Warm foundations are a contemporary construction technology that employs styrofoam stay-in-place formwork. This innovative approach reduces construction time, lowers costs, and provides additional thermal insulation to building foundations. Lost formwork, in this context, refers to lightweight styrofoam blocks that help minimize heat loss and eliminate thermal bridges.
Thermal window sills, also known as warm sills, are styrofoam profiles installed as a thermal insulation beneath windows. They serve a dual purpose: replacing traditional window sills while providing effective internal and external insulation. Additionally, warm window sills prevent moisture infiltration into buildings and eliminate thermal bridges.
