Investment in a promising future Escalating energy costs and acute environmental damage: these are today’s challenges. Reducing the energy consumption of buildings by thermal insulation becomes a vital issue which is important for new buildings. For buildings where it is impossible to apply external insulation on the enclosing walls, the use of FOAMGLAS® interior insulation can be the only appropriate choice. These are for example buildings where façades have to be preserved and cannot be retrofitted on the outside. FOAMGLAS® cellular glass insulation is an unrivalled solution, because its...

performance characteristics of cellular glass insulation systems ensure optimal protection of the building. Due to the cell geometry with a “build-in” vapourbarrier, moisture cannot enter the material. Damage caused by moisture or mould can be excluded with professional design and workmanship. In addition interior insulation is saving money, because expensive reface and scaffolding works are not needed. Another advantage: in buildings with intermittent heating (rooms which are not permanently used), the heating time is significantly reduced. 1 Ultimate insulation – essential physical...
