Why a Kofinas house? | Kofinas

Best raw material of the global market

The constant masonry production of Kofinas Company provides the advantageous ability to proceed to great imports of constructive materials. Through this massive import, better costs are achieved by enabling the acquisition of ‘expensive’ (according to Greek construction standards), high quality constructive materials, in the Greek market.

Materials :

Masonry timber is : 

Σουηδική ξυλεία

  • Swedish: which means concrete
  • Pine: which means of greater resistance to humidity
  • Dried: which means that timber undergoes a drying procedure in special drying machines within a period that lasts some weeks. Additionally, wood gets disinfested in a completely natural way by avoiding the use of chemical substances (just like the case of green coloured timber). At the same time, humidity reaches the ideal level of 15-16% regarding the house construction.
  • Ecological: which means that timber does not contain chemical loads and the Swedish Wood Industry policy encourages the absorption of Carbon Dioxide
  • Planned: which means of perfectly smooth surfaces combined with the industrial joint connectivity and result in a successful splicing with zero joints in all construction parts of the house.
  • C24 class: meaning that it is of greater mechanical endurance by displaying an 80% higher ability, than that of the usual  timber of a common building.

OSB masonry Shield which is:

ξύλινη τοιχοποιία θωρακισμένη

  • Canadian factory made LP : meaning that it is of high mechanical endurance and ultimate quality worldwide. Not at all is it coincidental that this particular OSB material, is ranked as the first in terms of quality on a global scale and Kofinas provides it for the construction of your own house.
  • Waterproof : meaning that it works as a humidity block for the house.

Canexel Masonry Panel which is:

Επένδυση Ξύλινης Κατοικίας

the most highly evolved wooden protection panel made by LP, the pioneer industry in the construction of compοsite wooden products. LP Company has chosen Kofinas S.A as the exclusive distributor for both Greece and Cyprus.

  • Water resistant and durable: The canexel wall siding is manufactured using wood fibers, resin and wax. This engineered wood siding is highly stable, as well as highly resistant to moisture, with a 25 year warranty.
  • Presurfaced : meaning that the cover panel has been soaked into the colour of your own choice, out of the wide colour range of Kofinas company. This particular coating does not flake nor gets blurred so, that is why it is of a 15year guarantee.

Design for people with disabilities

AMEA

KOFINAS company can adapt any house design or create a new one from scratch, supporting the “design for all” fundamentals, ensuring access for people with disabilities.

Full Factory Construction

Kofinas Company involves the construction of each and separate masonry piece at the factory, by the use of TORX screws and the constant strict preservation of the following production steps : 
The factory construction line ensures the complete splicing of each masonry piece as well as the zero loosening throughout time.
 

Εξ ολοκλήρου εργοστασιακή κατασκευή

The already made parts of masonry act as monolithic bodies with the ability to withstand any level of oscillation. In this way, high seismic resistance is achieved and, above all, the robustness and durability of Kofinas Constructions.

Your house is NOT constructed on-site!

Kofinas Company remains a pioneer since the technical defects regarding the on-site masonry construction are already a part of the distant past.

Ready-made factory masonry

Μεταφορά και τοποθέτηση

The factory made masonry pieces are loaded on the company’s trucks and cranes which are later transferred to the site where they are clamped on the concrete base. The assembly is accomplished by a wall to wall procedure, within a minimum amount of time.

Levelling by the use of laser equipment
The masonry installation is achieved by the use of laser equipment which can corner and align the walls on a horizontal and vertical level with absolute accuracy.

Constant scientific and experimental research

ΚΟΦΙΝΑΣ ΕΜΠ

Kofinas Company does not rely only on theoretical study but also proceeds further by investing on the Experimental Survey in alliance with the National Technical University of Athens.Technical University of Athens! It was back in 2009, that a building response system against seismic action was checked, by utilizing the seismic simulator of the NTUA. The undeniable experiment results confirmed both construction sturdiness and quality.

In 2011, Kofinas moved on further. A new experiment of a three storey construction took place with equally outstanding results.

Despite the objective certification received by the above mentioned researches, our company continues with further surveys.

Anti – Seismicity

Anti-seismic resistance

It is of real proof that, Kofinas houses are fully antiseismic constructions. By reassuring the masonry quality of robustness, Kofinas company has never remained on a theoretical basis. However, it has been tested and certified via scientific researches.

The robotically placed screw on all building parts, the metal brackets which the construction is tied with, the oversizing of the bearing structure through mechanical study and the enforcement  at the stress points, by means of a special static programme, all make up the technological advantages. As a result, top scientists were encouraged to speak  in public about the successful anti-seismic behaviour of Kofinas Constructions.

Implementation of Passive Structure – Energy Efficiency

 As a Member of the Hellenic Passive House Institute, Kofinas company can implement passive design constructions. By the use of certain solutions, such as ventilation and heat recovery over the existing lead construction system, we are in the advantageous position of practically building houses of zero expenses for heating and cooling energy.

Η εταιρεία Κοφινάς μέλος του Ελληνικού Ινστιτούτου Παθητικού Κτιρίου

It is pretty obvious that all Kofinas Constructions can easily cover the requirements greek building energy efficiency regulation (ΚΕΝΑΚ).


Ελληνικός κανονισμός ενεργειακής απόδοσης κτιρίων (ΚΕΝΑΚ)

Besides the maximum thermo-insulation provided by the masonry at a level of 0,09W/m2K, Kofinas constructions offer a variety of choices in order to improve the energy efficiency of your new residence, by resulting in both ecological benefits and expense reduction in all households..

Thermal Behaviour of Kofinas Buildings

Our Company owns both technology and know-how in order to test and ensure both optimal energy and thermal behaviour of buildings.

Health and ecology

Health and ecology

All materials used by Kofinas company are chosen with the aim of having the least possible impact both on people’s health and the natural environment. That is why our timber is dried, without being chemically saturated like green coloured timber. Click on and read our eco friendly timber Certificate. Moreover, Knauf plaster boards are made of natural plaster and have undergone biological tests by international certifiers. As for the glue, it is of certified suitability for house construction utility.

We consider that the natural solution is simultaneously the best one.  For this reason, we totally put it into action in every single house we manufacture.

Additionally, the Swedish Plant we associate with, out of ecological conscience, replaces each cut tree with a new one.
