Will it be possible to build log houses at all in future that comply with the increasingly stricter requirements and statutory regulations? It is no longer possible to answer this question with a simple “yes”. In order to meet the statutory requirements on building shells, and still be able to guarantee the necessary LEK-values (energy index) despite settlement, master carpenters have to come up with some clever and complex detailed solutions.
The innovative product ‘Bilam forte’, a log-house plank that doesn’t settle, is open to diffusion and free from formaldehyde, makes their work a lot easier. Following prolonged development work, weinberger-holz gmbh has managed to come up with a technical solution for economical serial production. What they have done is integrate the stabilising timber lengthwise to the fibre on the inside of the log-house plank. This ingenious trick guarantees both freedom from settlement and the desired log-house look.
No settling thanks to upright wooden lamellae in combination with the specially-developed tongue-and-groove profile.
