The perceived onset of global warming has dictated that thermal insulation values associated with building regulations will be substantially increased in the near future. With Styro Stone the required U-Values are already acheived, negating the necessity for additional insulation.
The 250 stones (Neopor) have a U-Value of 0.25 (W/m) resulting in a wall thickness of only 250 mm (excluding finishes)
The 350 stones (Neopor) have a U-Value of 0.14 (W/m) resulting in a wall thickness of 350 mm (excluding finishes) making them the ideal product for construction of passive energy homes.
Styro Stone walls allow the installation of ducting for air conditioning and energy-saving heat exchange systems (Standard in Scandinavian homes), resulting in further energy savings.
