HEALTHY INTERIOR INSULATION AND CLIMATE REGULATION – Epatherm Calcium silicate insulation
Problems with mould and moisture?
We believe that internal insulation practices are often under designed – particularly in the area of single skin masonry walls. While we acknowledge the need to upgrade older buildings we need to have certainty that we are doing is both safe and cost-effective. Epatherm calcium silicate climate boards offer a long term solution to the problems we are experiencing with this type of retrofit.
Single leaf masonry buildings are generally not suited to current accepted methods of insulation. The most widely used method; internal drylining using insulated plasterboard can often create the ideal situations for condensation, mould and eventual health problems. With the epatherm system you can choose a long lasting solution that saves money, prevents mould and creates a comfortable climate for you and your family.
The solution – EPATHERM INDOOR CLIMATE BOARDS – COMFORTABLE CLIMATE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
Moisture and mould can be prevented by the combination of an effective climate regulation; Epatherm indoor climate boards balance temperature and moisture differences perfectly. Moisture in the air is absorbed by the pores of the capillary active Epatherm boards rather than condensation. As soon as the room climate has normalised the moisture is released back to the room. The board surface remains dry and free of mould.
