Isolergrund foundations offer many advantages which promote building sales
Improves a building’s energy performance
Isolergrund improves a building’s energy performance by reducing heat losses to the ground. It incorporates ground insulation and protection against inward air movement which together act as an additional protective barrier.
Fresh and healthy living environment
Properties built on a Isolergrund foundation provide a fresh living environment. Isolergrund is the building’s protection against the ground contaminants, preventing spores, bacteria and gases that can cause asthma, allergy and fatigue.
Comfortable floor temperatures and condense-free surfaces
Comfortable floor temperatures year-round regardless of outdoor temperature and wind fluctuations. Isolergrund keeps the climate underneath the building at a near constant, warm and dry level, ensuring relative humidity does not exceed 80%RH
Total protection against mould and radon gas
Total protection against mould, radon gas, odour and microorganisms present in the soil Isolergrund provides a sealed and negatively pressurised enclosure, proven by test in each case.
Flood protection is Intrinsic to the design of the Isolergrund system. The 600mm clear void height, underfloor seal and free-draining base offer the building protection against damage during flooding.
Access under the building
Ready access under the building for new building services installations and their maintenance. A purpose made, lockable inspection hatch is integrated into the side wall of the system for this purpose.
