Insulation with PAVATEX system solutions (D)
In a project to renovate an over 500-year-old building in Landshut, internal thermal insulation of the listed facade and acoustic insulation of the intermediate ceilings were among the main challenges to be faced. The solution came in the form of PAVATEX wood fibre insulating boards which blend in perfectly with the historical fabric of the building and thus satisfy all the physical requirements to the letter. As a result, the newly renovated building now meets the stringent KfW 60 energy standard applicable to new builds in Germany.
