Envilop is a curtain wall system based on the wood. Lightweight exterior wall module system was developed under the project Intelligent Buildings (CZ.1.05/3.1.00/13.0283) Operational Programme Research and Development for Innovation which is funded by the EU and the government of the Czech Republic.
Envilop can be used as a substitution for old, metallic light-weight curtain walls used on buildings from the sixties of the twentieth century in Central and Eastern Europe.
The Envilop concept is protected by utility model PUV 2013-28513 owned by University Center of Energy Efficient Buildings of Technical University in Prague.
The commercial licence to Envilop will be offered to the public during summer 2015. The future producer will obtain all the documents, acredited tests results and the technical support by UCEEB.
There was a number of special quality materials based on wood used for Envilop: main frame is made of laminated veneer timber, the outer covering is made of hard wood fibre board; the external elements in the contact with the weather is made from heat treated Thermowood without need of maitenance. Thermal bridgers are minimized by usage of cork, aerogel or vacuum insulation.
