Church Roof Installation

Aerogel Blanket Insulates Pitched Roof of Historic Stone Church.

Warm roof buildup between ceiling deck and battens of a pitched slate roof.

Details Location: Historic Stone Church

Challenges

  • 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.

Solutions

  • 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.

Benefits

  • 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.
