Going Green with STEKO®
STEKO® solid wood modules allow ecological living without the unpleasant humidity and are like your second skin that breathes and regulate the temperature and defuses moisture of the building which appears for years after construction. The regulation of temperature and humidity is via the pores and cells of the solid timber construction – just like the human skin. In winter the massive STEKO® walls work as a heat reservoir and in summer it keeps the interior comfortably cool.
In comparison to traditional construction, STEKO® walls do not need vapor barriers and sealing strips or barrier foils. STEKO® only works with solid wood (no plywood with toxic glues and nails).
In combination with the outstanding insulating qualities it ensures an unparalleled comfortable and healthy living climate. The wall construction is laid out ecological so that no wood protection materials are required. This too, is an important contribution to the healthy living.
Wood, unlike brick or other synthetic materials converts carbon dioxide into oxygen while growing, which makes a valuable contribution to reducing greenhouse effect in the atmosphere.
Wood is a material, which consumes minimal energy by treatment and guarantees low secondary and maintenance costs. And finally, STEKO® modules from solid wood can be easily re-used.
This makes wooden STEKO® modules an excellent choice for low energy or passive houses.
Reducing Waste. It’s a win for you, and a win for the environment.
STEKO® reduces waste, no off-cuts! Reducing waste has a dual advantage. It minimizes environmental impacts and saves you money.
Inefficient building sites produce astounding amounts of waste. When you reduce the amount of waste you produce, you proportionally reduce your costs. It doesn’t make sense to pay for something that you cut off and throw away. At STEKO® we understand that. Your STEKO® building system will arrive at the building site on wooden pallets. For every project there will be exactly the right number of modules, already cut to size. This means that there is no chance of over ordering and there will be no off-cuts and no cutting errors. By purchasing the exact number of modules required, you minimize waste, reduce your impact on the environment and save money.
Everybody wins with smart construction.
