PATENTED NON-SETTLING LOG STRUCTURE
MODERN AND MAINTENANCE-FREE LOG HOUSES WITH A NON-SETTLING STRUCTURE
NON-SETTLING STRUCTURES MULTIPLIES THE POSSIBILITIES OF LOG CONSTRUCTION
Wood is a natural material that is characterised by its reactivity to the surrounding temperature and air humidity. After construction, log frames shrink a few centimetres during the first few years. Traditionally, this has been taken into account in log construction by leaving a settling margin in the structures.
Polar Life Haus patented non-settling log structures are the right solution when you want a modern-looking, maintenance-free log house. When implemented with a special peg and screw technique, the log wall does not settle, so the use of settling boards and adjustment of legs is unnecessary. The structure also allows HTWS glass windows, extending from the floor to the ceiling, to be safely connected to the log structure, thus leading to the possibility of implementing even more demanding architectural solutions using solid wood. The house has a sleek finish.
Our extensive experience in implementing demanding structures guarantees a high-quality end result
We built the first log house with a non-settling structure already in 2001, and our non-settling log structure was patented in 2016. Our traditions of more than one hundred years in wood machining have produced an in-depth understanding of wood processing and the opportunities it provides.
Polar Life Haus’ non-settling structure differs significantly from that of other manufacturers. Instead of CLT, vertical lamellas or cross-gluing, we use our own patented peg and screw technique. Its benefits include the fact that the log wall remains straight and of high quality and does not curve even in varying weather conditions. The technique can be used with any solid laminated log that has a width of 200 mm or more.
Combined with the softline and sharpline profiles of the Polar Life Haus houses, the non-settling structure maintains a neat appearance, as the profile’s longer-than-normal design hides the gaps between the logs resulting from the natural transformation of the wood.
