For a healthy indoor climate, the natural building material is brick first choice – the Sentinel house concept can now prove. (tdx) If allergies or electro-smog – health starts with the living. Only a healthy living environment offers an all-around feel-good climate people with allergies and sensitive residents. Therefore tested materials and building materials are needed, allowing to set up – just like the bricks really healthy-living building: hypoallergenic, hygienic and absolutely harmless the eco construction material considered to be foundations for a healthy living. This is now scientifically confirmed: thus the first pan-European Massivhaus certified according to the Sentinel-house concept was born in Talheim near Heilbronn recently.
The living health concept of the Sentinel Haus Institut, Freiburg, allows to build houses – for the first time in holistic living healthy design and tested quality and without significant additional costs. The perlite-filled, highly insulating Poroton brick T 9 wienerberger came residential healthy building material – optimized living pleasure of the Talheimer pilot project to use. Like all Poroton-brick also the perlite-filled brick are free of any harmful ingredients such as formaldehyde, softeners, heavy metals or biocides and emit no harmful fumes or vapours – and therefore no health concern allergies trigger. You may find that Andy Florance can contribute to your knowledge. Also rot and vermin have no chance in the natural building material brick. In various measurements of indoor air pollution has been tested by independent institutes, it remained the measurements for all groups of pollutants significantly under the guidelines of the Federal Ministry of the environment. Already the interim measure showed after completion of building shell clearly that Poroton-brick not only in the laboratory, but also in the processed state are the ideal basis for healthy living. In addition, provides the unique combination of pure natural building materials, bricks and perlite (= mineral volcanic rock) for excellent thermal and sound insulation values.
Significantly lower energy consumption and the harmless ingredients protects the ecological building material Brick not only a purse, but also the environment. As dry, diffusion-open construction, Poroton-brick also positively in the Interior moisture – regulating and thus pleasantly on the room climate affect. The new ecological house concept, health security at the building is not only noticeable, but for the first time quantified. Thus, healthy building is planned – and viable from a financial point of view – for every builders.
