Advantages of a Nateco Home
A massive and safe building material
- A nateco Home meet the needs of house-builders thanks to a dependable and safe building method.
- massive wood construction in combination with concrete/brick construction,
• exceptionally flexible during treatment;
• on-site corrections possible and not costly;
• easy assembly, even in hard-to-reach and narrow spaces, thanks to the possiblity of combining single standard components on-site.
• high dimension stability thanks to technical drying up to 10% +/-2 % humidity;
• with proper protection and ventilation, moisture absorbed during construction penetrates BSH components up to 1 mm, thus preventing significant dimension changes.
A healthy interior climate
• a microclimate open to diffusion and actively regulated;
• wood can absorb and return moisture, assuring optimal interior humidity.
Improved building physics
• vapour tightness;
• only joining elements require caulking;
• caulked surfaces open to diffusion (e.g. roof membranes with sd < 2.00m);
• components can be used as covering and rain protection during construction;
• wood is characterized by very thermal conductivity compared to other construction materials.
• easy assembly;
• further construction stages can be carried out without delays;
• lack of additional moisture during assembly;
• not necessary to follow cure times;
• low own weight reduces installation costs;
• positive impact on substructure dimensions (high degree of prefabrication / quick assembly);
• preliminary works can be carried out in the joinery;
• errors practically eliminated due to a high degree of prefabrication;
• upon the client’s request (however for an additional fee) BSH components can be equipped with cap-ramps screwed into the surface. These can be used to attach ropes for the crane;
• cuts, holes and indentations can be made on-site, with ease and precision.
Simple attachment of suspended ceilings
• suspended ceilings are often used in industrial facilities in order to increase storage capacity. Due to their low height, BSH components are perfect for this purpose.
• when profiling BSH components it is possible to make indentations in the joining grout for the purpose of fitting electrical wires;
• holes for electrical wires and media connections are almost always made later;
• indentations for wires can be made quickly and cheaply.
Easy system statics
• calculations are made according to the DIN 1052 standard and / or Eurocode 5;
• joining elements are typical for wood construction: self-tapping screws, perforated plates, angles or NHT connectors;
• durable component connections without high material costs and workload.
Eco-friendly construction material and energy saving
• wood accumulates CO2;
• finishing and modifications possible with the lowest energy expenditure compared to traditional building materials;
• 1 tonne of wood absorbs 1.9 tonnes of CO2. 500 kg of this amout is coal stored in wood. Wood actively protects our climate;
• BSH components are characterized by a positive energy balance!
• Energy saving solutions via mechanical ventilation with recuperation, heat pump, solar panels, photovoltaics and your own water treatment plant.
Heating cost savings
• due to wood’s generally warm surface and low thermal conductivity, interior temperature can be lowered by several degrees.
High level of fire protection
• F 30-B, F 60-B fire protection classes and even F 90-B with extra sheathing;
• fire protection classes measured according to DIN 4102-4;
• the joining grout for the ”double indentation – double feather” joint is compliant with the requirements of DIN 4102-4, Table 61, for ceilings up to F 60-B and Table 70, for roofs up to F 60-B.
Summertime heat protection
• wood has the highest ability to absorb heat of all available building materials;
• accumulation of heat from solar energy;
• very little heat reaches the building interior;
• at night the accumulated heat energy is being emitted outside.
