GLASS WOOL THERMAL INSULATION
Save weight - use GLAVA glass wool insulation where only comfort insulation is required!
Why are effective thermal insulation materials so important?
Much of your ship’s total energy consumption is linked to the energy consumed by your HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system - it represents as much as 35% for cruise ships. Opting for solutions with superior thermal insulation properties for your walls and ducts guarantees increased passenger comfort while lower operating costs.
GLAVA glass wool products have excellent thermal insulation properties due to their unique internal microstructure: 100% fiberized insulation mats, completely free of slugs. For the same thickness, GLAVA glass wool products for marine achieve equivalent or better thermal insulation than lightweight stone-wool products, while being up to 50% lighter. Low weight and high mechanical strength and flexibility make glass wool particularly suitable as comfort insulation on ships.
