FACADES AND WALL INSULATION
VENTILATED FACADES INSULATION
Ventilated facades are widely used for new buildings and renovations of existing buildings. They protect buildings against rain and wind and keep the buildings dry in humid and wet environments giving the benefits of added wall durability, energy savings and preventing unwanted sound. Ventilated facades give you the possibility to change the appearance of a typical building and create a one-of-a-kind project with a unique aesthetic look and feel.
FRAME WALLS & MASONRY
Frame walls, solid brick walls and masonry cavity walls are the perfect application for VW Products. Our stone wool insulation products have excellent thermal properties and a high level of thermal performance. By insulating your walls as shown in the images, it will help to maintain stable temperatures and reduce energy usage by keeping buildings warmer in winter and cooler in summer. The use and installation of the correct VW product will ensure high levels of fire safety, excellent acoustic performance, temperature regulation and will allow for vapor permeability which minimizes the risk of condensation within the structure.
Roofs, Ceilings, Attics
Up to 35% of heating and cooling losses are caused by incorrect roof insulation usage in buildings. By insulating your roof correctly, you will be able to immediately save up to 35% of your energy spend without needing to insulate your walls or floors. Moreover, it can provide structural safety to your house as the temperature difference that occurs in winter months can result in a dded moisture in your roof causing mold and rotting of structures. Roof insulation is also a basic requirement of SANS 10400-XA and all homes are required to maintain a minimum R value figure based on their region. By utilizing Volcanic wool products, you will be able to achieve the necessary R value with a 110mm insulation thickness as opposed to the standard 135mm which results in more space and less building material.
Insulation of floors with Volcanic wool insulation products will allow you to save money on heating and cooling bills as up to 15% of energy losses occur through your floor. When you have your floors insulated, you will see that your HVAC systems (Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning) do not have to be used as often as before due to the heat retention and thermal efficiency of Volcanic wool insulation products. Moreover, insulated floors will bring you more general and acoustic comfort in your house providing you with a better living environment.
