Spacetherm

The ongoing issue of hard - to - treat walls in the UK can be overcome utilising Spacetherm® - an ultra - thin insulation for thermal upgrades, saving valuable space without altering the exterior fabric of the building. Spacetherm can be supplied on its own and cut to size or laminated to a number of facings to suit your individual requirements. Its remarkable performance is achieved through the use of flexible aerogel blankets. The insulation used in Spacetherm is material derived from silica gel.

Spacetherm® - Aerogels In Building Refurbishment

The presentation discusses the basics of thermal insulation in buildings, with a particular emphasis on historical and traditional construction methods. Looking at thermal performance properties of various insulation materials and how they affect the balance of heat, air and moisture movement. It then moves onto the uses of high performance aerogel insulation in a variety of applications.

This is followed by an overview of hygrothermal assessment methodologies and the use of WUFI software for modelling moisture flow in buildings with practical examples of the benefits this can bring to building design.

Topics covered in this CPD:

  • Basics of Thermal Insulation
  • K, R and U Values
  • Insulation Types
  • What Is Aerogel?
  • Hygrothermal Assessments & WUFI

Wraptherm

spacetherm

Wraptherm is a composite comprising 10mm Spacetherm Insulation blanket bonded to the face of Wraptite vapour permeable, airtight self-adhesive membrane. Use of Wraptherm provides improved airtightness levels combined with a reduction in thermal bridging. Wraptherm was developed for use in the refurbishment of existing buildings where there was a requirement to enhance both the thermal and airtightness performance of the building. Wraptherm can be applied to the internal face of the existing façade, providing a vapour neutral yet airtight layer, fully self-adhered to the substrate layer with the added benefit of a 10mm thick layer of high thermal performance Spacetherm insulation. Over this airtight/thermal composite framing can be installed with the cold bridging being reduced thanks to the Spacetherm layer. Additional thermal insulation can be included within the frame to meet the u values required for the refurbishment.

  • Single product airtightness and thermal bridging solution
  • Ideal for Refurbishment and Façade Retention projects
  • Leading Airtightness performance
  • Reduces thermal bridging
  • Continuous airtightness seal
  • Tested low vapour resistance
  • Water resistant yet vapour permeable membrane

Spacetherm Multi

Spacetherm Multi is a high-performance laminate specifically designed to be laid directly onto existing floors & walls. Spacetherm Multi consists of Spacetherm Aerogel insulation blanket bonded to a 6mm Magnesium Oxide Board. Spacetherm Aerogel blanket is available in various thickness from 5mm to 40mm (in multiples of 5). For other thicknesses, or for U-value calculations for your project, please contact Proctor Technical services.

The solution is ideal for use in applications where low U-values are required and room space is at a premium (such as loft conversions). Spacetherm Multi can achieve similar performance to other insulation systems, but at a fraction of the thickness. This allows specifiers greater flexibility and higher performance for refurbishment projects.

Spacetherm Directfix

Spacetherm Directfix is a high performance laminate which is specifically designed to be fixed directly to the wall. It consists of Spacetherm Aerogel insulation blanket bonded to plasterboard, with an additonal pre-bonded plywood reinforcement to the plasterboard. This reinforced laminate will reduce the risk of shot-fired nails failing to create a robust fix and will also reduce the risk of drill bit snagging, should you be using a traditional mechanical fixing method.

Ideal for use in applications where low U-values are required but space is at a premium. Spacetherm Directfix is supplied with foil faced plasterboard as standard to reduce condensation. Plain plasterboard is available on request. Spacetherm Directfix lining boards can achieve similar performance to traditional plasterboard laminates, but at a fraction of the thickness, allowing specifiers greater flexibility and higher performance for refurbishment projects. Due to Spacetherm’s unique hydrophobic qualities it is also possible to directly fix Spacetherm Laminates to certain existing wall substrates (see installation guide for details).

It is ideal for use in applications where low U-values are required but space is limited.

  • Ultra thin insulation system for window reveals
  • The best thermal performance available
  • Minimum loss of space around openings
  • Glued or direct fixed to solid walls
  • Constant long term thermal performance 50 years +
  • Includes an integrated vapour control layer
  • Non-hazardous material

Spacetherm

Installation

Spacetherm® WRB should be glued to the existing wall structure. Drilling is not recommended although it may be required for wiring and services. If drilling is required then care should be taken to compress the panel as much as possible to reduce the risk of insulation fibres wrapping around the drill bit.

 Installation Guide

Internal & External Reveal Angles

Spacetherm® WRB panels should be cut in such a way as to allow for the jointing of the plasterboard or fermacell and an unbroken run of insulation to the existing wall in both internal and external angles. Refer to Installation Guide for details.

Spacetherm Cold Bridge Strip

Spacetherm® CBS (Cold Bridge Strip) uses Spacetherm aerogel insulation encapsulated in polyethelene for use in the prevention of cold bridging through a component or element of a structure. Spacetherm CBS is an ideal specification when trying to reduce cold bridging in timber or steel frame structures. Upon request the Spacetherm CBS can be cut to a variety of widths to suit different applications.

Spacetherm

  • Thin thermal bridge insulation ideal for timber or steel frame structures.
  • Fully encapsulated
  • The best thermal performance available
  • Fast and easy to fix with adhesive backing
  • Constant long term thermal performance 50 years +
  • Available to any width, thickness or length
  • Non-hazardous material

Spacetherm

Cutting

Spacetherm® CBS can be cut using scissors or knife. Care should be taken that cutting blades are kept sharp, if using a knife, the angle between the blade and the Spacetherm® CBS should be kept as low as possible. It is advisable to reseal the ends with tape after cutting is complete.

Fixings

Spacetherm® CBS is supplied with double sided adhesive tape for ease of installation. Spacetherm® CBS can be applied to either timber or metal framing systems.
