A great deal of energy could be saved, particularly in the construction industry—both in new construction and renovation projects. Unless efforts intensify, the German construction industry will clearly not be in a very good position to reach its climate goals.
Building insulation plays a particularly important role here. Good thermal insulation for the building envelope is the most important condition for creating energy-efficient buildings.
CALOSTAT® opens the door to insulation materials that would once have been impossible.
Buildings from the 1960s – 1980s: Today’s developers often tear down these existing structures and replace them with new ones. In addition to inadequate fire protection, the reason for doing this is often the lack of space for appropriate insulation. CALOSTAT® allows builders to retain the existing structure while providing the highly efficient, fire-proof insulation needed to preserve the building.
Buildings on the historic register: Many old buildings have beautiful facades that must be saved, yet they are poorly insulated. Most of the time, interior insulation is either insufficient or takes up too much living space. Thanks to CALOSTAT®, builders can install thin, lightweight insulation—a win for cities and for the environment.
Problem-solver for thermal bridges: Finally, no more compromises. Areas inside dormers, behind downspouts, or behind boxes for roller shutters can be difficult to insulate, because space is too limited. This results in thermal bridges, which compromise all of the insulation in a building. CALOSTAT® offers a safe, elegant solution to the problem.
By reducing the thickness of insulation by up to 50%, CALOSTAT® eliminates the need for additional construction materials, thereby generating immediate savings—and helping the environment. After all, if there’s no need to install a material, there’s also no need to manufacture or transport it.
