THEinsulated panelsthey are widespread forisolate thermally (or thermo-acoustically) a home. THEinsulating panelsthey prevent the exchange of heat because they are made of insulating materials, that is characterized by a low thermal conductivity.
THEinsulated panelsthey are made of materials such as polyurethane foam, rock wool, glass wool, synthetic rubbers, expanded polystyrene, ceramic fiber, cork and other natural thermal insulators. THEinsulated panelsrepresent an excellent possibility ofthermal insulationgiving way to increase the energy efficiency of a building.
THEinsulated panelsthey are widely used to cover roofs, internal and external walls and also to cover floors, based on the model and structure of theinsulated panel they have been studiedfixing systemsad hoc.
THEfixing systemsgodsinsulated panelsallow you to perform the installation in a simpler or more complex way: somefixing systemsthey allow dry installation, without affecting the existing wall in the least, just as we saw in the articleFit insulating foam panels.
Insulated panels, fixing systems
Depending on the type of structure on which theinsulated panel, there are severalfixing systems. It is very important to choose the correct one fix itin order to create a durable, robust and resistant structure.
Mount the insulated wall panels
For mount the insulated panelson the wall, thefixing systemtakes advantage of the special joints. Theassemblygodsinsulated panelswall can be schematized in simple steps:
- Preparation of the panel
Cut the panels one cm shorter than the height of the wall to which it will be fixed. For example: if the wall measures 210 cm, theinsulated panelit must be 119 cm in order to adhere perfectly.
- Preparation of the mortar
Prepare an adhesive mortar and arrange it in piles (about 40-50 cm away from each other) on the back of the samepanel.Glue the first panel to the wall making it perfectly match the ceiling and, by placing 45 ° beveled wedges at the base, you will ensure that the panel is perfectly blocked.
- The fixing
To fix the panel to the part, help yourself with a mallet: by tapping gently on the panel you will have to make the mortar adhere to the wall. If the mortar is the glue for the wall, thefixing systemit concerns the adhesion of the panels to each other. Glue the other panels fixing with the special joints they are equipped withinsulated panelsfrom the wall. Such fixing systems they can be hidden or clearly visible.
Installation of insulated panels for roofs
THEinsulated panelsthey must be placed directly on the load-bearing structure of the roof and therefore on the starting strips along the eaves line, at the maximum possible slope.
There is no rule for the direction in which to proceed for assembly, each manufacturer has its own specifications for assembling the various panels and therefore we invite you to follow the instructions on the label. Some manufacturers invite you to continue with the assembly from bottom to top, others from left to right .... Before starting, remember to read the manufacturer's directions.
In case ofinsulated panelsfor roof, fixing is done by mechanical supports given by steel anchoring screws already provided in the purchase package. THEinsulated panelsthey must be fixed next to each other, without leaving empty spaces.
