Thermal Wall Insulation
Jacketing is applied on the Shell surrounding the building, that is the external surface of the external wall. Since it completely covers the sides of the building, it is the most ideal insulation method.In jacketing practices, Warm Therm XPS Panels are placed ont the wall surface with soil cement base.
Though the most appropriate method in wall insulation in terms of structure physics is external insulation, in case this is not possible, internal insulation is applied. Warm Therm XPS Panels stick to internal wall sruface with cement or plaster based adhesive mortar.
Thermal bridges, columns and beams where structure materials with different thermal conductivity are connected to one another, intersect or mingle are places where heat transfer is more compared to general structure.
Warm Therm XPS Insulation Panel can be applied in two ways as open or closed. In open cavity wall application, XPS Insulation Panels should be fixed to the wall surface inside and the open space should be left between the external wall and panels.
In the closed cavity wall application, XPS Insulation Panels stick to the external wall surface and the internal wall is built on the panels without leaving any open space. The vapor transition resistance of the external wall should be low in this application. XPS Insulation Panels don’t collapse, or aren’t piled up or fragmented at wall base, or they don’t cause thermal bridges by forming open spaces.
