Basement ceilings

Insulation for basement and garage ceilings
Basement ceilings

When insulating a single- or multi-family home, it is important to consider the heat-loss vulnerability in every area of the building including the basement ceiling, which can account for as much as 10% of the building energy loss, and the garage.

Such insulation will provide fire protection while preventing heat loss through the ground floor and should also help isolate noise by providing superior acoustic insulation properties. 

Heraklith wood wool insulation fits these requirements nicely by providing an all-in-one insulation solution that is attractive, easy to install, and durable, lasting for the lifetime of the building. The durability of the wood wool is specifically useful in areas to prevent damage of the walls while loading vehicles. And because Heraklith wood wool insulation is derived from sustainable natural materials, it comprises an eco-friendly and environmentally responsible approach to home insulation.

Fire resistance

Fire resistance

The intense heat of a building fire can affect not only the material being burned but the structural components of the building itself causing significant damage to its support structure and endangering the health and safety of its occupants. To protect against such damage and danger, it is important to…

Thermal performance

Thermal performance

The most important reasons to insulate a building space include the need to improve its thermal level of comfort and reduce its energy use. Insulation lowers the cost of heating and cooling the space and reduces CO2 emissions and their associated stress on the environment. When used in buildings, thermal…

Congress Center Hamburg (Germany)

When the Congress Centre Hamburg (CCH) was expanded and modernised in 2007, insulation was a high priority for the building planners. They considered it especially important to use flame-resistant and non-combustible insulation that combined heat-insulating and sound-absorbing characteristics on the ceilings and walls of the logistics basement, delivery zone,…
