Spacetherm A1 is a flexible, high-performance, silica aerogel-based insulation material of limited combustibility used for exterior and interior applications. The product is used to optimise the thermal performance and fire properties of façade systems in a number of ways. These include enhancing the thermal performance of the ventilated façade, and addressing thermal bridging in the façade. Spacetherm A1 is also useful in minimising thermal bridges around windows in areas such as window reveals and roller shutter cases.
With a thermal conductivity of less than 0.02 W/mK, Spacetherm A1 performance credentials qualify it as one of the best insulation materials available worldwide. Engineered for space-critical applications, the product offers low thermal conductivity, superior compression strength, plus breathability allied to hydrophobic characteristics. Spacetherm A1 can be also be supplied in a variety of finishes, the substantial layers meeting the requirements for A1 classification (insulation, MgO and plasterboard).
