Cross laminated timber
NOVATOP is a complete building system with components made from large-scale cross-laminated solid wood (CLT – Cross laminated timber). The components NOVATOP get a complete system, which greatly facilitate the project preparation and the implementation itself.
NOVATOP components are made from dried spruce plates fold up in layers, each layer is rotated to each other by 90 ˚. The number of layers can be different and determines the final thickness of the panel. All components are characterized by high strength and stability under compressive stress and tension and extreme static load capacity. Due to the drying and gluing technology the components show the dimensional stability and changes in humidity.
Three basic structural elements
NOVATOP offers three basic structural elements: SOLID, which easily solves mainly the design of load-bearing walls and partitions, ELEMENTS – components with sophisticated ribbed design intended mainly for the construction of ceilings and roofs. And thirdly STATIC – large thin plates for construction of roof overhangs and large span bridge.
What enables NOVATOP?
Designing a modern and innovative projects. NOVATOP is suitable for construction of family houses and apartment buildings, office buildings, industrial buildings, but also for renovations, additions, extensions, etc. The sophistication of the system is designed to meet a variety of projects – from the partial delivery to a comprehensive solution to rough construction inc. the roof.
Panels NOVATOP are “sewed to measure”, that means they are made in the exact format, with working links, with openings for windows and doors and other individual adjustments like preparation routes for distribution and completion of thermal, acoustic and fire insulation. The system corresponds to today’s trends in energy-efficient and passive buildings, airtight is guaranteed, creating a diffusion open structure, can solve such transmission noise. Unique is the use of wood in a visible quality of the final design and planning.
NOVATOP is processed mainly of czech coniferous wood under strict environmental regulations, the production process meets the strict criteria for a number of certifications. incl.internationally recognized “Natureplus”. The wood is dried to about 8% moisture content, which ensures a high stability of the components and prevents cracks. For formatting and processing components we use the latest CNC equipment, which operates according to CAD data, and the entire production process is controlled digitally. All components are manufactured in the Czech Republic, the system was developed and tested in Switzerland (to develop a system was also involved in Hermann Blumer, a Swiss expert on wood construction).
The input materials are certified Natureplus.
