Gablok : the story of an insulated block

Added value: structure for self-building

Founded in 2019, Gablok offers a revolutionary insulated timber-frame construction method. Aiming to simplify construction and offer a simple, high-performance, and flat-pack timber house system, Gabriel Lakatos filed his patent in 2018.

A fan of interlocking building block toys from an early age, and involved in traditional construction for 25 years, he came up with the design for stacked insulated wooden blocks.

After many months of research and testing, the self-build house system has been validated by stability, acoustic, and energy performance consultants.

Build your own house

Product protected by an international patent

The Gablok concept is essentially made up of insulated blocks, an adapted floor system and insulated beams and lintels that will allow you to constitute the exterior and interior elevation walls of your wooden house (self-build structure). These elements are necessary for the assembly of the main structure of your future building. These are delivered to you directly on site with your installation plan.

This process allows, among other things, to avoid excessive waste related to on-site fabrication.

Once the assembly of the insulating blocks is completed, all that remains is the completion of the roof (frame + roofing) and the finishing of the exterior of your home with the finish of your choice (crest, brick, cladding,…).

The assembly of the system is extremely fast and does not require no drying time.

The dimensions of your door and window openings are known as soon as you receive your building permit. This allows you to order your exterior woodwork in advance. The early manufacture of these is a significant time saver during the construction of your wooden house kit, thus saving the stop of the construction site.

At the end of the day, you will be able

At the end of the day, the Gablok concept allows for a seamless flow of the various trades involved in the construction of your new home.

Building your own home? That's what the Gablok concept allows you to do, all over the world !
