Without us noticing, poorly insulated buildings lose a lot of energy, and cost more in the long run as we spoke about in our previous blog post. To solve this, it is necessary to insulate walls and facades, as this significantly reduces the energy consumption in areas that are designed for heating or air-conditioning. Therefore, thermal insulation has come to the fore and it has passed from being an important matter to a vital issue when building and restoring. As such, the need to consider insulation and the material of the finishes we use can be daunting. Some people may also be aware of the health issues related to using Glasswool insulation, and how this can affect people on a long term scale.
Architects and designers together need to consider the materials we are using for our ceilings in schools, the walls in our childcare centres and hospitals, as well as all the spaces where health and wellbeing are of a high priority. We believe our product can be the answer to a variety of domestic and commercial applications when building or renovating.
