Accessories | Insulation

Used in the construction or retrofit of buildings. These materials are used to reduce heart transfer to assist in thermal comfort with reduced energy consumption.

Factors affecting the type and amount of insulation to use in a building include:

  • Climate
  • Ease of installation
  • Durability - resistance to degradation from compression, moisture, decomposition, etc.
  • Ease of replacement
  • Cost effectiveness
  • Flammability
  • Sound attenuation
  • Environmental impact
