‘Natural’ for a lifetime
Wood, as a natural product, is used throughout centuries as a construction material. Over the years new techniques were developed in combination with other building materials (stone, metal, concrete) but also on its own in autonomous wooden constructions. Timelessness of wood is acceptable and in modern construction as a long life choice that bears no problems. It also constitutes the ideal solution for bioclimatic and ecological homes
Lumber for wood framework comes for controlled forests logging is legal. During manufacturing and installation eco-friendly paintings, insulation material and non toxic silicones are used. Our products bear the sign of “blue angel” which signify that they are completely friendly towards the environment and humans and they also carry non toxicity certificates.
Wood frames that are manufactured according to European standards, like ergomasif wood frames, provide excellent thermal insulation compared to conventional ones, thus contributing to saving energy and fight global warming. Ergomasif wood frames have a positive CO2 emition.
Many times PVC of aluminum frames are presented as better and less expensive, due to the original minimal cost of purchase. Studies have showed that this is true only in short term, as these studies are based solely on a short term analysis. Scientists have conducted studies comparing costs between natural and synthetic material over time passing. Result: The costs of wooden frames are, in the long run, smaller compared to those of conventional materials, such as medal of PVC.
Wooden frames life expectancy is at least three times as much compared to respective materials.
Wear and tear of wooden frames can be fixed to its original status, while conventional products usually require replacement.
Wood frames are suitable when it comes to fire protection due to their high endurance and non-flammable products use. In case of a fire they burn at a slower pace remaining at the same time solid and firm.
