Aerogel Blanket Insulates Pitched Roof of Historic Stone Church.
6th September 20180
Warm roof buildup between ceiling deck and battens of a pitched slate roof.
Details Location: Historic Stone Church
- Preserve the aesthetic appearance of the historic build’s roof both internal and externally.
- Internal insulation not allowed.
- Provide roof insulation externally where the buildup depth has to be absolutely minimised to ensure roof line to coping stones is not compromised.
- Energy saving, space saving and vapour open insulation to allow the entire roof assembly to breathe.
- 20mm Aerogel insulation blanket installed in-between the ceiling deck, roof battens and tiles. A thermal conductivity of only 0.014W/mk, enabling the highest thermal performance in a thin, flexible blanket.
- The thickness of the insulation blanket offered the necessary advanced thermal resistance without effecting the roof line and the tie in to the coping stones.
- Aerogel insulation is hydrophobic so external installation is of no issue as actively repels liquid.
- Fully breathable vapour open system.
- The installation achieved the required level of insulation.
