Fight against the capillary rising moisture with IGLU’®
Iglu’® is the leading market product, created and patented for the realization of sanitary spaces, ventilated cavities, under-floor cavities, ventilated floors and roofs during the construction and renovation of civil and industrial buildings.
The ventilated cavity, realized with Iglu’®, is an effective solution to the problem of rising moisture on the flooring, because the under-floor cavity’s ventilation placed under the floor, dries it naturally. Thanks to the cavity, the building can breathe, by constantly eliminating the moisture: this technique was born already at the time of the ancient Romans.
To guarantee an appropriate ventilation, both in renovation and in new buildings, the connection of the ventilated cavity to the outside with simple pipes is necessary.
As a matter of fact, to obtain a natural 'chimney effect' is necessary to position the inlet holes on the northern side at a height just off the ground and the outlet holes on the southern side at a higher point (preferably up to the roof), being careful to connect the various rooms of the foundation grid together so that the entire under-floor cavity is connected. The ducts positioned inside the wall with southern exposure will heat up, causing an upward motion intaking air from the under-floor cavity.
A ventilated under-floor cavity created with Iglu’® represents an effective, quick and economic solution that makes it possible to send humidity and dangerous Radon gas to the atmosphere, which is beneficial to our health.
