The MHM construction material

Massiv-Holz-Mauer® Air-channel

Building with the best values: 10 advantages of MHM at a glance

  1. Pure wood
    Our solid wood wall units are modelled on our indigenous trees. They require neither glue nor chemical treatment. The Massiv-Holz-Mauer® consists of dried softwood joined together by fluted aluminium nails to form a solid, vapour permeable wall.

  2. Recycling value
    The Massiv-Holz-Mauer® is easy to reuse and can be directly released for recycling at the end of its life cycle. The elements can thus serve future generations as CO2-neutral fuel in the form of wood chips.

  3. Solid and safe
    The Massiv-Holz-Mauer® is rated and certified as fire safety class REI 90 and has tested sound levels. The dimensional stability of wood also speaks for the Massiv-Holz-Mauer.

  4. Eligible construction
    Banks and insurance companies frequently offer favourable terms on sustainable and secure building projects. The short installation time and various funding opportunities tailored to the energy class help ensure low construction costs.

  5. Positive energy balance
    Thanks to its special design, MHM achieves remarkably high insulation properties that by far surpass regular solid wood. In the total lifetime energy balance of your building (energy used in production, transportation, construction, occupation and demolition), the Massiv-Holz-Mauer® outperforms any other material by some distance.

  6. Comfortable interior atmosphere
    Through the use of dried wood and no adhesive or grout whatsoever, a dry and comfortable atmosphere is immediately perceptible in a MHM building right from the start. The material balances out temperature fluctuations and so regulates the interior atmosphere.

  7. Individual floor plan
    If you have an unusual floor plan in mind, Massiv-Holz-Mauer® is the perfect answer because its versatility makes any floor plan possible – there are no restrictive grid patterns. Additional advantages are the freedom of choice in the wall geometry, in the individual design of the facade and in the insulation standard.

  8. Exact manufacturing
    The Massiv-Holz-Mauer® is manufactured with a specially developed MHM production line in sawmills or carpentry shops. Your floor plan is designed using CAD software and manufactured with computer-controlled machine tools. The high degree of prefabrication guarantees simple, fast and safe installation of your building shell.

  9. Quick to erect
    Your MHM house or MHM building is prefabricated by specialists and it takes only about 2-3 days to erect a private house. That shortens the site time for cranes and scaffolding.

  10. Flexible interior finishing
    The MHM wall can still be easily processed on the construction site. Any possible modifications such as e.g. power sockets can thus be easily reworked. We recommend semi-natural materials for interior finishing to further support the positive properties of wood as a natural material, such as its permeability.
