Many houses built between 1900 and 1970 have cavity walls. The outer shell, usually a brick facade or plastered masonry, provides protection against the weather. Behind this there is a 40-100 mm cavity. The internal shell is usually the load bearing wall. A lot of valuable heat energy is lost via an un-insulated external wall. isofloc pearl cavity wall insulation puts a stop to that and is simply blown into the cavity between the two masonry shells.
Advantages for the building owner
Huge energy savings are possible with this insulation measure. The heat loss and CO2 emissions through the exterior wall are reduced by up to 80 percent*. Because the aeration of the air layer is prevented by cavity wall insulation, the surface temperature of the inner wall surfaces increases tangibly and unpleasant draught effects of cold walls or mould problems are consigned to the past. That contributes towards a high level of comfort for the inhabitants. The actual living space is not stressed or affected by the retrofitted insulation. Because the construction does not have to be completely broken open or partly destroyed, the retrofit insulation of a cavity wall with isofloc pearl is very economical and comfortable. Therefore, the costs of this energy-improvement measure are very small compared to other insulation solutions. The total energy balance of the building can be additionally optimised by combining isofloc pearl insulation with further isofloc insulation measures.
How does it work?
In cavity-wall retrofit solutions, the EPS granulate is injected into the formerly free space though blow-in holes in the facing brick shell and the openings are then sealed again with colour-matched plaster or grout. Information for the processing of injectable insulation materials can be found here. The installation is carried out exclusively by trained isofloc specialists.
