Material

Wood

Timber frame internally

  • The timber used in the manufacture is supplied from FSC-certified North European coniferous trees from selected sawmills with sustainable forest management.
  • The proportion of heartwood is at least 60% for exterior rebates and surfaces.
  • In general, knots and small cracks are cut off and the wood finger-jointed.
  • However, minor knots will be permitted.
  • All softwood sections are laminated and their edges rounded.


The surface treatment uses the System 2 Eco, which involves:


  • Impregnation in a flow coat system.
  • Primed with a flow coat system.
  • Topcoat with a water-based paint, gloss 20.

Aluminium

Aluminium cladding externally

  • Since the external aluminium cladding functions solely as a climate envelope, it does not form part of the sealing face.
  • The cladding is attached using plastic clips to ensure the necessary draining and ventilation of the wood components.
  • The aluminium alloy must be EN AW-6060 or EN AW-6063 in accordance with EN 755-2.
  • Aluminium glazing beads are polyester powder-coated to a coating thickness of 60-120 microns, standard gloss 30.
