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.
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 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.
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.
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
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.
