THERMAL MASS WITH NUDURA ICF CONCRETE WALLS

WHAT IS THERMAL MASS? HOW DO ICF WALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE? 

The solid mass of the NUDURA wall has some very unique qualities. The monolithic concrete is layered between two continuous layers of 67mm thick EPS foam, which isolates the concrete and significantly reduces the flow of heat through the wall.

NUDURA walls have a high storage capacity with low thermal conductivity, providing the most  useful level of Thermal Mass. This helps to stabilize the internal temperature from day to night temperature fluctuations and provides a largely self-regulating environment. The result is less energy consumption, reducing the need for mechanical heating and cooling, resulting in greater cost savings throughout the year


ADVANTAGES OF NUDURA ICF CONCRETE WALLS
  • Less to cool and heat. Buildings with exterior NUDURA ICF Concrete Walls, also utilize less energy to heat and cool than similarly insulated buildings with brick, timber or steel walls.
  • NUDURA ICF Concrete walls have a high storage capacity with low thermal conductivity, it provides the most useful level of Thermal Mass. This helps to stabilize the internal temperature from day to night temperature fluctuations
