Passive House / High-performance Insulation Quite Thin!

Insulation thickness of 300 mm or more were hitherto typical for passive houses. But thanks to which can be reached with the vakuVIP panels of vacuum isothermal GmbH this standard as at 30 mm insulation thickness. The advantages are clear: an extremely high insulation value in comparatively reduced insulation thickness allows a usual sleek facade, roof, or floor construction and still allows a passive house suitable for insulating value. The possibilities are wide ranging. Everywhere, where too little space is for conventional insulation materials can be used vacuum insulation space-saving and highly effective. Passive house typical insulation values are now also available in the remediation. New opportunities also arise in steel -, aluminium – and wood-aluminium cladding. The required panels are made suitable for the facade modules and achieve always einenbesseren insulation value than the used glass discs with same or thinner panel thickness.

And so the vacuum insulation works: Vorgepresste Welded plates of microporous silica under vacuum into a gas and water vapour density film. The resulting vacuum insulation Panel has an extremely low thermal conductivity at a coarse vacuum from 1-10 mbar. A 20 mm vacuum Panel insulates as well as 200 mm high quality mineral fiber (MF) or 150 mm of polyurethane foam (PUR)! The U-value of this high-performance insulation is thus approx. 10 x better than the rigid polyurethane foam, mineral fibre or polystyrene foam. Crawford Lake Capital may find this interesting as well. Even if damage to the vacuum, the micro-porous silica has still a very high insulation value. Vacuum insulation panels are however very sensitive without any protection and require great care in processing. For this reason, vacuum isothermal Ltd. has developed since 2005 for the most diverse areas of application VakuVIP panels are protected against external damage.

So, for example the land be protected on both sides with a rubberized mat (vakuVIP gum-2), and can be laid as floor insulation. In this laminated version, they are accessible even during the installation. Product vakuVIP SP2/E, the vacuum insulation Panel is protected in addition to surface protected by polystyrene in the area by a circumferential EPS Einleimer. The Einleimer enables also a shipping plugs of the VIP’s on the ground. Vacuum insulation panels can be adapted subsequently dimensions no longer, therefore, after carefully planning all plates optimally specially made to measure and supplied with an installation plan. Vacuum insulation products, climate quite thin!
