The mechanically compressed and kiln-dried hardwood dowels are hydraulically injected into the component layers, which absorb the surrounding moisture and humidity, then swell up to create a stable friction-fit connection.
We pride ourselves in using no traces of glues, toxins, chemicals, VOCs, preservatives or fire retardants in our system and offer a 50-year warranty against mold and condensation. Holz100 Canada Inc. is a company that aims to build the world's healthiest, safest, and ecologically sustainable, 100% pure solid wood homes using state-of-the-art engineering technology and building innovation.
Production and operation of Holz100 houses are optimized for sustainability. Holz100 houses are made in factories that use solar energy. The production process is optimized for raw material cycles. Thus, only a minimum of waste is produced during production, and this is used to generate energy in its own cogeneration plant. In any case, the energy required to produce Holz100 is much lower than that of concrete, brick or laminated beams.
Holz100 is the number one ecologically sustainable building system! The only GOLD certified Cradle-to-Cradle system that promotes a circular economy without waste. Holz100 is made from untreated moonwood harvested from sustainable FSC & PEFC certified timber; completely free of glues, toxic chemicals and wood preservatives.
Wood treated with glue or wood preservatives is not only harmful to the health of residents and end-users due to off-gassing of VOCs; the wood is regarded as hazardous waste at the end of its life cycle. With Holz100, there is no waste – mechanically stable through the ancient method of wood doweling; the Holz100 raw elements can be disassembled and reused to build again.
