Building physics in modular construction
Building physics properties for modular buildings are easily the equal of those offered by conventionally constructed buildings. Fire prevention and sound and thermal insulation meet the prescribed or desired levels in system assembly, ensuring that modular buildings meet the standards valid in each country or region.
The country-specific requirements and standards for fire prevention, such as DIN 4102, for example, are met in standardised ALHO modular buildings, and fire prevention classes between F30 and F120 can be reached. The results are repeatedly confirmed by ongoing in-house fire tests and by independent reports from reputable fire prevention institutions.
When it comes to thermal insulation, ALHO modular buildings naturally meet all the requirements of the relevant country-specific standards with a correspondingly high level of component insulation. Renewable energies such as solar power, photovoltaics or combined power-heat systems can also be integrated into modular buildings without any problems.
ALHO modular buildings provide very good sound insulation as an integral component of the system. The double-shell wall and ceiling system means that the relevant sound insulation requirements can easily be met. Generally, the sound insulation values measured in the completed modular building are actually much better than the values required by law, both between the storeys and between different rooms on the same level.
