The thermal insulation of foundations from outside is necessary for protecting load-bearing structures against the effects of humidity and frost. The most common ribbon-type foundation structures are made of reinforced concrete or bricks. Both types of materials are frost-resistant; if water penetrates these materials and freezes there, the frost resistance of these materials significantly reduces. Correct thermal insulation of foundations from outside and simultaneous creation of hydro insulation layer can protect the foundation against early loss of durability capacities.
Protection of foundations
LLC TENAPORS offers a formed thermal insulation polystyrene foam with reduced water absorption. Such a material in combination with hydro insulation protects the unity of load-bearing structures against ground waters and effects of other humidity sources. Furthermore, polystyrene foam is frost-resistant and its ling-term use does not show degrading of material properties. Moreover, EPS materials show very good thermal technical properties protecting structures against frost penetration. Both these properties protect ground (on which there is foundations of building) against protrusions and structural lowering.
