WHY IS THERMAL INSULATION IMPORTANT?
Based on the experts’ forecast, with the predicted increase in consumption, the coal feedstock resources will be depleted in a few decades. Based on the data we don’t have to count on a lack of energy, but according to the laws of the market, shrinking resources will result above-average price increases as well. Beside all of that, ecological and environmental charges and taxes will contribute to the increase of the prices.
During the energy status examination, we should not forget the energy which is used for the production of the building materials.
With an EPS insulation of medium thickness, for the winter heating season, in three months we save as much energy as much was needed to produce the material itself. At the production of the foam, an emission of nearly 1.2 t carbon dioxide is produced. However, if a building is insulated with this material, in fifty years the emission will be reduced by 292 t of carbon dioxide.

Because of the rising energy costs and the urging questions of the protection of the environment, the energy conscious construction and thoughtful design of our buildings became a priority. Beside the ideal orientation of the buildings, and the functional layout of the premises, the designing of the continuous thermic sheath, the selection of the proper insulation material and its thickness play an important role as well.
Whether we take in consideration the requirements of the passive house, or the energy standards currently in force, it is clear that the period of a shell structures wane away.
We are convinced that the most cost-effective solutions are the IsoShell walling elements. With the help of the IsoShell building blocks, already at the structure building phase we can achieve a thermally insulated, cold bridge free, airtight structure, that provides significant advantages over other building systems.
The ICF building system is a globally recognized construction technology that was been developed in Germany, nearly sixty years ago.The main difference of the system, compared to conventional masonry, which is as well its biggest advantage, is that we take care of the superstructure and the thermal insulation in one single step during the construction, saving in this way time and energy.
