Building with Kerto LVL elements
Flexible, sustainable and beautiful buildings besides revaluating the existing building stock. We should listen to the end-users for whom we build and offer flexibility for the wishes of the next generation. This means buildings should be built differently.
Maskerade® offers a wooden frame from Kerto LVL beams and studs with a long-term vision on flexibility, where people can create their own environment.
The Maskerade® building method
The Maskerade® building method is industrially produced by assembling [large] prefabricated elements for floors, walls and facades. This results in a short building process and a highly-controlled quality. The frame supplies the aesthetic, constructive and technical base. The various finishing options (such as: arrangement, installations and finishing) makes the frame complete. The separation of frame and finishing increases a building’s viability and guarantees you a long term of exploitation [ >100 Years…...…...].
The exterior of a Maskerade building should always fit within its surroundings and should have a high feel-good content.
Freedom of design and use are at the core of this method. The system gives architects and builders facilities by using the Maskerade® library of details in their own practice.
Maskerade is a modular system tuned on [standard] structural possibilities of KERTO LVL.The system is based on a vertical way of building and enables you to build up to 5 stories within a day….both wind and waterproof!
A signature characteristic of the Maskerade building construction is that the floors are imposed in a slot in the wall and façade. In this way, the walls and facades can be stacked so the shrinking in the construction is avoided and the stability improved. *]
The key element in the construction is the Flexvloer ®. This floor element has a standard span of 7,5m and a width of 2,5m. The controlled production allows a very rigid floor with excellent comfort for the user. The wall and façade elements have a standard height of 3,5 m. The floor, wall and façade elements are all prefabricated including insulation, glazed windows and installations.
Maskerade is a modular system tuned on the [standard] constructive KERTO LVL offers.
*] In case of earthquakes or a heavy storm, Maskerade cab guarantees the necessary strength by stabilizing the nodes and other connections.
To guarantee a continuous quality, the system MASKERADE offers a library and 3D-BIM models. The developed design aspects and details have proved themselves in practise during the last decade and are now usable for all kinds of circular buildings.
Maskerade is a vapour permeable and air-tight building system. To improve the comfort in winter and summer a cellulose isolation is injected in the walls, façade, roof and ground floor. Because of this, the building temperature and humidity is constant and gives a comfortable, healthy indoor environment.
The glued insulation and acoustics are secured in the finish of the Flexvloer® and the slot in the walls and facades.
