Solution

Top Floor accessible

The basic insulating module for the simple insulation of the top floor

 

Advantages

General advantages

  • top thermal insulation values
  • outstanding protection against heat
  • sustainable recycling product
  • no hauling of insulating material
  • fast and clean
  • no wastage, no joints
  • attic does not have to be completely cleared out
  • attic remains accessible

Insulation is always a gain

There is no other part of the building where so much energy can be safed with so little effort!
With an insulation thickness of 32 cm (on a area of 100 m²) you can save 530 litres of fuel oil per year!

 

Installation procedure

  1. 01

    Preparation

    The WoodyFIX elements are delivered bundled together in packages on pallets. They are handily portioned so that they can be transported up to the attic with no great effort. Simply stick the mo-dules together where you need them.
    The insulation of the top floor is legally prescribed in Austria with a thermal insulation value (U-value) of at least 0.2 W/m²K and in Germany with 0.24 W/m²K.


  2. 02

    Set up modules

    Set up the modules at a centre-centre distance of approx. 80 cm. Then place the 4/6 laths into the cut-outs provided (without screwing).


  3. 03

    Laying the floor boards

    Lay the floor boards and fix them. With an 18 mm OSB wood-based panel, the construction is an accessible system with a very high load capacity.


  4. 04

    Injection

    Afterwards the construction is filled with the ISOCELL cellulose.

House in Palting

The potential for an energetic improvement of the Moser family’s large house in Palting was recognised and tackled. The WoodyFIX elements were brought into the attic and stuck together and the OSB boards were attached. Afterwards the hollow space was filled with ISOCELL cellulose.

St. Marien elementary school in Weichstetten

The district of St. Marien chose the WoodyFIX system for the insulation of the attic of its elementary school. Apart from the use of an ecological insula-ting material – St. Marien is a ‘climate protection district’ – a deciding factor was that the attic remains usable as an accessible area. With the insulation of the top floor the elementary school in St. Marien now saves 42 % heating energy.
