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%.
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.
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.
DeepGreen is therefore managing the “WOODCUBE” as a reference building that will remain partly accessible to interested planners and contractors after the end of the IBA Hamburg 2013.
DeepGreen Development has risen to the task of making the timber construction marketable by providing its own sales and information line. As a result, exclusive commercial partnerships have been agreed with various timber element manufacturers.
The different structural aspects are thus integrated with cost certainty and sound planning. Construction ecologists, architects, and structural engineers have worked together to devise a sustainable and healthy multistorey system building that is unparalleled on the market.
The experience gained as part of the implementation of the “WOODCUBE” prototype will be further developed and made marketable as a system building. This will involve new quality for timber construction, with a modular assembly system that brings various structural properties together at exemplary prices.
The “WOODCUBE” is the first carbon-neutral multistorey residential block in building class 4 to be constructed without toxic substances and to have the wood completely visible from the inside. As such, it constitutes a new timber construction system for urban settings that is resource-conserving, healthy, and long-lasting.
As a result of these changes, construction of the walls and floor and ceiling elements began only in November 2012. The high level of prefabrication of the timber construction elements meant that only three weeks were required for building the shell structure, so that the “WOODCUBE” was finished as early as May 2013, including all the interior work, after a total of only seven months of construction.
