  • Insulate a new floor being installed in a residential house. The existing floor had been laid down directly on the ground without any insulation.
  • The new floor needed to improve the thermal comfort in the house and reduce heating costs.
  • There was not much space to insulate.
  • An aerogel solution of 9 mm Spaceloft® 9251 was chosen for its outstanding insulation value in a thin profile.
  • The use of conventional insulation materials would have required altering or changing all doors and frames.
  • Spaceloft 9251 was installed on the entire floor in 30 minutes. Polystyrene foam requires a full day. The time savings reduced labor costs and allowed the project to remain on schedule.
  • The owner did not have to change any doors and frames, saving substantial time and money.
  • Spaceloft is easy to unwind on the floor, flexible but robust, and easily cut like a carpet.
  • The thin Spaceloft saved over 3 cm of height in the room.
