THERMAL INSULATION

Why should we install thermal insulation?

  • You can save up to 25% (and more) of heating costs.
  • No heat in the summer.
  • No cold floors in the winter.
  • And you contribute to active climate protection. 1 m² of insulation saves 16 kg CO² per year.

Determine your annual consumption of natural gas or heating oil (as m3 or litres) and divide the result through the heated surface area of your building (as  ).

Then you can read the result on the scale. If possible, the established value should be below 15.

Check if your heat consumption is not excessive:

0 – 10: Thermal insulation of your building is sufficient

11 – 20: Your building has a potential for savings

21 – 30: Thermal insulation of your building is defective

Energy-saving means will be profitable to you.

Insulation can be either installed on a wall (cavity wall), a pitched roof or flooring joists. With our injection system, critical places in your house can be insulated quickly and at a low cost.

 

We use blown and bulk spray-on insulation materials (PARON and EKOFIBER) of non-flammable mineral wool for additional thermal, cold, acoustic, and fire prevention insulation systems. Further information can be found on the manufacturer’s Internet website – ECOFIBRE.

 

There you will also find a video with a presentation for additional installing of mineral wool flakes on a flat roof surface.

 

Insulation materials are blown in through a flexible hose into walls and roof structures. Quick and easy processing of insulation materials makes this method a very cost-effective one.

 

For an average detached house the works are completed within one day. The results include low heating costs on one hand, and a marked improvement in the climate of the concerned room, both in the winter and in the summer, on the other hand.


WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING INSULATION SYSTEMS:

Roof and wall insulation

  1. Roof coated with the spray-on method
  2. Roofs and walls insulated with the blow-in method

Cellar flooring insulation

  1. Thermal insulation and fire protection for a cellar flooring of mineral wool-based plaster, with the spray-on method.
  2. Thermal insulation of a cellar flooring with mineral wool flakes and mineral panels.


Roof coating with a spray-on method

 

Leaks can occur in roofs sheathed with bricks, cement tiles or flat tiles, due to broken, damaged or missing roof sheathing components.

 

Application of reinforced mortar on a roof with the spray-on method results in a durable, wind- and water-proof roof sheathing both for longitudinal and transverse roof seams. This type of roof sheathing represents an alternative to a decorative roof sheathing. As we use the machine processing, we can prepare an advantageous offerfor you.

 

Material:

 

Mineral-reinforced roof mortar, non-flammable, fibreglass-reinforced, environmentally friendly

 

Processing:

 

The mortar is injected with a pump or as a completely new coating on ceramic tiles and pantiles, including ridge, edge and eaves tiles, or is used for renovation of existing sheathing.

 

Thermal insulation with an injection method

 

Insulation granulate and flakes represent an alternative to traditional insulation systems for thermal insulation of all difficult to reach structures.

Processing with cutting-edge machines provides an accurate and economical solution.

 

Application areas:

 

  1. Empty spaces – in pitched roofs, attic side walls, collar beams, flat roof structures, masonry, gypsum boards and supplying ducts

  2. Difficult to reach structures – Empty spaces in a knee wall at a floor level, suspended ceilings, trussed roof girders, open joists and flooring sheathing.

Processing:

 

Mineral wool flakes are transported by special equipment to a specific location and blown in or sprayed into them in a seamless and joint-free way.

 

A water glass-based adhesive binds mineral wool flakes and all dust particles to the insulating layer.

 

Benefits:

  • cost-effective/low cost execution due to a high daily capacity;
  • no thermal bridges due to a seamless and joint-free insulation layer;
  • the system is not cumbersome for inhabitants due to a closed-system transport.

Thermal insulation for a cellar flooring with fibreglass-reinforced plaster using a spray-on method

 

Thermal insulation for a cellar flooring with cement-bound fibreglass-reinforced plaster, A1 class material

 

The material consists of slag wool with cement and other fire-prevention additives as binding agents. This material is proven to be asbestos-free.

 

Application areas:

 

CAFCO Heat-Shield® or Dossolan-Thermique® are used as thermal insulation, fire prevention protection, acoustic insulation for floorings of cellars, multi-storey car parks, other concrete surfaces, steel supports, or steel girders.

 

Materials are processed with a spray-on method, and in accordance with manufacturer’s guidelines. Depending on a substrate, verified latex-based bonding layers or metal mesh are installed. Spraying can be performed with a machine technique recommended by a manufacturer.

 

Drying/curing/binding time is 8 to 10 days, depending on the air temperature. The final stability/durability is achieved in about 28 days.

 

Surface finish:

 

After processing, the surface is rough. On a Client’s request, the surface can be finished by rolling or pressing. To increase the surface durability, a hardening agent is injected into fibres, or the insulated surface is coated with paint.

Thermal insulation of a cellar flooring with mineral fibre lamella panels and mineral panels.

 

Additional thermal insulation of a cellar flooring with mineral fibre lamella panels is installed by gluing them on. To protect the surface, the insulation can be coated with latex fibre hardener, mineral paint or reinforced mortar.

  • class A construction materials
  • fixing system: glue or with dowels
