Thin Reed Mat

Reed mats are manufactured for two different purposes - plaster mat (thin mat) and interior decoration and garden use (thick mat). Reed mat is environmentally friendly. It can be installed on wood (logs, boards) or stone walls.

Thin reed mat can be installed as a plaster base on both the ceiling and the wall. Thin reed mat is ideal for plastering (preferably clay or lime plaster) and is easy to install with clamps (pneumatic, electric or hand stapler).

Thin reed mat is braided with a thin wire of stainless steel

Reed board

Reed board - a pressed board that is braided with zinc wire. The dimensions of the board are 200x60 cm. Produced in a thickness of 5 cm, and 2.5 cm. Reed boards are made of the highest quality reed.

Reed, as a material is environmentally friendly and has been used in construction for centuries.

In terms of primary energy content per cubic meter of material, reed board is the most environmentally friendly insulation material (compared to flax, cellulose, stone wool and glass wool) (Kätlin Kallas, 2006).

In construction, the reed board is used and is still being used for insulation of walls and ceilings (especially in wooden houses) and sound insulation (with excellent sound absorption). 

For fire safety, reed boards are plastered with lime or clay plasters. The panels can also be impregnated with Multi Protect products and SG2 Magna Firestop, a colorless fire retardant. 

Reed board is an excellent base for plaster. For example, the reed board has been used to cover log houses and to insulate limestone manor houses and as a plaster base to prevent the plaster from crumbling due to the dampness of the wall. Reed board and traditional plasters "breathe" (let in water vapor). Building and repairing a house with the right materials benefits personal and house health and is environmentally friendly. Reed boards are easy to install and process.

There is a wide range of uses for reed boards, for example, it is possible to make window shutters, fence, or a garden shed. Nowadays reed board is widely used in horticulture.

The reed has been used worldwide for its properties and demonstrates people's awareness of the need for environmental preservation and a healthy living environment.

The 5 cm thick reed plate has a thermal conductivity of 0.056 W / mK (Construction Resources, UK).

Thick Reed Mat

Thick reed mat is mainly used as a fence, and can also be used to cover buildings of simple construction. It is also used as a decorative element in interior decoration. Reed mat is environmentally friendly. It can be installed on wood (logs, boards) or stone walls.

Saviukumaja recommends woven jute fabric for reinforcing plasters.

Woven jute fabric is specially designed for reinforcement in clay, lime, and other plasters.
Products made of jute are highly valued for their durability.
They are environmentally friendly and healthy (it does not cause allergies). Jute is also considered the best defense against the harmful effects of geopathic zones.

Jute is a plant that could conditionally be compared to our reed. It is a tropical moisture-bearing plant that grows to a height of 3-4 m. Jute fibers bind water (moisture) to themselves, practically remaining dry themselves. Jute is one of the most durable natural fiber materials.

Dimensions: 1 x 50 m

Base- and finishing primer

Saviukumaja's primer, or methyl cellulose, is a packed, powdery product that will be diluted with pure water. Methylcellulose
is obtained from unbranched carbohydrate in plant and wood cellulose. Cellulose primer does not obstruct the surface diffusibility.

Saviukumaja's cellulose primer is used for priming the clay- and lime plasters in order to give the surface more strength and
resistance to friction. It is also used for priming the surfaces before applying clay- or lime paint if the base surface is highly porous.
