Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 2.10.05 pmLocated in the Mall of the Emirates, Sky Dubai is the first indoor ski resort in the United Arab Emirates.

The structure provides a 22,500m2 indoor ski area that is required to maintain a cool temperature in between -1 and 20°C.

Arup consultants approved the use of Spacetherm, which is designed to prevent thermal bridging through a component or element of a structure.

The superior thermal performance of Spacetherm allowed Herald Contracting to insulate the structure’s viewing dingo reveals at the adjoining Kempinski Hotel with just 10mm thickness, whilst providing a thermal conductivity of 0.015 W/mK.

Spacetherm offers high thermal resistance and vapour permeability whilst being highly hydrophobic. It is an ideal choice for timber or steel frame structures and can be cut to a variety of widths and sizes to suit varying applications. It can also be bonded to a wide range of boards and substrates. 

Spacetherm’s thermal performance qualities can be retained for up to 50 years.
