Element House Production

Precise planning and organization of element house production as well as productive equipment ensure timely and precise execution of the technological process. ZTC believes in applying this principle to all stages of element house production such as material workpiece sawing to specified dimensions, their transfer to assembly posts, assembly of finished components, their packaging and transporting to the finished product warehouse. The next stage sees the finished panels and wood components transported to the construction site and assembly of the building. Such element house production planning allows for speedy and high quality construction as well as performing the assembly of a building in places that are difficult or even impossible to reach with large construction equipment.

Excellent thermal insulation and increased fire safety of wood structures is achieved by laying mineral or rock wool in the building component panels in several layers by covering places where insulation is spliced and covering wood components (studs, rafters and beams).

From the outside the load-bearing structures of a wood panel house are clad with air barrier sheets that are overlaid with a windproof membrane. This ensures high thermal properties and prevents heat loss. From the inside thermal insulation is overlaid with a vapour barrier which protects the separating structures of the building and insulation from the humidity indoors (vapour) and improves the microclimate in the room.

Wind and vapour isolation connections to constructive elements and interlapping are glued with special tapes inside the ZTC factory so that the efficiency of thermal insulation is not decreased. Fire safety of the building can be increased by using fireproof materials in the finishing of the facade and interior.

The timber frame of the building can be thickened with extra thermal insulation according to the needs of the client. This is how components of passive houses are made which increases construction costs but also increases the thermal resistance and decreases expenses on heating.

Wood is very durable which allows its use in places that need to bear large loads, weights and strains. Wood dried to the right level of moisture can last for a very long time that can span centuries. For wood structures of buildings produced by ZTC wood materials of C16 (used in least significant structures like partition walls) and C24 (for load-bearing structures) norms of durability are used for the most part. This wood is industrially dried and calibrated afterwards, then sorted by level of durability and marked with CE conformity marking according to EU norms. When necessary depending on the place of use of wood materials it is processed or impregnated with specific wood protection solutions that significantly increase the lifespan of wood.

Interior and Exterior Finishing

Our standard offer for siding is siding planks that are painted with lasures (leaving the wood structure visible) or acrylic paint covers the wood structure completely or partially. Avery wide variety of color tones are available. Siding planks are painted indoors where the process is not influenced by weather. This significantly improves the quality of the facade and its lifespan. Planks of a variety of wood species are available such as spruce, pine tree, larch, exotic wood etc.).

ZTC offers various types of facade siding:

  • brick or stone veneer;
  • plaster or decorative plaster;
  • metal profile;
  • brick or stone tiles;
  • arious woodchip and cement fibre construction slabs;

The possibilities for interior finishing are unlimited. Here are the basic options:

  • wood;
  • various woodchip and cement fibre construction slabs;
  • plasterboard;

ZTC can ensure that the full spectrum of finishing works and services are carried out in the project.

Live in harmony with nature

Timber frame panel houses are environmentally friendly because they effectively combining quality natural materials with the latest scientific advances in construction. Construction technology has achieved the optimal balance between thermal insulation and breathability which is beneficial to the health of residents of the building.
