weber.mur clima

Saint-Gobain Weber has developed an environmentally-friendly alternative to the air conditioning system with the innovative climate regulating interior plasters weber.mur clima 23 (German) and weber.mur clima 26 (German). These interior plasters control the room temperature in a physical way. If the room temperature rises above 23° Centigrade or over 26° Centigrade (depending on the chosen variant) the plaster absorbs the heat, stores it and releases it once again if the room temperature sinks. The effect of the innovative climate interior plaster is based on the integrated phase-change material, also known as PCM (Phase Change Material). The PCM is integrated into the plaster packed in micro-capsules and cast there as a latent heat store. The micro-encapsulated paraffin used in weber.mur clima 23/26 melts at 23-26° C. And thereby absorbs large quantities of heat. By comparison: a 15 mm thick climate plaster coating of weber.mur clima 26 corresponds approximately to the thermal mass of a 70-mm thick plasterboard wall.

Benefits:

  • temperature regulating
  • creates a healthy living climate
  • high yield
  • for ceilings and walls

ISOVER Vario system

The airtight and humidity management system Vario (German) from ISOVER is a valuable solution for a perfectly insulated building shell. The Vario system with its mutually coordinated components ensures that neither unpleasant draughts occur nor that humidity can penetrate into the roof structure. The variable climate membrane prevents condensation forming and makes re-drying of the construction possible. The robust climate membrane Vario KM Duplex UV (German) is at the core of the Vario system.

Unlike conventional moisture barriers, the patented climate membrane repeatedly compensates for dampness and thus keeps the roof timbers dry in the long run. It is reinforced with a special fleece which makes it even more robust and makes installation much easier. And it has even more to offer: a UV protection which reliably protects the membrane from harmful solar radiation during the construction phase - behind glass for up to 18 months.

Benefits

  • For perfectly insulated building shells
  • Airtight and windproof
  • Variable climate membrane as moisture protection
  • Prevents condensation, makes re-drying possible

SWISSPACER

At the edge bonds, insulating glazing solutions are kept “at a distance“ with the help of a spacer profile. Thus the inert gas or air-filled gap between the panes on which the insulating effect of the glazing is based arises. Due to the better insulation qualities of the spacer from SWISSPACER we reach higher temperatures on the edge of the glass – the “warm edge”. This significantly reduces the danger of condensation. Higher temperatures on the glass edge simultaneously also mean less cold radiation and thus provide more room cosiness and a comfortable living climate.

Benefits

  • higher temperatures at the edge of the glass – the “warm edge”
  • reduces the danger of condensation
  • less cold radiation
  • comfortable living climate

SHEERFILL® ETFE

SHEERFILL® ETFE films are frequently used in multi-layer cushion constructions as lightweight and durable roof membranes. These transparent constructions provide a very high light transmission of the complete light spectrum. In addition, the surfaces are self-cleaning, the material is weather-proof, UV-resistant, non-combustible and can be printed with shading designs. Depending on the type of construction, U values of 1.18 can W/m*K can be achieved.

In cooler regions, heating costs can be reduced. Due to high material transparency and enhanced thermal isolation, solar energy is gathered and kept inside a building. In warmer regions, with intensive solar radiation the inside can be kept pleasantly cool by means of shading and insulation and nevertheless a high light quality can be achieved. Sheerfill ® ETFE is outstandingly suitable for roof constructions over atriums, swimming pools and shopping centres, but also for stadium or other façade applications.

Benefits

  • good thermal isolation: U value of 1.18 W/m*K can be achieved
  • good thermal isolation: U value of 1.18 W/m*K can be achieved
  • cool regions: solar energy is gathered and kept inside a building
  • warm regions: with solar radiation and shading, the inside is kept pleasantly cool
  • non-combustible
  • weather-proof and self-cleaning

PAM ELIXAIR

With PAM ELIXAIR (German) PAM GLOBAL® offers an effective and environmentally-friendly system which uses the external air, in connection with the natural temperature in the ground (geothermal energy), in a perfect interplay for a pleasant room climate. As below ground at a depth of about 1.5 metres the temperature is between 7 and 12°C degrees all the year round, by means of a refined pipe system aspirated external air can be used. The controlled home ventilation with heat recovery provides pleasant room temperatures in winter as in summer. The heating energy requirement and the cooling energy requirement are considerably reduced and, with that, also the CO2 emissions.

As a robust, indestructible and sustainable material, ductile cast iron is perfectly suited for this application. Cast iron has higher heat conductivity than plastic materials. A big advantage of PAM ELIXAIR is the form-stability of the system and it can be laid deep underground without any problems.
