The timber of Holz100 system is harvested when the sap levels in the trees are at its lowest; influenced by the gravitational pull of the moon cycle. A stable moisture content is achieved by allowing the timber to drain vertically and drying naturally for at least 1-4 years. This drying cycle builds a muscle memory in the cellulose fibres of the timbre, thereby producing lumber that is more stable and less prone to cracking and splintering over time. The result is a controlled indoor climate in Holz100 homes.
Holz100 is a breathable building system that is 100% sustainable. The core principle behind a Holz100 home is its cradle-to-cradle approach. The product is 100% pure solid wood, without chemical toxins or preservatives, and can be reused and recycled back into nature as compost and nutrients for future thriving trees. Holz100 harvests only moonwood, that are slowly dried naturally, allowing the trees to mature and stabilize with a low relative moisture content. Holz100 has a 50-year warranty against mold and condensation.
Holz100 homes are breathable, made of 100% pure solid wood. Studies have shown that living in a wood home boosts our immune system, slows down the heart rate, and allows the body to relax and experience REM sleep; a restorative process in renewing our mind and body. Breathe easy and freely without traces of toxic chemicals or off-gases from unnatural products. Holz100 wood provides excellent soundproofing and thermal insulation, resulting in improved indoor air quality.
Do you have cabin fever? Never feel isolated again! Holz100 is an innovative breathable building system that brings nature indoors. Holz100 homes are 100% pure solid wood, free of chemicals and toxins. Without synthetic glues and paints, or dust from mineral wool, the building is able to breathe and acts as a natural filter. Holz100 is an eco-friendly product, and perfect for allergy sufferers.
The moisture content in your new hardwood flooring is as important as the building structure to prevent shrinkage and gaps once you’ve moved in. Holz100 is a sustainable, natural, sound-proof solution to building a wood home that is less prone to dryness overtime due to its natural slow drying process. The moisture content of a wood home built with the Holz100 system is 6-10%.
The Holz100 system is harvested from mature trees that have been naturally exposed to varying temperatures and weather conditions throughout its drying lifecycle. The drying process, therefore, instills in the wood a muscle memory. The slow and natural drying process enables the oxidation and depletion of sugars that otherwise would attract the growth of fungi, mold and insects. Build a sustainable wood home with Holz100.
Holz100 harvest trees at the right time and maximizes natural wood drying techniques to achieve quality timber with natural moisture protection.
Moisture content below 20%, protects the wood from fungi growth.
Moisture content below 8-12% deters insects from feeding on the wood.
A wood home built with Holz100 timber will have a moisture content of 6-10% and will be naturally protected from fungi and insects.
