Thermal Insulation

What is the problem?
Undesirably high temperatures during the summer or very low ones during the winter limit your comfort on board of the vessel. Just like at home, it is comfortable to have a thermally well insulated room. Thermal insulation is different from acoustic insulation. To keep the temperature somewhat under control, it is necessary to create an isolated air layer between cold and warm spaces.

What is the solution?
With Akotherm you can thermally insulate. Akotherm is the alternative to mineral glass and rock wool. It is 100% recyclable, it doesn't itch or irritate, so it can also be used when the ship is already furnished.

Fill the space between the bulkheads with Akotherm or Acoustic Cotton Wool, depending on the desired size, and then apply the panelling such as furniture or walls. A minimum thickness of 50 mm is desirable and without gaps in order to prevent leaks. Akotherm and Akoestiwol are products made of polyester fibers and they are moisture and rot resistant, but make sure that the ship is well coated so that rust cannot emerge in the humid conditions. Prevent moisture problems and apply a vapor barrier or vapor permeable foil where necessary.
