Thermal insulation

Due to the increasing demands on living comfort and new technical possibilities, structural thermal insulation is becoming more and more important.
Surrounding areas such as roofs, basements and exterior walls are usually insulated. Exterior walls receive thermal insulation composite systems, core insulation or insulation materials in rear-ventilated facades. In the case of listed old buildings, external insulation is often dispensed with or thermal insulation plaster is used. Often it is insulated from the inside.
