials. — Ecology of materials – „EcoPure Homes™” materials are ecologically pure, because they are not treated with harmful chemical substances. For example, timber framework panels are not treated with antipyrens, instead a fire-resistant gypsum ensures the fire safety. The wood used in the material production makes the building of „EcoPure Homes™” ecologically friendly to the surrounding environment – it is brought from so called sustainable forestry that pays attention to the economic, social and ecology aspects and is certified with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certificate.
The bearing structure of „EcoPure HomesTM” timber frame panel is made of fir boards which are assembled in safe construction with the help of timber connectors. Before being built into construction, the materials undergo a thorough overhaul (of dryness, knottiness etc.), although they have been already once certified with CE branding and conform to C18-C24 class according to EURONORM 5 (or T-1 according to Norwegian Standard), calibrated materials, the moisture of which cannot exceed 18%. The enterprise works with T-1 standard timber. After the supporting framework is constructed, it is covered with OSB 3 panel cladding or ecological panels (for example, wind gypsum board). Cladding is mainly used to provide longitudinal deformation resistance and ensure rigidity to the framework construction. For a wooden framework construction cladding panels are used for the external part of the framework, where they have the function to form the initial dry coating, as well as to cover and protect all insulations during the construction works. External cladding provides constant protection from weather changes.



Mineral wool, ecowool, wooden or cannabis wool serve as a heat insulation material in timber framework panels of „EcoPure HomesTM”. As a wind barrier wooden boards or wind barrier membranes are used. After heat insulation is installed inside the construction, it is covered with vapour insulation barrier. Polythene is stabilized against natural deterioration and the influence of ultra-violet light. Vapour insulation polythene is necessary to protect the heat insulation layer from water vapour access, occurring from inner rooms in the result of household activities (cooking, doing laundry and washing floor). The proper usage of vapour insulation polythene helps a medium house to save approximately 9% on the heating bill per year. After installing the vapour barrier, communications are covered with additional transversal lathing and filled with another layer of insulation, which makes it impossible for any „cold bridge” to appear. In this layer electric installation, alarm wires, internet and telephone and other wires are installed, thus leaving the constructed vapour barrier unaffected, providing additional heat insulation and achieving good effect of acoustic insulation. After erection of the framework construction follow the construction sealing works. The stability of the sealing is ensured by qualitative SIGA sealants as well as the professionalism and accuracy of the builders. To the transversal lathing interior decoration plates are attached, to which interior finishing materials are applied to just after the erection. Timber framework panels are manufactured in accordance with client’s wishes and building norms. The heat insulation characteristics of our manufactured panels provide coefficient of thermal transmittance up to U=0,1 W/m2K. From such panels it is possible to build houses which heat energy expenditure is not more than 15 kW/m2 per year. It means that you spend for heat not more than 1,5 litres of diesel on 1m2 of living space per year. Find more detailed information on these houses in the section: “Passive” houses.
