Very good, the IsoteQ Normal is equal to a 60 cm thick brick wall in terms of heat insulation. (U=0,26 W/m²K)
As much as a 15 cm thick ferroconcrete wall.
The oldest ones are nearly 50 years old, and no deformation can be detected on them.
Their material is inflammable, in the case of a fire it melts without dripping and without any harmful substance being released from it.
It is totally biologically neutral, it is actually recommended to those suffeting from allergy and asthma.
No, because it is sound-proof to a great extent.
No, because the polystyrene elements have a great tensile strength.
C16-20 kk concrete, 0,145 m³ per square metre.
Three rows are recommended to be filled up at once.
Only by the knots of the reinforcement.
Yes, ordinary damp-proofing is used.
Minimum reinforcement is needed, based on structural calculation.
No, they siply need to be clicked together, owing to their practical shaping.
On its own it can be used up to 5 storeys.
Of course. Up to as cold as -5°C, there is no need for additives either, as polystyrene is a good thermal insulator. In colder weather, however, additives are needed.
Yes, but the control or technical advice of an expert is recommended.
With a thermo-knife, which works quickly, without noise and debris.
Posteriorly, 4-5 cm thick pipes can easily be led through with the aid of a thermo-knife. Planned in advance, even as thick ones as 16 cm.
Any kind of panelling may be used, even smoothcast, with the aid of a lathing. The technology is the same as if Dryvit were used.
Plasterboard or any other ordinary cladding material may be used.
Of course, after having been filled in.
In the traditional way.
Of course, consult our specialists.
With the aid of a polystyrene plug, which hold 15-20 kg each. In the case of heavier objects, the wall has to be borne into as deep as the concrete.
To the concrete core.
It is recommended to plaster the walls as early as possible, but there have been precedents of houses standing naked for several years, but their physical qualities remained unchanged.
No. Partly because polystyrene is not left uncovered, partly because it is a biologically neutral material, in which animals are disinterested.
It is possible that its price is somewhat higher than others’ per square metre. However, if one consideres its advantages, by the time construction comes to an end, the costs are actually lower. It can be quickly constructed, requiring less workforce, smaller heaters and boilers are needed. Moreover, later on it can be run more economically, with significant energy saving.
Depending on the area and the level of complexitiy, a family home ready to move in can be erected within 3-5 months.
The walling elements can be transported aand stored in 1 m³ units. Because of their little weight there is no need for mechanical power.
Of course, all of the necessary concessions are available.
Of course, our products have a 30 year guaranty, in accordance with the contents of the letter of guarantee.

Passive house is not a trademark but a conception. A building that does not need a conventional heating system due to its low heating requirements.
For creating buildings that have the smallest heat loss values possible.
It utilizes the Earth’s thermal energy, heat coming through the windows, and the heat of human body and electric devices, with great efficiency.
Less, than 15 KWh/m²/year.
Yes, it can be constructed from the IsoteQ Passive walling element.
