Wall insulation - Passive house technology


Passive exterior wall system technology provides home with a superior level of continuous insulation with a complete air and moisture barrier, and a high degree of thermal mass. Continuous insulation during winter keeps the heat energy inside the house and in summer the heat energy outside the house. The air and moisture barrier prevents the air infiltration through the walls that causes more work for heating and cooling systems and higher energy usage. Thermal mass walls absorb and delay the impact on interior temperatures of a home caused by changes in external conditions, making occupants more comfortable and further reducing energy usage. The primary goal of passive design is to reduce the home’s dependency on mechanical energy. We also take care of healthy indoor environment and provide a good air-recuperation

Airtightness

A very important factor is the Building airtightness (also called envelope airtightness) which can be defined as the resistance to inward or outward air leakage through the building envelope at a given reference pressure, usually 50 Pascals and this unit called n50 . The lower the n50 value is for a given building, the more airtight is its envelopeIn. Our aim is to achieve a great airtightness value, down to 0,6

Sound isolation

Great sound insulation achieved thanks to a specific of the materials throughout the house. Eco wool is a naturally soundproof product, means the house is about 50% more sound resistant compared to conventional building

U-value (thermal transmittance) and resistance to fire

Carbon usage is the main focus for modern buildings, but it’s not only down to that. A thermal performance of the building is another contributing factor. Thermal performance is measured in terms of heat loss, and is commonly expressed in the construction industry as a U-value. A timber frame construction in combination with the modern insulation gives a potential of a great thermal efficiency that satisfy the latest regulations.
The technical specifications are represented below:
House part U-value W/m²K Resistance to fire
Main wall 0,15-0,22 REI 60-180
Windows (approx) 0,7-1,1 EI 30-60
Main door 0,7-1,1 EI 30-60

Windows

Commonly, windows have been the weakest energy efficiency elements in a building. Single-glazed windows are the highest energy transfer link thus potential heat loss could be high depending on the climate conditions. while permitting the highest daylight transmission. Today typical double-glazed framed windows have the most common E-class efficiency rate. In our house all windows are built inside of an insulation layer to reach maximum thermal efficiency

Modular House - How it's built

You probably have already gotten a little bit more familiar with the benefits of a modular house, now we want to tell you more about the manufacturing process itself, we actually find it awesome

  • House blocks are factory pre-build under high quality standards
  • Controlled costs as manufacturing process is predictible and transparent
  • Precise time management as process standardised
  • Structural strength thanks to method of construction
  • Less stress. No argues with 3d parties, constructors and builders
  • Build times are reduced to 50% and process not affected by weather conditions

Modular house - building process explained

1
Floor and ceiling panel bases are made first
2
Panel insulation follows, wall panels are being installed
3
Panels and frame are put together
4
Electrical wiring and plumbing are prepared
5
Electrical sockets, wiring and pipes are now installed
6
Interior works, decoration and floor covering
7
Door fitting and furniture installation
8
Modules delivered, unloaded by crane and assembled

Quality control

One of the main benefits of the modular home is the manufacturing process itself, the so called human factor is significantly decreased as almost all construction will be done under one roof, quality standards and regulations, thus always guaranteeing the same top quality level and speed of building process.
Quality assurance is performed after each manufacturing step described above to avoid any disturbances to the next stages
Materials meet necessary durability and moisture-resistance standarts and country regulations
