A CZECH MANUFACTURER, SWISS KNOW-HOW
NOVATOP is a comprehensive and in many aspects, unique building system. Standard panels SOLID made of cross-laminated timber complements sophisticated ceiling and roof elements ELEMENT and OPEN, whose main advantage is low weight but high static load carrying capacity. At the same time, they can be fitted with thermal and sound insulation or distribution routes for installations in the production process. The product range also includes STATIC five-layer boards and SWP three-layer organic boards. ACOUSTIC panels designed to solve room acoustics are at the top of the system pyramid.
All NOVATOP products are manufactured from dried spruce slats put together in layers; the layers form an angle of 90˚. The number of layers can differ and determines the final thickness of the panel. The wood is dried to a moisture content of about 8%, it ensures high stability of components and prevents them from cracking. The slats are glued to each other in all directions; in the production process polyurethane adhesives are mostly, these are approved in accordance with European standards for manufacture of wooden load-bearing building components both for the interior and the exterior. Due to the technology of drying and sticking, they exhibit dimensional stability even with changes in humidity.

Visual wood offers completely new possibilities in shaping the architecture of modern design. It brings unique beauty and aroma of natural wood into the interiors.
The panels prove successful with disclosed ceilings or with ceilings in the attic where they form the functional bearing layer and enable lights to be embedded and the installation to be located directly in the structure. Preparation of routes for distribution and installation is solved according to project documentation inside the panels in the production process. The surfaces can be treated in the same way as natural wood or, possibly tinted.
We recommend consulting the surface quality. The panel in the visual quality is ground and has neither joints nor glue residues. To the contrary, the no-visual quality is primarily intended as structural.
The flexibility of the system enables creation of tailored projects and allows you to meet the individual requirements. NOVATOP is able to react to partial demand for walls or roofs as well as to a comprehensive solution for the whole building. The individual products can be combined with other structures based on wood as well as a brick building, steel or glass.
The system is suitable for the construction of houses and apartment buildings, office buildings, schools, sports facilities and large industrial buildings. It can be also used in extensions and superstructures. NOVATOP meets the strict criteria for construction of passive and energy-efficient buildings.
All the products are tailor made – in exact formats with selected processing of joints, with openings for windows and doors and other individual adjustments as preparation for distribution routes or addition of insulation.
The fully processed panels are shipped directly to the site where they are put together to make a complete building using a crane – accurately, simply and quickly. Fillings of openings, insulation and the facade, according to the requirements of the project, are then applied to the structure. In the interior, the panels can be left uncovered with the visual quality of spruce wood.
NOVATOP relies on simplicity of execution of the structural details, the minimum number of assembly joints and the compositions of the walls. All of this is reflected primarily in the quality of the building.

“Our philosophy consists primarily in producing and developing a high-quality construction system that connects people enthusiastic about new things. We want to do our work so that it was enjoyable not only for us, but mainly for our partners and their customers, and the result included buildings for life and, above all, for joy. Today I am sure that they are setting a new lifestyle trend focused on nature and, especially, on human individuality.”
“We are very proud to be working with the greatest professionals in the industry at home and abroad; each project is a challenge for us and a very rewarding experience. We listen to them; they are a great inspiration as well as motivation for us. Without them, we would be just panel manufacturers.”
