Construction Frame-panel houses can build as big houses and cheap holiday homes, superior in quality characteristics, and not inferior in the appearance of brick houses. To increase spans the premises, making the construction of frame-panel houses, can also be used laminated beams. For insulation, usually used mineral wool made of glass (Ursa, Isover) or from the rock (Rockwool). 150-mm layer of insulation (at a rate of 125 mm) provides a full year-round comfort. As the wind protection during the construction of frame-and-panel house used fibreboard or chipboard. Interior and exterior finishing depends on the customer. That frame-panel houses were among the few buildings that survived the earthquake in Kyoto, after which the Japanese lost their past skeptical feelings about such houses and started building them in droves. Special word should be said about a heater.
In the skeleton-timber frame homes is a crucial element. It is placed between the uprights of the framework. Insulation is a kind of skeleton-filled panel house, the inside of the sandwich. As a heater, as a rule, use slabs of mineral wool. During the construction of frame-panel houses in central Russia thickness of insulation is usually about 15 cm in thickness so even the best insulators have excess resistance to heat – up to 3.6 (at a rate of 3.2 for the Moscow region) – that is can be used successfully and farther north. Today's lagging in its heat-shielding properties are equivalent to two-meter thick masonry. The walls have a layered structure. On the inside of a cage stacked plate heater and sealed vapor barrier film, excluding the ingress of moisture vapor in the wall of the room, because the increase in humidity insulation only 1% reduces its insulating properties at 30%.
