Just when you thought you’d seen it all, here’s a new way to insulate basement walls with foam glass by Misapor. More on this topic at my Geopolymer House Blog. (The same material can be used to make lightweight insulating plaster, concrete, etc.)
“Until now, Misapor has mostly been known for providing horizontal insulation. Now as Wall Bags, the foam glass gravel provides insulation for vertical structures such as [basement] walls. These are an ideal solution for a comfortable, energy-optimised structure and for avoiding thermal bridges.
These fabric bags filled with Misapor foam glass gravel surround [basement] walls to provide thermal insulation. As you would expect from Misapor, they are very easy to handle. The Wall Bags are simply positioned against the walls, and these ready-made sacks are then filled. This process allows economical and time-saving renovation in existing [basements]… the closed-cell product does not absorb water and therefore remains a constant weight.
