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 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.
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.
Many of these qualities can be measured today - others are touchable. It's feelings that are by choosing one in favor of one's health harmless building material avoided can be. SystemThomaHolz100 is uncompromising in matters Health, safety and Living environment. Erwin Thoma, Ing.
CO2 balance Wood binds CO2 - your responsible contribution to this important topic
Heart rate detectable lower heart rate during sleep - better rest in the (pine) wood room
Who actually makes you feel secure?
Recyclability no fear of the future - easy recycling of all wood parts
Comfortable living environment - healthy well-being in a natural house
Allergic fitness mushroom-resistant moon wood and natural house dust reduction by solid wood
Architectural tastes are different - suitable for every architectural style
Living health: free breathing through complete renunciation of any toxic building chemicals
Costs: comparable, fair costs in the purchase, surprisingly low operating costs
This effect occurs due to wood absorbing and releasing moisture in order to maintain equilibrium with the surrounding air, known as the equilibrium moisture content. Wood therefore absorbs moisture from the air in humid conditions and releases moisture in dry conditions.
Wood products within a room improve indoor air quality by moderating humidity. On the air: wood products within a room have been shown to improve indoor air quality by moderating humidity.
This result occurred despite one in two people saying they were completely unaware that wood had associated health benefits. The images were taken from a study by David Fell (2010), which showed Canadians have similar innate attitudes towards wood.
From one furnished with a wooden chair, desk, blinds and other items made from wood, while the other showed the same items made from plastic, two out of every three people said they preferred the wooden room.
For Holz100, even with CLT prefab homes, you can achieve a very visual appeal and natural look for your home. Australians appear to be innately drawn towards wood. When Planet Ark presented survey participants with images of two rooms, most voted for the wooden space.
Shortening hospital stays through reduced recovery times will also reduce costs to the medical system, whilst improved first impressions of organisations will attract business to the Australian market.
This is because studies have shown that social interactions that lead to opportunities for self-expression in old people reduces the risk of dementia, a disease that currently costs Australia over $5 billion every year and affects 44 million people worldwide.
Offices with wooden interiors also conveyed feelings of innovation, energy and comfort, whilst offices without wood conveyed feelings of being impersonal and uncomfortable.
The presence of wood products within a corporate environment drastically influenced first impressions, with study subjects significantly more likely to want to work for organisations that featured wooden furnishings.
The use of wooden products in a nursing home increases the number of interactions between individuals. A study in New Zealand presented 69 adults with images of 10 modern corporate interiors, chosen from recently published books showcasing contemporary design.
A Canadian study has demonstrated that the colours and texture of wood elicit feelings of ‘warmth’, ‘comfort’ and ‘relaxation’ in people, all emotions that have been shown to reduce stress, anxiety and recovery times in hospital by studies examining the influences of music, plants and therapeutic massage.
The results of another study indicated that the use of wooden products increased the number of interactions between individuals (i.e. more talkative and more willing to engage with one another), improved emotional state and expanded self-expression in a positive way between seniors.
In a study of the behaviours and health statuses of 44 elderly Japanese residents using wooden tables, wooden chairs and tableware at a care home were examined and compared to residents using plastic products.
We advise that you can decrease the stress of school (one of the most stressful activities in childhood) by incorporating natural wood into the classroom can therefore have significant and long lasting positive effects such as a 100% pure solid wood material like Holz100.
