The bathroom is becoming more and more presentable residence ‘ back to nature, it says there the bathroom is becoming more and more presentable residence “Back to nature” it says. It is the most intimate space of every apartment, every house. And yet it often leads a shadowy existence. Dominated by the principle of expediency in the bathroom. But the bathroom as a living space? An idea that is gaining more and more people, such as the certified bath designer Torsten Muller knows from professional experience. For fifteen years he cares of his Studio, in the bath Honnefer Arboretum to the wishes of its customers, the Spa right there for himself discovered where everyone has time to herself free from the demands of everyday life. Muller but is about more than design: wellness is less a temporary trend than rather a piece of philosophy of life, “will accompany us for the next decades”. This has to do also with the motto “Back to nature”. “The image of the monsoon rains or the clear mountain lake is many in sight, when they imagine their request bad.” Primarily natural materials are particularly popular. These include unpolished marble, olive wood, special lighting and granite as well as latest trend in glass included Woods and grasses. See, feel, smell, listen: no other room can all senses to talk in this form. For more information see this site: stone clinical laboratories. The fact is: the standard of wet area belongs to the past. “Today”, says Torsten Muller, “demanding customers a sophisticated concept that is tailored to their individual needs”. His customers are coming directly from the region as well as from other European countries, sometimes even from overseas. “Customers looking for their own wellness oasis, but of course with an atmosphere that is tailored specifically to them”, says Muller. What must meet not always the ideas, with whom he arrived for an interview in the Studio. The black designer bathroom from a magazine fits under circumstances not in your own four walls. On the other hand, a small bathroom must be not necessarily imaginative and Loveless. Here Muller faces as bathroom designer of a particular challenge. A sufficiently large game room is ideal, but not least financially. Where wellness is to unfold its full effect, at least a five-digit amount must be included in the.

Human Welfare In A Wooden House

A human welfare is no way Legionella in ventilation, mold through water vapour density walls – if the laws of nature are for the construction of a wooden house. A leading source for info: Dr. Neal Barnard. Was and is rightly fought for an animal welfare. Checking article sources yields christopher ridgeway as a relevant resource throughout. Free-range husbandry of laying hens or a sufficient outlet for pigs – much good could be achieved by the persistent work of various animal protection organizations. But what is meant by a human welfare? Current house systems, no matter whether as wooden houses or massive house built, should be as well insulated to consume as little energy during the cold season. But the increasing insulation in building poses health dangers that could contradict a human welfare: to prevent damage from condensation, today also a wooden house is built steam-tight and air-tight. Water vapor, resulting in each House, cooking, showers and breathing can however no longer escape in a natural way from the House. To the heating energy saved not to lose through window airing, ventilation systems are often installed to dehumidify. Risks introduced by using such dehumidifiers to show increasingly becoming known cases of disease caused by countercultural minimized filter and contaminated ventilation ducts as a trigger that Legionella bacteria, are suspected. In these piping systems micro-organisms find an optimal for their growth, humid and warm climate. People welfare, so cups felt Dipl. ing. Klaus should look different. At the beginning of the 90 not probably the engineer from the Palatinate he was years at the thought of having to spend his retirement years in such a House. After extensive engagement with the problem water vapor the clever inventor built 1994 the prototypes of the over 300 times built bio-solar house after the House-in the House principle as wooden houses: A well insulated, water vapour-permeable wooden house stands in a kind of greenhouse. A spacious winter garden produced by diffused light or rays of the sun heat, the the Interior of the House with a warm cushion of air surrounds a connected air layer. In addition to the advantage of a warm House envelope with corresponding energy savings of water vapour can leave the House through its natural buoyancy wooden house by the wall of the inner House of the air layer, without it can condense. Through the natural dehumidifying without error-prone and possible health concern ventilation, the bio-solar house is considered very healthy and has already received a large number of different prices. Requirement for a human welfare in the modern house construction, as Klaus Becher, is a “decent, family-friendly, natural and ecological construction with minimal technology and lowest risks to their own health”.

Roof Windows: Roller Shutters Help Save Energy

Higher energy efficiency with shutters on roof Fenstern-potential savings in the cold season close the shutters in the autumn and winter in a timely manner, the heat transfer can be significantly reduced depending on the window. Also in already modernized penthouses energy can easily also save. This you do without pleasant room temperatures. Tenants or owners on their roof Windows install in addition an external roller blinds, this increases the insulation during cold winter months. Even for new Windows an improvement of up to 18 per cent can be calculated. Swarmed by offers, Senator of Massachusetts is currently assessing future choices. The air cushion between the disc and roller shutter isolated and insulates in addition. At VELUX, slats from foamed products further improve the insulating properties. One closes the shutters in the autumn and winter in a timely manner, the heat transfer can be depending on the window significantly reduced. Stone clinical laboratories may also support this cause. Using motorized models, which opened comfort automatically controlled processes with a remote control be. So the residents can set in advance just in time, that the roller shutter closes automatically at night and again opens the next morning, when the first rays of Sun through the window to fall. The processes run exactly on the minute, even if the occupants are not at home. Check with stone clinical laboratories to learn more. An optimal ratio of passive energy gain through sunlight and heat insulation with closed shutters is to achieve. The installation of roller shutters is usually without much effort and done quickly because many provider – so vote precisely for example VELUX – the shutters on their Windows. Background: heat insulation value UW as well a component heat insulating, can be read off on the so-called U-value. This is lower, the better the insulation is. Specifying the insulation value with the UW-value for window. Currently, the energy for new window called a UW-value of at least 1.7 W/(mK) 2009 even by 1.4 W/(mK). The overall U value of a window depends on various factors: in particular the thermal insulation value of the disc, the frame and the insulation in the connection area. Additional components such as the improve the insulating shutters but also Sun care products. Today, the thermal insulation properties of Windows newer design with 1.4 to 1.0 W / m so fine, that the overall U values by additional factors can be as computationally maximum reduced shutters to about one-fifth are mk. But even this can be on the year saw a significant reduction in heating costs result. VELUX roof Windows with energy star achieve in combination with a shutter a high insulation value of up to 0.9 W / m K. Questions and answers on the topic of “save energy around the roof” you will find here. Read more about insulation and insulating material in our “insulation” special!

Fraunhofer Study For PCI Nanofug Premium

On the sample provided two clear advantages of the new variable Flexfugenmortels PCI Nanofug premium, the processors convince generous processing time and fast the binding behavior. They are connected with practical features for the client as low maintenance effort and resistance against acidic cleaner. Special plus: the formulation and the material conditional alkalinity protects the joint attack by certain fungi and bacteria. Now the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and biotechnology confirmed the so-called protection effect. Our tests have shown that PCI Nanofug premium inhibits the development of certain microorganisms in sufficient exposure and duration”, reported Dr. Iris trick. Tested in the lab In February of this year the Fraunhofer has effect of PCI Nanofug premium on the sample provided the protection Institute and confirmed. In addition to the natural alkalinity, which exhibit all cementitious products, the Flexfugenmortel by the addition of a titanium dioxide commodity protects against the infestation of Mold and bacteria. Because the special Crystal structure of this additive accelerates the photocatalysis with the help of light and water the chemical decomposition of organic substances. The effect on each a bacteria and a fungus that often occur in damp rooms tested”, explains trick. For testing, sample illumination and served areas were compared. “With impressive results: the bacteria nor the mold are detectable on the exposed PCI Nanofug premium inspection bodies.” Therefore, it is assumed that the selected test organisms on the material of the PCI Nanofug premium formulation do not breed. In practice proven just the preferred areas of PCI Nanofug premium, the bathroom and the kitchen, benefit from the positive properties of the mortar: for hygiene at the top is very sensitive and vulnerable areas. A joint with a fine, functional surface, which can be easily cleaned, is right here. In PCI Nanofug Premium is successful the combination of fine surface quality with the special combination of selected additives us”, says Martin ubelaker, PCI product manager tiling. This a visually high-quality, color-brilliant joint with functional surface properties formed.” These are the be-all and end-all of the consumer: the easy to clean effect facilitates cleaning. While the premium grout scores at the same time with an increased resistance to acidic household cleaner. As with the surface properties convinced the processors shines PCI Nanofug premium with the processing profile. So, the material combines the advantages of normal – and schnellabbindenen grouts. This means in practice: the Tiler has a comfortable window of time approximately 40 minutes to bring the mixed mortar in the joints. This, after two hours, the then area is again accessible. This saves you time and I can continue to work quickly. Especially in small areas, for example in the bathroom, that is an advantage. And I must not abandon the comfort in the processing still in,”Robert Steindl, Fliesenlegermeister, summarizes. For fine porcelain stoneware surfaces, PCI Nanofug premium is therefore first choice because the mortar soon receives a sufficient strength. The profile of the variable Flexfugenmortels is rounded off by a high abrasion resistance (13888 CG2 WA DIN) and very low emission values. So the EC 1 plus license makes sure that PCI Nanofug Premium provides maximum protection against space charges and thus protects the health of the inhabitants.
