Prefabricated Construction with Wood
Of great significance in this respect are the cladding and coverings of the constructional elements. Since the 1950s, plywood, chipboard and composite wood boards have been used for this purpose, as well as plasterboard and gypsum fibreboard, which, used in conjunction with mineral wool and wood-fibre mats, are ideal for fire protection, sound and thermal insulation. The greater the complexity of compound units, the more important it is to manufacture them under workshop conditions and with the appropriate machinery. Transport to the site should not cause any problem if the usual constraints of freight and assembly are observed.
