Why should you choose VELOX building system for your next project?
The VELOX building system also features excellent sound and thermal insulation properties without thermal bridges – saving energy in the finished building. Both of these properties meet ecological requirements to save energy. Using natural materials ensures a healthy and hygienic living environment.
The graph opposite shows the relationship between the mean temperature of the inner surface of the walls and the middle of the room and representation of a feeling of thermal comfort. The relationship shows that the low temperature of the internal wall surface is very energy consuming. Surface temperatures on the inside walls of the VELOX build represent values from 20 to 21°C (according to the relative area of windows), i.e. In order to ensure thermal comfort in the building, room temperature should be maintained at 20°C.
Generally, the feeling of thermal comfort occurs when:
- The thermometer in a room shows 18 to 24°C
- The temperature difference between the inside of the perimeter wall and the room temperature is lower than 3°C
The VELOX building system meets these requirements with minimum consumption of thermal energy.
Example Schedule: Building a house with a usable attic space.
First day: Finished building; a concreted front row bearing and interior walls.
First week: Complete assembly of load-bearing walls and ceiling of the first floor, including the reinforcement and concreting.
3 to 4 week: Finished rough construction with VELOX and roof covered.
5th week: Continue further construction work on the completion of the building, similar to that of all building systems.
- For 1m² walls you only need 2 boards of VELOX
- 2 boards of VELOX replace 60 bricks or 10 concrete blocks
- 100m² of built up area (1 detached house, ground floor and attic) = 21t = 1 lorry load
- Brick and block < Standard wall materials = 84t = 4 lorry loads
VELOX Building system satisfies:
Designers: Variability of use and functionality
Investors: Economy, efficiency and cost structures
Builders: Speed and precision construction of buildings
End user: Low operating costs and ease of ecological housing
Installation of formwork and pouring concrete is done on site. VELOX boards and foam polystyrene provides excellent thermal and sound insulation, concrete provides structural strength and thermal accumulation. The result is a monolithic sandwich with excellent conditions for living.
The basis of ecologically produced VELOX boards are natural materials - wood chips (89%), which are associated with cement to ensure consistency and strength are complemented with a solution of water glass, which increases the resistance of the boards against moisture, rot and rodents.
Concrete buildings are stable and have a long life, so the quality of the house can appreciate over generations. There are other companies that offer systems for building houses, but none offer the unique range of benefits that VELOX has. If you would like to learn more about VELOX contact us today.
