Sky Dubai has used Spacetherm insulation to prevent thermal bridging in its 22,500m2 indoor ski area.
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.
