PREVENTING THE FORMATION OF THERMAL BRIDGES
Thermal bridges are a problem which should be paid special attention to when we want to effectively insulate a building. It is because of these that the rooms of buildings cool down quickly through tie beams, plinths, concrete elements of the wall, corners, and other wall connections, and the heat loss can reach up to 10% of the energy costs.
It is essential to design and perform effective thermal insulation in order to ensure the appropriate comfort of use of a building’s rooms. Achieving high efficiency depends on the quality of the thermal-insulation performance and material.
To eliminate the risk of thermal bridges’ formation, it is recommended to use XPS PRIME G panels, which are characterised by a very-low heat-transfer coefficient and high mechanical strength. Processing and installing XPS PRIME G, S and D panels facilitate the simple and quick implementation of thermal-insulation works.
Benefits of using XPS PRIME G in thermal insulation of places where there is a risk of thermal bridges:
- reduction of heat losses,
- comfortable use of rooms,
- prevention of the formation of mould and fungi,
- prevention of structural problems:
– condensation on wall surfaces,
– concerns related to appearance,
– the formation of cracks.
