Spacetherm has been supplied by the A. Proctor Group for Ski Dubai, one of the most demanding of all environments, where thermal performance is crucial. Ski Dubai is the first indoor ski resort in the United Arab Emirates. Located in the Mall of the Emirates, this unique structure provides 22,500m2 of indoor ski area.
Due to the challenging nature of the centre, it requires innovative products, which are capable of maintaining the temperature range between -1 to -20°C, therefore Arup consultants approved the use of Spacetherm. Designed to prevent thermal bridging through a component or element of a structure, Spacetherm’s unique properties can be beneficial in managing thermal bridging either in warm or cold climates.
Spacetherm offers superior thermal performance, which enabled Herald Contracting to insulate the viewing window reveals at the adjoining Kempinski Hotel with just 10mm thickness, whilst still providing a high performing thermal conductivity of 0.015 W/mK.
Engineered for unsurpassed thermal performance in spacecritical applications, Spacetherm offers high thermal resistance and vapour permeability whilst being highly hydrophobic. Where thermal bridging is an issue, Spacetherm is an ideal choice for timber or steel frame structures and on request can be cut to a variety of widths and sizes to suit different applications. In addition to timber and steel structures, it can also be bonded to a wide range of boards and substrates. Its flexibility and ease of use, combined with exceptional thermal performance qualities, which can be retained for up to 50 years, make it a preferred choice for many architects and specifiers.
