Insulation of external walls improves thermal insulation capacity - improves energy efficiency of the external wall and in consequence reduces the cost of heating the building and improves comfort. Insulation of external walls applies to new building and is an important part of the design, but also applies to already existing buildings.
VestaEco boards are used when erecting new buildings but also during thermal insulation process of already existing buildings. Proper selection of the product allows to use it in brick and mortar buildings, as well as timber frame buildings.
VestaEco WALL is often used in ETICS system used to insulate masonry walls because of the high vapour-permeability of the lignocellulosic fibres, ease of processing and because it provides a stable base for mineral plasters. Diffusion-open structure enables removal of large amounts of technological water which may evaporate from the building for years after it has been occupied.
Using VestaEco boards in wooden constructions and timber frame houses as sheathing of external walls increases the building’s thermal inertia. As a result buildings do not cool out as fast as when other insulation materials are used. It is possible thanks to the high thermal capacity of lignocellulosic fibres. High stiffness of VestaEco PROTECT boards allows for connecting them between wooden studs without the use of supporting OSB boards. Elastic structure of the fibres facilitates mounting the boards serving as external insulation from the inside.
VestaEco boards are perfect for insulation of ventilated façades from cement-fibre boards, siding and metal panels, but also as insulation of cavity walls. They can also be used to insulate from the inside buildings like log cabins or listed buildings, when altering the façade is impossible.
Wide range of VestaEco façade products makes it possible to use them in almost every building and technology. VestaEco WALL – for masonry walls, VestaEco PROTECT for frame constructions, VestaEco INTERNAL – insulation from the inside. The offer is complemented by special finishes of the products, i.e. reinforcing mesh which additionally increases the resistance to impact of exposed parts or a wind barrier, which increases the building’s insulation. Boards with external layer of increased density are recommended in particular for façades of masonry walls as they combine high thermal insulation parameters with improved mechanical and acoustic parameters.
