Holz100 will be your greatest investment. With our well-established partners in the industry, you will not only receive top craftsmanship but also the highest structural quality in the implemention well-being in your life.
Every personalized home starts with an idea. Like a seed that requires the best quality of soil to grow the most fruitful trees, ideas also require the highest standards of building system technologies and materials for optimal living health, safety and comfort.
The Thoma Holz100 wall not only offers fantastic U-values but also combines an extremely high degree of airtightness matching passive house values to bring you the best indoor climate. For example, as a massive, monolithic, but above all vegetal building material, it has outstanding heat storage capacities twice as high as those of conventional mineral wall building materials. This results in a home that is consistently in the winter and cool in the summer with very little energy requirements.
For Holz100, the building system's high energy efficiency equals cost efficiency. Invest, save and earn from significantly reduced maintenance and energy costs over the life cycle of the building. Therefore, when making planning decisions for all of our Holz100 projects, the emphasis was on longevity and durability.
"WOODCUBE", This first high-rise building class 5 was built entirely of wood (Holz100) and without gypsum encapsulation. Deemed a 'Smart Material House' by IBA Hamburg, Woodcube holds passive house energy standards, is carbon neutral, and provides incredible health benefits for its residents.
Patented internationally, Holz100 is the most unique and exclusive product which fulfills most, if not all,ideal building standards which includes an outstanding achievement of passive house standard ratings for energy use and airtightness!
Wood naturally insulates, stores and naturally buffers perfectly, so that every wooden house can become an oasis of well-being if the wood is unadulterated. With its patented construction, Holz100 once again insulates twice as well as full or glued wood and thus holds the world record in thermal insulation. This makes self-sufficient living and passive houses without insulation and complicated building services possible.
Not only wood the best natural heat insulator, but it also accumulates and stores heat well. Dr. Thoma in earlier years had already built many of the world's most energy-efficient homes, but even more so, he wanted to prove that it was possible to create an absolutely energy self-sufficient home without an external source of energy such as photovoltaics. He accomplished this by combining Holz100 with other ancient methods
Moisture is yet another problem in construction as mold is one of the worst poisons of all that can toxicate residential buildings. We guarantee our Holz100 houses for 50 years against moisture and mold and have already built over 1000 houses in 33 countries, from the tropics to the Arctic Circle. Even until today, we have not received a single complaint about mold and condensation.
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. Here 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.
Another disadvantage of statically charged surfaces is the tendency to attract dust and dirt, like the surface of a TVs or stereo. But this problem is easy to solve - just make sure you have as much natural and untreated wood in your home as possible. If you want to treat wooden surfaces, use only natural bees wax or resins.
The human body in itself naturally has a weak electric shield surrounding it. This weak electric field repels dust, dirt particles and bacteria, etc. Rooms with a strong electromagnetic charge disturb this natural protective field and those who are sensitive can experience allergies, inflamed mucus membranes, colds, headaches, etc. In Europe, this is called the 'sick building syndrome'.
An American study called "Plastic and Wooden Cutting Boards" by Dean Oliver, Ph. D. in his research of salmonella and kitchen cutting boards showed drastic results. Salmonella actually dies after a few minutes on a natural, untreated woodcutting board, whereas plastic cutting boards encourage salmonella to thrive and increase in population. Think about laminated kitchen counters and cutting boards which many people think are more hygienic than untreated wood.
Luckily, his grandfather who was a carpenter had a simple solution - to replace all particle boards with handmade solid wood. In short time, their symptoms disappeared and after a few years, Dr. Thoma patented Holz100.
Did you know? Thoma Holz100 was founded by Dr. Erwin Thoma after one day, their two children began to cough consistently once moving into a new apartment. Over time, their coughing became so intense that it created a threat of suffocation and their only solution was cortisone therapy which would destroy their kidneys.
Although the overall number of reports have decreased, why did the proportion of residential and structural fires increase? Because newer homes burn faster, with the exception of Holz100! Surround yourself with firewalls and be protected from toxic fumes.
Consistent with the overall trend, NFID shows that the number of structural fires declined by 26% between 2005 and 2014. However, Over the 10-year period, residential fires consistently accounted for 6 out of every 10 structural fires, ranging from 69% in 2005 and 2006 to 75% in 2013.
"Research shows that 30 years ago, you had about 17 minutes to escape a house fire. Today it's down to three or four minutes. The reason: Newer homes and the furniture inside them actually burn faster. A lot faster." - Jeff Rossen
This may be true with most conventional homes built today, but Holz100, with a burning rate of 0.7 mm/min, you and your family are guaranteed absolute safety and high-level resistance from fire for generations.
According to NFID, there was a total of 38,844 fires in the seven jurisdictions reporting in 2014. Of the 19,062 structural fires reported in 2014, three quarters (74%) were residential fires. Since Holz100 is 100% pure wood, you don't need to worry at all about toxic fumes. With its singular natural component combined with structural capacities akin to a firewall, it is the ultimate fire-resistant building system.
Did you know? Holz100 was able to take the static load capacity for 150 minutes of flame treatment at 900 - 1000 ° C! Thus, Holz100 far surpasses any fire protection standard: 3-5 times better fire safety than reinforced concrete, brick ceilings and stud structures. Holz100 is fire resistant up to REI 120 min. or F 90
One of the most quiet hotels were built by Holz100, thanks to our soundproofing wall option specifically designed to block both structural and airborne noise beyond current standards.
Noise pollution, even in small amounts - when exposed for a long time or continuously, inevitably affects our health. Especially during sleep, your body is always prone to low levels of stress and anxiety that we cannot detect right away but adds up throughout our lifetime.
Airtightness is also linked with the soundproofing value of your home, in which conventional building methods lack. Build with Holz100 to ensure that you have both outstanding soundproofing AND tightness values.
Contrary to all expectations, the building material wood - tested in the form of non-glued, fully solid Thoma Holz100 walls - shields considerably better than, for example, brick variants or lightweight construction systems.
Natural wood that we use in Holz100 achieved one of the best results in radiation shielding. Holz100 panels blocked high frequency mobile phone radiation better than reinforced concrete, bricks or other commonly used prefabricated building systems.
