Eco houses from straw rye bakers :
Production (production of straw blocks) - only in the factory, on special equipment. self-supporting, characterized by high energy efficiency , environmental friendliness , reliability.
Design - our architectural bureau adapts your conceptual design to the features of ecopanel technology . If you do not have a project, we will develop an individual project that meets your requirements.
Construction - our certified representatives can complete the turnkey construction of an energy-efficient house: together with our partners we can offer a number of solutions for the construction of the foundation, exterior and interior decoration, green roof installation, installation of a highly efficient heating system, energy-efficient filling of window and door openings .
There are no fundamental differences from traditional buildings here. The number and dimensions of the openings are preliminarily provided by the frame and are mounted after the construction of the walls. Of course, it is advisable to choose wooden frames, because this corresponds to the ecological status of the thatched house, but if you wish, you can put plastic windows and armored doors.
Roof, attic, floor
If the project of the house provides a powerful roof with an attic, then the roof frame of the corresponding standard is pre-erected. The roof frame can be either wooden or metal. Usually the top frame corresponds to the bottom. After that, the frame is blocked by laying facade material for every taste: slate, tile, wood, resin, metal or lump . In a thatched house, the roof should be let out as far as possible from the wall. Such an element will provide better protection of the walls from getting wet during rains. Keep in mind the ventilation that goes through the roof. If the house is 2 or 3 floors, then the overlap between the levels provide a powerful base of wood.
Compressed straw itself has a strength that is not only inferior to the strength of a brick, but also the walls of the house breathe. Also, the straw blocks themselves are a natural soundproofing floor, so the issue of sound insulation is decided by itself. As for the tightness of the joints between the blocks, and this is an important aspect in construction, here, with a competent approach, straw construction is not inferior to traditional building. As for the solution-free laying of blocks, correctly dimensioned sizes and quality of reinforcing fasteners will guarantee maximum tightness between the blocks.
Heat and hydro Insulated
A correctly made straw block initially has a thermal conductivity of 7-8 times lower than brick, and 4 times lower than many types of wood. On average, the heat resistance of walls of straw blocks is 4 times higher than the current standards of many countries. And according to the calculations of some experts, energy consumption for heating such a house may even be needed up to 9 times less! In general, the technologies for thermal regulation of such an eco-house are even richer than those of brick or wooden analogues: from passive solar panels to a heat collector or heat accumulators .
There are many rumors about the weaknesses of fire safety of straw structures, but experience and numerous studies prove that such opinions are absolutely false. The straw itself does burn, and this is a well-known fact. But in the case of finished straw blocks, the situation is completely different. Firstly, there is not enough oxygen in the pressed straw for combustion. After all, paper also burns well, but if you burn a whole book or a mountain of cardboard without auxiliary combustible materials, it is unlikely that something will come of it. Secondly, many modern technologies add clay clay or ecological heat-resistant glue to straw, which also minimizes the possibility of ignition. And thirdly, if you use the frame-panel construction of the blocks, then the correct facade processing of the panel also plays an important role in fire safety. All wooden facade elements can be treated with an anti-flammable agent. High-quality wall plastering itself also reduces the risk of fire. So with the right approach, a triple guarantee of fire safety in the operation of thatched houses is guaranteed.
Reliability and durability
Such houses, built around the planet, are worth more than a hundred years and at the same time function perfectly. In addition, after passing into disrepair, thatched houses are quite simply disposed of without harm to the environment. Many of the thatched houses are intentionally located in difficult climatic and seismically active zones, and have proven themselves in earthquakes and hurricanes. The fact is that compressed straw blocks themselves cannot crack or break like bricks or concrete, because straw is not a homogeneous material. Studies have shown and proved that the pressed panel is up to 4 times stronger than traditional brick! And if you add more quality carcass and facade materials, then the strength increases. Such indicators completely break the straw house myth!
