This is a typical solution for semi-heated industrial buildings and warehouses. A continuous wall insulation layer on top of the studs significantly improves the thermal resistance of the structure by preventing cold bridges. In buildings where the indoor air conditions are demanding – such as in high humidity and/or temperature environments – it is especially important to design a proper, tight vapour barrier and adequate ventilation for the facade. 

The fire properties of the insulation strongly affect the fire performance of the final wall structure. All PAROC stone wool products presented here belong to Euro class A1.
