INDUSTRY LEADER AND INNOVATOR

Honka is renowned as an industry leader and innovator with over 50 years of experience in solid wood homes. Always on the cutting edge of solid wood production technology, Honka stands for the highest quality standards.


ENGINEERED MULTI-LAMINATED TIMBERS

Honka uses massive wood that is multi-laminated and kiln-dried, resulting in straight and true timbers. Our timbers are selected from solid, core wood which yields exceptional load bearing capacity and little to no cracking. The perfect choice for solid wood structures.

Multi-laminated timbers will beat out their wood frame and concrete counterparts when it comes to durability and protection against moisture, fire and natural events.

FIRE RESISTANCE Of SOLID WOOD WALLS

In a direct comparison with steel, wood behaves much better in fire. The charcoal generated in the combustion process has a much lower thermal conductibility than the wood itself and forms a natural insulating layer during a fire. This protects the wood from becoming even hotter, while the load-bearing capacity is retained practically to the fullest extent. In contrast, steel loses most of its load-bearing capacity at temperatures as low as around 500°C and has to be encased in other construction materials to achieve fire safety values similar to those of wood.

HEALTHY, SUSTAINABLE & DURABLE

The quality of materials along with our technology and innovation is what makes Honka buildings the true leader in healthy, sustainable, and durable wood homes.
