WHAT ARE MODULAR HOUSES?
- Modular houses are
manufactured in the factory and consist of modules - repeatable sections. Modular
houses are built in the factory by assembling materials together into one
element that can be combined with another module home element model, creating
multiple modular home spaces and more complex designs. The modular house
consists of a floor, walls, roof, which are joined together and finished at the
- The modular house
is transported to the construction site, where the construction of the building
requires the help of a construction faucet and the last assembly works are done.
The modular house is transported by a lorry to construction sites, and the
construction process on site is minimized due to the completed work of modular
houses. This in turn reduces the potential impact of the weather conditions
compared to the on-site construction process. Connecting a modular home can
take from a few hours to a few days. The result is a high-quality, sealed and
energy-efficient modular house.
- The modular house
combination variations are endless, e.g. putting one row in the same row, side
by side, etc.
Modular houses advantages:
- Low Construction
Costs. The main advantage of a
modular home is that construction requires less money than brick or other construction
houses. Thanks to the modular houses being light but at the same time very
durable, it is not necessary to build the foundation from massive and expensive
- Also, you do not
need to invest large amounts of money in the interior finishing of your home,
because the walls and ceilings of our homes are already made of beams or
finishing boards, which only need to be painted. The modular houses are industrial
completion rate contributes to reducing work, job monitoring and financial
resources. The modular design features ensure that floors, walls, roofs,
rafters and ceilings can be combined at the same time as a whole form. This, of
course, cannot be started on a full-cycle construction site - for example, it
is not possible to put the roof rafters before the finished load-bearing walls.
Thus, the manufacturing process for modular houses comparing the modular house
with the construction of a wooden frame on the square is reduced by half.
- Modular houses can
be "built" in remote areas where the cost of a home construction
would be higher due to transport costs. Likewise, a modular house is
advantageous in those cases where a shelter suitable for living is required
- Quick installation
and return on investment: The modular house's industrial completion level
contributes to reducing work, job monitoring, and financial resources. Features
of the modular house ensures that floor, walls, roof, rafters and ceilings can
be produced at the same time, which are combined together as one whole form. This,
of course, cannot be started on a full-cycle construction site - for example,
it is not possible to put the roof rafters before the finished load-bearing
walls. Thereby, the manufacturing process for modular houses comparing the
modular house with the construction of a wooden frame on the square is reduced
- Energy Efficiency:
None of the building materials like brick or concrete in terms of energy
efficiency is comparable to wood. Thanks to our construction technology,
insulation materials, the house can be warmed up faster in winter and keeps the
heat longer. In the summer, however, the premises are kept cool, because our
thick external walls do not heat up from the heat of the sun. Wooden modular
houses allow a significant reduction in heating costs, as well as comfort in
the home. For our modular homes, the heating rate does not exceed 20-49 kWh per
1m2 per year.
interior design, roof slopes, ceiling heights, exterior wall and interior wall
design can differ depending on customer preferences and needs. There is no
- The efficient use
of materials in the production process ensures low waste. When building a
modular house, the amount of materials required, the size and number of
materials provided by modular home projects are known.
- Quality: As each
modular home module is transported separately to a construction site, it must
meet the transportation and installation requirements as a whole. Because each
module is durable itself, the set of modules is stronger than a fully built-in
- Modular house
improved air quality: Moisture levels in structures directly affect air quality
in new buildings. Since modules are manufactured industrially using dry,
appropriate materials and the environment cannot be influenced by them, modular
home constructions maintain a minimal, permissible humidity level.
WHAT IS ENERGY
- The building's
energy efficiency is the amount of heat and electricity that provides the
process of living (heating, ventilation, lighting, hot water, etc.) in the
- Energy efficiency
is the ratio between the product or service obtained and the energy consumed.
The essence of energy efficiency improvement is to reduce the amount of energy
consumed in the production of goods and services without reducing their
quality. Energy-efficient solutions allow manufacturers to decrease product
costs and save the society from the large expenses of the services they
We use ECO wool for
insulation of our home.
- ECO Wool is
surprisingly effective, high quality and ecological heat insulation material.
Eco-wool is made from cellulose fiber (81% sorted waste paper) and natural salt
admixtures (12% flame retardant and 7% antiseptic). ECO Wool is a harmless
material used for insulation of residential, public and industrial buildings as
well as in renovated buildings and new projects. Ecowool has been used in the
US, Canada, Finland and other countries of the world for more than 70 years.
- The technical
characteristics of the eco-wool - heat control, air permeability, moisture
resistance, sound insulation and fire safety - surpass all the traditional
thermal insulation materials!
- ECO Wool is a very
effective thermal insulation. Thermal conductivity coefficient λ=0,039W/mK. It
cases the house, blocking air leaks that lead to heat loss. Ecowool creates a
dense, non-seam filling, evenly spreads even in narrow and hard-to-reach
building structures (e.g. near pipes and wires). Its thermal insulation
properties are even slightly higher than those of stone wool or glass wool.
- Due to the density
of the material, the Ecowool has a low air permeability of 80-120 x 10m3
(30.6-40.0 kg / m3). During the ECO Wool process, the material contains
numerous small, closed air pockets that effectively slow down the air movement.
- Thanks to the ECO
Wool complete set of technical properties and its flame retardant, ECO Wool
meets the fire safety class B1 (blazing hard). Under the influence of open
flame, the fire retardant releases crystalline water, which dampens the flame
and reduces the amount of oxygen, so the eco-wool becomes fire-resistant,
preventing the fire from spreading, while protecting the building's wooden
constructions. It is also important that during the fire the ECO Wool does not
release substances harmful to human health.
- Moisture control.
In winter, outdoor air temperatures are low and there is less water vapor than
indoor air. The vapors that occur indoors as a result of human life's activity
are moving to the coldest side of the wall, thus trying to level the vapor
concentration in the air. If vapors can escape freely through the walls, the
wall will not get wet, but if the vapor is blown away by the water vapor-tight
layer, moisture will condense inside the wall and moisten the wall. ECO Wool
insulated constructions are protected from rotting and harmful fungi. Thermal
insulation ECO Wool provides a healthy microclimate indoors and allows your
home to breathe.

- At a time of rising
energy prices, ECO Wool is an excellent choice for thermal insulation to reduce
your winter heating and conditioning costs in the summer.
- ECO Wool and its
perfect installation will significantly reduce the cost of repairing if you
want to insulate it behind the plaster without removing it, as well as avoiding
the inadequate cutting of traditional thermal insulation materials.
- By using ECO Wool
in the construction process you will save time, resources for the workforce, as
well as the cost of the thermal insulation material, because there are no
surpluses in the process of ecowooling so there is no waste collection costs.
- ECO Wool is a safe
and environmentally friendly thermal insulation material! It is not harmful to
the production process, nor does it work in your house. The energy used in the
production process of ecowool is significantly less than that of traditional

burn or melt, but prevents the spread of flames, thus giving time to fire and
to save the people and building!
