The partial knowledge of the area of thermo-technical properties of wooden lightweight external walls is presented in this article. The distribution of temperatures inside the structure during a typical winter week is described as observed on samples of walls built in a chamber pavilion type. What is compared is the thermal performance variant of sandwich construction walls obtained on the basis of calculations, measurements and simulations.
