Key contribution

ISOVER offers a large range of thermal insulation solutions, made of sustainable materials, that meet all of the technical requirements of the different applications in residential and non-residential buildings, for both new builds and renovations.

Aim

To ensure that appropriate thermal comfort levels are achieved through design, and controls are selected to maintain a thermally comfortable environment for occupants within the building.

Requirement summary

A thermal modelling of the building has to be carried out, setting local comfort criteria in line with ISO7730:2005. It needs to include both winter and summer comfort. This modelling is analyzed to define the temperature control strategy of the building (heating, cooling systems): zoning, level of occupant control, interaction within the different systems, and information of users

Our contribution

ISOVER makes thermal modeling possible by providing Building Information Modeling (BIM) files for project simulations. Our solutions are ideal for large construction projects, with metal, wood or steel frames. Our VARIO® systems offer appropriate product options to promote airtightness and moisture resistance. VARIO® membranes are able to adapt to changing climatic conditions, in turn protecting the building fabric in both winter, when moisture is locked out from entering, and in summer, when moisture is allowed to leave the structure.
