Building & ConstructionBuilding & Construction
  • Insulate a Swiss home built in the 1600s to achieve passive energy status - not requiring heating or cooling.
  • Conserve living space.
  • Use a flexible insulation to maintain the original shape and reveals of the house.
  • An aerogel solution consisting of multiple layers of 9 mm
    Spaceloft® 9251 was used externally and internally on the walls and also internally on the floors.
  • Externally - traditional rendering systems were applied with a standard metal mesh incorporated to protect the system.
  • Internally - standard plaster was used to allow a breathable solution that let entrapped vapor "breathe" through the wall.
  • The U value of the walls improved from 1 W/m2K to 0.2 W/m2K.
  • The contractor experienced faster installation rates for the walls and floors.
  • The building retained its character features.
