Construction of New Housing –
Fast, Flexible and Healthy
New buildings can be very quickly erected with SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB – and in top quality. The use of highly prefabricated panels greatly accelerates the process. Moreover, no time is lost waiting for installations to dry, so follow-on trades can start work right away. Complex floor plans, dormers and bay windows etc. can be realised with relatively little effort, so there is no need to restrain one’s creativity. Plus, the SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB system helps create a healthy indoor climate.
Vertical Extensions and Renovations –
Optimising Living Space
The large dimensions of SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB panels permit structures that transfer loads over a large area, which makes the system ideal for adding storeys and renovations. In addition, as it is a dry system, it avoids stressing existing structures. New living and work space can be used almost immediately. Acoustic insulation and fire protection are especially important in higher storeys, and SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB displays good properties with regard to both. It is even fairly easy to achieve excellent soundproofing, for example by acoustically uncoupling boards.
Industrial and Commercial Structures –
For everything from day care facilities for children across energy-efficient office buildings all the way to halls, the SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB construction system has proved its worth for meeting a vast range of needs in countless projects. Fast assembly and the ability to reliably meet deadlines are plus points that owner-builders greatly appreciate. Occupants also benefit from a very agreeable indoor climate throughout the year.
Urban Planning – Building on Empty Lots
Housing is becoming scarce in many cities, making it ever more important to find and build on remaining empty lots. Challenges are posed by the small size of many construction sites and the wish to visually integrate new buildings into an existing cityscape. Both can be easily mastered with SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB . The need to laboriously create large construction sites with areas for storing materials is largely eliminated, as the prefabricated SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB panels are delivered ready to install. Because assembly is speedily completed, nearby residents suffer less from road closures, noise and other annoyances. SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB is so flexible that new multi-storey buildings with a maximum of usable space can be easily adapted to existing architectural styles, façade designs and prescribed dimensions. SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB also meets the requirements for energy efficiency, acoustic and thermal insulation and fire protection across the board.
