HEARTWOOD FOR HEALTHY INDOOR AIR
Constructed using real logs and wood fibre insulation, the Ekorex wall structure combines the natural qualities of log with excellent construction properties.
Carefully selected heartwood timbers make Ekorex an excellent construction material that holds its integrity decade after decade. The vertical frame facilitates a range of
different construction solutions that will last without sinking for decades to come. An Ekorex house holds is value and style from generation to generation.
The wall structure functions like natural wood and features insulation paper instead of plastic. Heat loss is minimised,
as the finely graded wood fibre insulation fills all gaps and adheres to the structure.
Logs have the natural ability to store heat and release it into indoor air as needed.
As a material, they utilise both sunlight and the own heating energy of the house by storing heat in the structures and releasing it back into indoor air. Your home is pleasantly
warm in the winter and comfortably cool in the summer. The insulating capacity of logs is excellent. They are already an adequate heat insulator as such – even during the
coldest winter spells.
Log houses are an integral part of the Finnish landscape and building tradition. Thanks to their unique properties, logs can be used to build comfortable, safe and healthy
homes. This extremely energy-efficient material keeps housing costs under control. When built and maintained properly, log buildings last for centuries. Of all construction
materials, logs require the least amount of energy to be manufactured. Therefore, emissions, waste loads and transport-related problems are minimised.
When you acquire a log house, you make a sustainable choice on many levels.
HIGH-QUALITY INDOOR AIR
Logs are a truly breathing construction material. Ventilation occurs naturally, and both moisture and the amount of carbon dioxide remain optimal. At the same time, wood also
filters and cleans the air flow. During the winter, logs release moisture when indoor air dries up and bind excess moisture when air humidity increases.
As a result, air humidity is 25–45 per cent, all structures stand the test of time and indoor air problems are conspicuous by their absence.
