Single-family Home in Gyenesdiás

April 2019

In a family home built in Gyenesdiás, near Keszthely, the Energocell® foam glass granules were used to thermally insulate the floor downstairs.

The architect planned for the granules to be incorporated instead of the gravel bedding in between the beams of the strip foundation. On the receiving surface the foam glass was placed on a geotextile separation layer, and after compaction was covered with a PE membrane on which the reinforced concrete slab was executed.

Given that the thermal insulation material was already built in under the concrete slab, there is no need for a 12-15-cm thick EPS insulation in the internal layer structure, it can be reduced to 5 cm, and this way subsidence over time is prevented.
