FOAMGLAS® insulation beats the swimming pool test

When designing swimming pools, FOAMGLAS® cellular glass insulation acts as a vapour barrier to prevent underside corrosion of metal roofs. Its 600 kPa compressive strength, dimensional stability and thermal performance are unaffected by excessive humidity, vapour transfer and chemical cleaning agents and it will not generate toxic fumes in the presence of heat.

When restoring the Grade 1-listed Snitterton Hall, construction of a below ground swimming pool required rebuilding of the curtilage wall. FOAMGLAS TAPERED T4+ was specified by Bench Architects to eliminate risk of interstitial condensation, insulate the concrete deck above the pool and support the waterproofing layer and green roof build-up.
