The fantastic thermal transforming properties of Spacetherm WL (Wall Liner) have been demonstrated in a DIY project for a residential property, solving the condensation issues associated with solid walls, improving warmth and protecting the health of the occupants.
The building, a traditional brick built property in Arbroath, Angus, was originally used as a doctor’s surgery with accommodation above, and later converted for domestic use. The current owners were faced with the typical challenge of a small box room, which could accommodate a single bed, and little else. Built-in cupboards were present along an external brick wall, which was very cold to touch. As the warm internal air reached the cold exterior walls of the cupboards, a constant stream of condensation was running down the inside of the wall.
