Ceiling and Floor Technology
No matter how professional
the installation of a typical residential ceiling and
insulation, it is inevitable that gaps in the vapour barrier
will lead to moisture problems
and possible truss uplift. Nudura has virtually
eliminated these and similar problems with its Ceiling
Technology. These sheets of 100% recyclable, expanded
polystyrene are molded with embedded wood strapping and
an overlap on the perimeter for easy and efficient installation.
The overlap reduces air filtration to such a degree that
no other vapour barrier is required. Used in a double
layer, it significantly reduces thermal bridging increasing
the energy-efficiency and comfort ability of the building.
The foam contains no CFC's or HCFC's making it safe to
use and an ideal, economical insulation solution for retro-fitting
uninsulated floors, walls and ceilings in homes, garages,
cottages or commercial buildings.
The floor of a building is
often the most ignored surface when it comes to insulation.
However, it is the backbone of the comfort ability a structure
can provide to its in habitants. Nudura offers a
cost-effective, 100% recyclable insulation which is used
under the basement slab to provide a layer of protection
against the transference from the ground and a base for
the internal heating/cooling system of the building. Nudura's
Floor Technology is a molded expanded polystyrene foam
sheet that is safe (contains no harmul CFC's or HCFC's)
and easy to use (designed with a ship lap and a tongue
and groove interlock). It also provides an energy efficient
base for radiant heating.
