The reliable thermal insulation design
Insulation helps save energy, avoid damage to buildings and delivers a healthy indoor living environment. To ensure this works reliably and efficiently over the long run, one design aspect is especially critical in terms of building physics: The thermal insulation must be protected on both sides.
The ideal structure is 3-ply
- An airproofing layer such as a vapour retarder is located on the side of the insulation facing the room
- The thermal insulation material is in the middle.
- On the exterior side, a wind barrier such as an underlay or wall lining membrane covers the insulation
This design ensures that weather, condensation, mould and air flow do not negatively affect the performance of the building component or even cause structural damage.
