- Comfort insulation can be used alone where there is no other demand for the deck and bulkhead.
- Comfort insulation can also be used together with fire insulation or sound insulation.
When the minimum insulation thickness has been found for protecting against sound or fire, the thermal transmission (U-value) of this material can be calculated from the λ-value. If a higher insulation level is requested the construction can be improved by adding an extra layer of a lower density product.
In all cases of insulation towards cold temperatures the wool must always be covered by a vapour tight surface. This surface can be aluminium foil or another kind of vapour barrier. The gaps should be tightly sealed with alu tape.
When adding additional insulation to a fire construction it should be documented and approved by the local surveyor.
