The Building Insulation materials act as a barrier to deterioration. It is a closed cell structure that offers several special characteristics and advantages at installation like protection from heat, temperature and moisture. The insulation acts as an envelope to your construction protecting it from any possible harm. Below are a few examples of some widely used building insulation products categorized based on their function and composition.
Aerolam XLPE Thermal Insulation is available in different Thicknesses ranging from 3 mm to 100 mm (or More) with CLASS-1 & O classification.
XLPE is an ideal environment friendly insulation material (Green Products), with a perfect solution for all your insulation needs for roofs, ceiling, ducts, pipes, vessels etc. Aerolam XLPE is best suited for all Metal Roof providing superior results and ensuring pleasant indoor climate and saving energy.
Radiant Barrier- Bubble insulation
Bubble insulation is an economic alternative compared to other Insulation product. It is 96% reflective which means it does the exact same job at preventing radiant heat gains in your building. This will help in making more comfortable and cooling conditions inside the building.
AEROLAM manufactures highly versatile Bubble Insulation solutions using the latest technology, made to order for virtually any industry. Aerolam manufactures insulation of various thicknesses, starting from 4 mm upto 20 mm.
Extruded Polystyrene Foams (XPS)
It will be easy to maintain the building temperature and more importantly no running cost as well as reduce the heating/Cooling load. The XPS is a special, high performance insulation material, developed 50 years ago. The product can be installed in Roof, Wall and floor insulation purpose (RCC / Metal / Stone surface).
The benefit of a more efficient insulation system is Greater Efficiency with Cost Savings. The high performance XPS Insulation System not only works better for heat exclusion in summer and heat retention in winter, it also means significant savings on energy costs. (Also reduce the outside noise including noise from rain / hailstorm)
Rockwool are currently the world leaders in the mineral wool insulation, manufacturing stone wool from a blend of naturally occurring volcanic diabase rock. This rock is heated to an incredibly high temperature and spun (much like candy floss) into a fine wool that then can be used as an insulation material for many different purposes.
Rockwool stone wool fibre can withstand more than 1000°C without melting – this means it can slow the spread of fire in a property where it to catch fire. Rockwool has fantastic thermal insulating properties. Rockwool stone wool has great acoustic insulating properties also, so it can really help with sound reduction.
Tips to opt to Amplify the Insulation Effect in Hot Climate
If you have implemented a good insulation material in your building, then you can boost their effect by following these tips.
Use blinds, drapes or reflective material on the windows to minimize the impact of solar gain because of the Sun.
Air conditioners make a pleasant cool living space but then it is an expensive approach to fight back hot weather. It consumes a significant amount of electricity and adds the cost of maintenance.
Try to turn off the unnecessary electronic items that produce a lot of heat. Apart from this, put water in a tray and put under the fan. Yes, it does work and comes with no cost.
Allow proper air circulation in the buildings. Open all windows at night-time to have an effective air circulation.
So, is insulation important? Yes! Of course, it is important. Because it will not only insulate the building from the external hot climate, but it reduces a huge amount of energy. You will run your AC for a lesser time and will save a considerable amount of expenses. A poorly insulated roof or wall is cooler in winter and hotter in summer. Thus, a good thermal insulation is a must to protect your building and enhance your living comforts. It will also create a healthy and workable environment for working conditions inside a building or a Warehouse.
