Flat roofs offer enormous potential as a roof garden, living space or a place to relax. Many million meters of a flat roof is not yet green but they don't have to stay that way. Flat roof systems have supporting structures, mostly in a concrete ceiling that has many functional layers. Almost every one of these systems needs an insulation layer. The insulation layer warms in winter, cools in summer, and saves energy. Not only that, but it also reduces CO2 emissions and protects against structural damage. The characteristics of the insulation material are important such as its thermal conductivity, it's pressure stability, it's thickness and its weight. Also important are it's the ease of processing its compatibility with inclined components and its favorable environmental properties. Flat components made from the insulation material glass wool tick all of these boxes.
The insulation blanket works like built-in infra-red absorbers and ensures that even more heat stays inside the building during the winters and outside during the summers. Glass wool has now proven its capabilities worldwide in many applications and building projects. One example would be our modern-day building whose flat roof has been installed with glass wool blankets. The thermal blanket insulation is light weighted, easy to cut to size, and easy to install. It simply needs to be laid directly over the roof or under the roof and screwed in. The same goes for the inclined blankets which are made to fit a desired angle on the roof. To summarise flat roof insulation with glass wool combining outstanding insulation properties with high stability and low weight and a good price to performance ratio.
