The significance of thermal insulation
Building physicists respond to criticism of insulation. A publication by the KEA Climate Protection and Energy Agency
In a booklet entitled “The significance of thermal insulation”, six scientists and engineers have provided an expert response to various prejudices, objections and misunderstandings related to heat insulation. prestigious institutions wish to contribute towards a more objective debate on the issue. Their conclusion is that with proper planning and execution, structural thermal insulation is not only unobjectionable but actually offers considerable advantages.

IBP REPORT 539
External thermal insulation composite systems (ETICS) have been in use since the early 1960s. In the beginning, these insulation systems were only applied using polystyrene hard-foam boards and synthetic resin plasters. Later on, mineral systems were also used. As early as in the 1970s, the Holzkirchen branch of the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP was commissioned at several times to examine completed buildings to determine the reliability of these systems under practical conditions.Download (1,006.54 KB)
European Application Guideline for ETICS
Quality, safety and durability of ETICS depend the quality of the system, the design and the appropriate installation of qualified craftsmen. Since 2011 EAE’s application guideline offers general advice and includes lots of information about construction details. In addition installation manuals of system holders have to be considered.
The European Application Guideline is translated in several languages and used in Member States by EAE member associations. If you are interested in national versions please contact our member associations directly.Download (10.24 MB)
