Wood becomes the building material for the most peaceful recreation homes. In Längenfeld / Tyrol is probably the quietest wooden hotel in the world - the Waldklause. Here, a sound insulation was measured, which is twice as high as the standard values demand.
The best solution is provided by solid wood - provided that it is processed correctly. Solid wood is the best sound or noise eater.
In the past, wooden houses were considered to be clairaudient - and almost everyone can tell an amusing anecdote about thin hotel walls. Thanks to the Thoma Holz100 walls, which have been awarded numerous innovation prizes and certificates, the exact opposite can now be experienced.
In the case of a new building, considerable protection against noise pollution can already be effected in the planning phase without additional expenditure. Acoustic windows are only part of the measures. The highest degree of protection is achieved when choosing the right building fabric. Prefabricated houses in lightweight construction offer only low noise protection and brick or concrete walls are sometimes even very good (ie harmful) "sound bridges".
There is a Holz100 commercial building in Munich which houses offices for doctors and a day nursery for children yet have no problems with noise whatsoever.
The impairment of the quality of life through noise is a disruptive factor that affects many people. Noise disturbs the well-being, the ability to concentrate and the communication. Typical consequences of continuous noise are limited performance and a higher susceptibility to disease.
Noise makes you ill - when building a house, it is important to plan rest. Holz100 is with its solid construction the best sound or noise choker. With double-shell wall structures and adapted ceiling constructions, Holz100 offers solutions far exceeding the requirements of the sound insulation standard.
"Lunar Rhythmicities in the Biology of Trees, Especially in the Germination of European Spruce: A New Statistical Analysis of Previously Published Data" by Ernst Zurcher and Rodolphe Schlaepfer
Excerpt: "Slight but statistically significant lunar rhythmicities were revealed by this new analysis. One of these fluctuations is found in the germination rate from sowings shortly before Full Moon, compared to those shortly before New Moon."
"Looking for differences in wood properties as a function of the felling date: lunar phase-correlated variations in the drying behavior of Norway Spruce and Sweet Chestnut" by Ernst Zurcher
Excerpt: "These lunar rhythmicities occur in both Picea and Castanea, in heartwood and sapwood. These results raise new questions and perspectives about a rhythmic character of the wood–water relation."
Among the different rhythms observed and statistically confirmed for 3 principle criteria was water loss, which for spruce varied systematically between the fellings just before the full moon and those just after. This type of variation is probably due not to differences in initial water content, but to the fact that the forces binding water to the cell walls of the ligneous tissue could be subject to fluctuations.
Traditional knowledge, in form of so-called rural rules, indicates that the date of tree felling has an important influence on wood quality. The main factor, after the season of the year, is said to be the position of the moon. The objective of the presented project was to study the variability of some user-related properties of wood, by analyzing measurable parameters.
In each of these cases, felling at the “right date” is thought to be an important factor to ensure the required properties of the product. Moreover, the rafting of timber used to be limited to certain days of the Moon cycle, when the water was supposed to carry the wood in the best way.
Holz100 naturally insulates your home with pure solid wood, as well as state-of-the-art technology and innovation. Our thermal walls have microscopic air grooves that act as extra insulation, and our airtightness tests show that Holz100 reaches passive house values!
As Canadians, we spend most of our time relaxing in the warm comfort of our home - so it's no wonder why a large portion of our monthly bills go into this category. Surprisingly, Holz100 is not only healthy for your family and children, it also significantly decreases the amount of energy you need to warm your home during winter and cooling during summer!
Maximize the energy efficiency of your home by building with Thoma Holz100. One of our outstanding projects called the "Woodcube" in Hamburg has been prized as a multi-family residential building that saves up to 90% of the energy otherwise used in conventional homes.
The best way to both save monthly costs and save the environment is to ensure that you live in a highly energy efficient home. Although it may not seem much, the costs build up over the years and result to an enormous sum. With Holz100, you can reduce energy consumption up to 90% its conventional counterpart - build with Holz100 today.
Did you know? Off grid living is becoming more and more popular as more families desire something new - to live in complete tranquility and luxury of islands, remote places and private lands. With Holz100, an entirely self-sufficient home is more than possible with solar or any other type of renewable energy as it is incredibly energy efficient.
For Holz100, the vapor pressure is continuously slowed down naturally instead of suppressed by a single, vulnerable layer of foil and guarantees 100% protection from condensation moisture and fungus. Build your home with Holz100 today!
Fungal resistance of a building material is very important, as a vapor retardant will eventually become worn and become less effective in preventing damage of mold / fungus. The best solution is a solid, homogenous wooden wall like the Holz100 system.
Wood naturally regulates both temperature and humidity to benefit every member of the household. Balancing these two important aspects of a healthy, ideal indoor climate can only be achieved by building with pure solid wood such as Thoma Holz100.
In today's homes, it is almost impossible to keep your home perfectly safe from mold and fungus growing in the crevices and hard-to-reach areas between various building materials. Since Holz100 is 100% purely made of wood, we have a 50 year warranty against it!
When you build with Holz100, you don't have to worry about developing mold and fungus in your home due to condensation. Common in homes as humidity develops in time, it can become very harmful to you and your family's health - choose Holz100 today.
The secret is provided by nature: there is no building material that is so outstanding that it absorbs and at the same time stores and buffers so well. The Holz100 system acts like a natural air conditioner - it generates the best room climate, because it stores and insulates at the same time!
One then speaks of "barrack climate", as it may occur in lightweight structures. The untreated Holz100 system offers an ideal, natural balance of fluctuations in temperature and humidity.
Rapid temperature fluctuations in the apartment makes our living condition into an unpleasant burden: when it gets cold fast as soon as the heating is switched off, or when the house heats up as soon as it gets hot outside.
The room climate homes from the Thoma Holz100 system have two important features: They are 100% warm in winter and summer without additional insulation required as Holz100 naturally regulates temperature.
The pure solid moonwood we exclusively use to build our homes are incredibly hypoallergenic without a trace of chemicals, glues or VOCs and is resistant to high frequency radiation, storms, earthquakes and floods. Passive homes are made possible with the timeless Holz100 as it is self-sufficient, six times more fire resistant than concrete and can be built in a few days! For the health and wellbeing of your kids, build with Holz100 - the healthiest, greenest, safest building system in the world.
