From modern high rises to historic brownstones, using sustainable building materials to improve energy efficiency has become a top priority. When it comes to insulation for building and construction projects, there are three main technical challenges to overcome:
- Lack of space to accommodate insulation
- Dynamic building physics
- Historical preservation
Thick conventional insulation is often used when improving the energy efficiency of a structure. While it is an affordable solution, valuable space must be surrendered. However, this could potentially impact the architectural integrity, lessen living standards for the tenant and/or reduce investment income for the owner.
For more than a decade, architects and engineers have utilized Spaceloft® aerogel insulation to solve their toughest insulation challenges. Spaceloft is a top choice to address heat loss in space-challenged environments because it has the lowest thermal conductivity of any commercial thermal insulation available today.
