Wood Houses

And the 'elite' wooden wall material – laminated veneer lumber just extremely rarely produced thicker than than 21cm – because of the peculiarities of the technology. And he stands, if a high – over $ 850-950 per cubic meter (a safety adhesive used – almost always topical issue). That is, now houses made of wooden materials simply can not be used without additional warming. So, in any case impossible to get a natural wooden surface of the walls in the house, and, moreover, will have to spend quite a lot of their own forces and funds for special insulation, which in turn will lead to a plausible (and rather common) problems of safety and environmental protection heaters. Thermal conductivity of building blocks from Arbolita, used to house up to 3 floors – 0.12-0.14 W / m * K. Accordingly, the thermal efficiency of their dominance over the tree from 20% to 160% (it is worth remembering and the weakening of heat-insulating properties of walls of wooden houses on the occurrence of cracks, saturated with moisture and other aspects). The thickness of the standard building blocks of Arbolita – 30 inches, therefore, houses are even warmer than those legendary – from half a meter of logs. And this is confirmed by many decades of successful operation of houses of Arbolita even in the most northern regions of Russia. Easy combustibility of wood materials has always been one of the main problems – the latest means of a little lower level flammability, but the effect is relatively small, and decreases with time.

Commercial Director

"Production of European-style – is not only the latest equipment and technology but also multi-tiered system of quality control – says Leo Minullin, Commercial Director, td propleks (the exclusive supplier of pvc profiles produced in Russia in the Austrian technologies). – We are working on the Austrian extrusion equipment for the compounding of the raw mix, developed by experts of this country for Russian conditions. Composition of components adapted to our climatic conditions, in particular, to a frosty winters. Moreover, additives (pigments, stabilizers, plasticizers, etc.) are delivered to us directly from Austria ". Each batch of raw material input is hard to control quality control laboratory at the plant propleks.

Regularly carried out tests on samples of products according to parameters such as strength, heat resistance, color surface. A special climate control simulated weather effects in real-world conditions. Samples of the profile is subjected to several tens of cycles of wetting and exposure to ultraviolet light, and then examined for signs of damage, changes in color and strength characteristics. If the samples did not pass at least one test, reject the entire batch of profiles, as manufacturing technology is adjusted to eliminate the violations. Such a quality control system to meet most severe European standards, ensure that the profile was released at a factory in Moscow or Siberia, is no different from fellow extruded somewhere Bavaria or the outskirts of Vienna. However, Russian consumers are often unaware that the "pedigree" of pvc profile and its quality – this is not the only conditions for long life plastic window.
