The technology behind building RIKO HIŠE’s prefabricated wooden buildings meets the high standards of sustainable construction and is energy efficient, earthquake and fire safe. In addition to being ecological and economical, the RIKO HIŠE construction systems excel in individuality, high quality of living and the possibility to make advanced architectural solution come true.
Be it either a solid wood construction or a wood frame construction, the construction systems are completely flexible and enable perfect adaptability to the demands and the expectations of the client.
Large prefabricated wall elements, which are assembled on the field, are insulated already during their production, finished with a façade and have built-in builders’ joinery. Other construction units are connected to external walls, such as mezzanine and roof constructions, canopies, pergolas, stairs, etc. Prefabricated elements enable quick construction and allow you to move in fast.
The façade is an external layer of the building, which functions as protection of the construction units, in addition to having a decorative-visual effect. The façade protects the building from external effects, because it takes the mechanical and weather burdens, such as wind, rain, snow, frost, solar radiation, etc.
Façades are generally divided into two groups:
- Ventilated façades: wood, metal, stone, artificial materials
- Non-ventilated façades: or thin-layered plaster façades
Types of wood façades differ from each other by their shape or profile. It is possible to choose from several basic types of wooden cladding which, in combination with other types of covering (horizontal, vertical, diagonal), offer numerous implementation options.
