Lignotrend cross-laminated timber components are constructed as web and box elements. Through with spaces between the lamellae, an increased exchange area for the air is created, which is about twice as large as the wall or ceiling surface itself. A very large part of the whole installed wood mass is thereby activated for the room climate regulation.
For the wood’s moisture-regulating ability to be active, it must be in contact with the room air. Between the interior and the timber there must be no vapour-tight layers (vapour barriers or foils). made of LIGNO components are designed permeable on the room-facing side. They can take up moisture from the room and return it again to the room. Claddings, e.g. of plaster, are not disadvantageous to this exchange process that acts slowly over the seasons.
