"Our measured days saved, based on our previous Clair TAR where fabrication and shaping of Aerogel was carried out off shore shows 13 days saving overall. This time saved was a direct result of supplying a pre-cut/preformed vessel insulation of Aerogel Insulation for bends, tees, dome ends and vessel bodies."
Reflectatherm Plus from the A. Proctor Group Ltd has been chosen as a high performance vapor barrier for the new Passenger Terminal Building at Muscat Airport in Oman. The new passenger terminal building is designed to be state of the art, with a total gross floor area of 344,995m2. Market leading roofing, cladding and façade contractor Lakesmere installed the complete roofing system covering an area of 16,750m2, incorporating Reflectatherm Plus, a reflective, high vapor resistance barrier.
Reflectatherm Plus provides a vapor tight layer, which restricts the passage of both liquid water and water vapor, combined with a heat reflecting low emissivity coating, designed to enhance the energy performance of the building envelope. It has long been recognised that the correct management of moisture vapor within buildings is an important aspect of ensuring the longevity of not only the building fabric, but also the health of the occupants.
The use of Reflectatherm Plus reduces the risks of condensation, maintaining the highest level of moisture resistance throughout the extensive new terminal building complex, providing protection for many years to come.
