Our insulation system is composed of three essential elements. A three-dimensional lattice is the structure in which the infill panels are inserted to create a formwork for the structural material. The lattice is important as it performs as an armature and as an anchor for the cladding.
This structure is then filled by infill material that will transform the panels into a closed structure. The right infill material is chosen depending on specific building requirements, environment conditions and customers needs. The decision is also determined by the materials available locally. The cavity between the infill panels is filled with structural materials, which choice is determined by the same conditions mentioned above. If required by local building codes, reinforcement can be added.
Polystyrene possesses ideal physical and mechanical properties for most insulating needs, that’s why it has grown into one of the most versatile insulating materials in construction today. Due to its flexibility and versatility, it can be cut into sheets, slabs, or any desired design to meet specific building code requirements, as well as customized designs. It also proves to be a very durable material: as a result of its manufacturing process, aging does not affect its long-term thermal resistance (LTTR). Polystyrene is used as insulation in walls, roofs, and foundations, and serves as an integral component of structural insulated panels (SIPs), insulated concrete forms (ICFs), and exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS).
Sheathing is one of the most basic and widely used applications for polystyrene insulation in residential and commercial construction. It helps create an envelope around the structure, covering wall cavities and studs to increase their resistance to heat transfer and moisture penetration. With its versatility, ease of installation, and consistent performance benefits, polystyrene foam- insulating sheathing has become an industry standard. Polystyrene sheathing is used in renovations, as well as new construction, because of its compatibility with wood and steel framing, and masonry. This material is safe for the environment, ozone friendly, no CFCs are used in their production, and they have no food value for marine animals.
It is essential to keep a correct airtight of your building, as well as a good air-quality. That helps avoid the presence of air flows through frames, condensation or mold, and energy loss. Plus, the improvement of the air quality is helpful for people with allergies.
A good insulated building allows savings in heating due to high heat loss, and considerable savings on the design phase too.
VALUE OF YOUR BUILDING
It increase the value of the building for a future gain.
SmartBuild insulation system controls the excessive propagation of sound vibrations between adjacent spaces.
During periods of intense heat or solar radiation, as well as during cold periods, a well-insulated building with good thermal inertia will remain pleasantly cool during the day and will retain a sufficient temperature at night. SmartBuild systems allow you to get the best comfort feeling for your building, both in summer and in winter.
