PENOPLEX® Heat-insulating slabs have wide scope of application: they are actively used in civil and industrial construction, during the laying of the railroads and highways, building of airfields, engineering communications heat-insulation. Possessing low heat conductivity rate, zero water absorption, high durability, reliability, environmental friendliness and longevity, PENOPLEX® slabs are perfect material for heat-insulation of various constructs in any climatic regions.
Heat-insulation of buildings and constructions
PENOPLEX FOUNDATION® slabs application as a heater allows to solve the main problems arising during basements installation and construction of foundations. They are successfully applied for heat-insulation of the traditional and low-buried base, when winterization base from the inside, when warming of the ground floors, and also in construction on permafrost soils.
PENOPLEX FOUNDATION® slabs reliably protect a waterproofing layer and provides ground waters’ drainage, reducing its pressure upon underground elements of construction (a base). They are not subjected to biodecay therefore no danger in contacting with water and the soil arises.
First floors’ warming is made for reduction of heat losses in buildings without a cellar or with unheated cellar. In these cases the heat-insulating material PENOPLEX® is a perfect heater. Efficiency of this kind of warming remains at high level even during operating in the most extreme conditions: influence of moisture, low temperatures and mechanical loadings.
This kind of construction takes on special significance during building in areas with water-bearing layers and ground waters.
PENOPLEX®COMFORT or PENOPLEX FOUNDATION® slabs are applied for heat-insulation of floors, depending on estimated loads on a floor’s construction.
The house loses about 45% of heat through the poorly isolated walls. For this reason it is better to choose the most reliable and effective heater for walls’ heat insulation – PENOPLEX WALL®: it is steady against deformations, eco-friendly, moisture resistant, with the maximum ability of a heat-shielding.
PENOPLEX WALL® makes an optimal bonding effect with finishing materials. It allows to achieve a perfect microclimate and to realize any constructive decision on heat insulation of walls: warming of multilayered walls ("a well laying"), walls with front slabs covering, with plaster systems, warming of walls on the inside, additional warming, and also warming of frame walls.
The building loses about 20% of heat through the poorly isolated roof. PENOPLEX ROOF® effectively protects the house from undesirable heatlosses, possessing such characteristics as high durability, convenience in installation, lightness and almost zero water absorption.
PENOPLEX ROOF® doesn't absorb moisture, additional protection against rain water or snow is not required to it. Because of reliable heater, the roof will be uniformly heat-isolated and protected from extreme temperatures’ influence.
PENOPLEX ROOF® slabs have a special G-shaped edge on all sides which allows to join them perfectly precisely and to provide a continuous heat-insulation layer without "cold bridges" formation.
Heat-insulation of roads
Traffic-bearing surface protection against the impact of frosty swelling forces is one of the most serious problems which experts operating in road construction sphere face with. PENOPLEX® 45 being the qualitative heat-insulating material of new generation and possessing excellent indicators of durability and reliability, allows to cope with it successfully.
As a part of a road construction PENOPLEX® slabs represent some kind of temperature barrier between layers of a traffic-bearing surface and the soil which is below. This material application allows soil to be always in a positive temperatures zone, swelling soil doesn't freeze through and, as a result, it doesn't cause a swelling. PENOPLEX® works similarly in the conditions of permafrost. Heat-insulation layers made of PENOPLEX® slabs allow to keep permafrost and to exclude sags of a subgrade.
PENOPLEX® slabs are actively applied not only in construction of highways, but also in construction and reconstruction of tracks and runways of airfields.
Heat-insulation of engineering networks
In the conditions of severe Russian climate qualitative heat-insulation of gas pipelines and water supply systems, and also other engineering communications is necessary for prevention of their freezing through (cause it may result in emergencies).
PENOPLEX FOUNDATION® heat-insulation is perfectly matched for these purposes as it possesses such characteristics as low heat conductivity rate, zero water absorption, durability and longevity, resistance to corrosive medium impact.
Pipelines can be warmed both with segments, and with PENOPLEX FOUNDATION® slabs. Heat-insulation of cold and hot pipes of water-supply system, as well as of the sewerage passing in the ground with a delivery vehicle temperature about +85С is recommended to be carried out with application of slabs.
The box sizes in the ground and thickness of slabs depends on the freezing depth and on laying depth. When warming pipes with open laying, protection of segments by sheet steel or a similar material is necessary.
The heater PENOPLEX FOUNDATION® has all necessary certificates.
