DOMINO homes are made from recycled shipping containers.
Why? Because shipping containers are designed to carry heavy loads, stacked in columns, resist harsh environments – weather and resistant to salt corrosion etc. They can withstand practically any extreme weather, such as hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes. Securely anchored, containers can take winds up to 280 kilometers per hour. You can also rest assured that it will never collapse during an earthquake. By far, they make for the safest storm shelters.
A house made from shipping container is resilient to animals or pests because of its thick floor and strong metal walls and roof.
House made from shipping container will last much longer than 100 years!
Uw = 0,155 W/(m2K) / Rw = 6.45
Uw = 0,112 W/(m2K) / Rw = 8.9
Uw = 0,108 W/(m2K) / Rw = 9.26
Airtightness is important for avoiding heat loss as it means less uncontrolled air movement in and out of the building. Less heat loss also means your heating system will work more efficiently, thereby reducing heating bills and energy wastage. It also contributes to maintaining thermal comfort (ie. insulating better in winter and reducing overheating in the summer).
It can improve health by preventing substances that can provoke allergies being carried into the building via air leakage, and can also result in better sound insulation within the home.
Building durability is also enhanced through airtightness by preventing damage caused by moisture-laden cold air leaking into the building envelope and condensing.
In conjunction with a properly designed ventilation system, airtightness will eliminate damp and mould growth in the building fabric and vastly improve indoor air quality.
DOMINO homes are built according to passive house principles by standard. Windows are taped from inside and outside and wooden chipboard on walls, floor and ceiling makes great airtightness layer of the building.

Good ventilation protects you, your family and your guests from unpleasant odors, irritating pollutants and potentially dangerous gases like CO2 and radon. It also prevents the growth of fungus and molds in your home and keeps it protected from allergies and breathing issues.
Ventilation system with heat recovery provides fresh filtered air into a building whilst retaining most of the energy that has already been used in heating the building.
