Unger’s ultra-thin, wood fibre insulation UdiN 2CM is incredibly simple to install. That makes it a great material for self-builders and DIYers, looking for a low impact, easy install insulation method. This short video shows you just how easy installation is.
When using the ultra-thin wood fibre insulation board, UdiIN2CM – which other materials are required to ensure the best finish? A foundation coat is used to bond the board to the wall. Over the top of the board, a lime render is best used for a perfect finish.
What makes a good insulation material? Presumably, a thicker material equates to a better insulation value? Here Chris Brookman discusses UdiIN2CM and whether or not a thin board, can make a good insulation material.
he installation of the UdiIN2CM wood fibre board is easy and simple. The question is, once the board has been installed, what should happen next? Leave for 24 hours while the foundation coat sets. After that, you can use any sort of lime plaster to finish.
Here we look at a whether an ultra-thin (20mm) insulation board can really reduce heat loss. We compared bare brick work with the use of UdiIN2CM and the results were pretty amazing. The board is perfect for anyone looking to insulate walls within a tight space, such as those found in older buildings.
An overview of the innovative and unique UdiRECO wood fibre insulation boards. This board can adapt to uneven surfaces, removing the need for a levelling render to be applied. UdiRECO can be used internally with UdiMULTIGRUND, a special vapour control plaster. Externally it uses the UdiPERL rrender system.
This video gives an excellent guide to how to install the Lithotherm underfloor heating system. For non German speakers it gives a very useful visual guide of the process. The video goes through the installation of the insulation underneath the tiles, installation of the perimeter insulation and then the tiles themselves.
In this video we run through the very important detailing around windows and window sills. The sills must project over the final surface by at least 40mm and this often means you need to put on deeper sills. This can be done by using the UdiALU sills or by extending existing sills.
This video shows the basics of fixing the wood fibre boards on to a timber frame and how to fix the boards and how to cut out around windows and doors. Most of the same principles apply to fixing to masonry but you must be careful that there are no voids behinds the boards.
