Title: The Solid Wood Wall for Home Construction
A solid wood wall is an ecological solution for house building. It consists of 24 mm thick dried planks of any width. The boards are enhanced with many 3 x 3 mm notches on one side, pressed lengthwise and crosswise, and joined layer by layer with aluminum pins to wall elements in sizes from 1.5 m x 1.5 m to 3.25 m x 6 m and in thicknesses from 11.5 to 34 cm. At the CNC portal processing line, the element is formatted and the required holes for windows and doorways are made. In addition, bores for transport, recesses for plumbing, heating and electric lines and outlets are cut under computer control. The whole production process produces no waste water and no pollution of the soil, water or air. Accumulated dust and wood waste are used for the generation of heat and electricity.
