National technical assessment NTĮ-01-061:2013 published in Lithuania for Ecococon. Wooden frame panels with straw insulation

Written by esba

The technical approval is intended for timber frame external panels with a thermal insulation layer of straw manufactured by UAB Ecococon. The panel is made up of a supporting wooden frame filled with a pressed straw bale layer. The panels are manufactured in a factory without the inner and outer layers of finish. These layers are installed after installation on site. At the customer’s request, the mixture of dry clay plaster for the interior wall surface decoration produced by the manufacturer may be supplied along with the panels.

Specification of materials and components used for the panel manufacturer is provided in Annex 1. The general view of the wooden frame of the panel is provided in Annex 2. Panels are made separately for each individual building. In general, the wooden panel frame is designed so that only small incisions or shaping have to be made on-site, which does not affect the structural and mechanical durability of the entire enclosure design.
