Controlling airtightness – better indoor air
Uncontrolled air leaks in structures can reduce indoor air quality, since they allow air to enter the building from the wrong places, impurely. Sealing can also improve energy efficiency by preventing heat leaks as well as air leaks. Kiilto offers a researched compatible system from leveling to finishing.
Examples of sealing applications and solutions:
NOTE: Solutions for sealing applications must always be designed for the particular site in question.
Joint between floor and wall
Significant air leaks were found in a detached house built in the 1990s, coming from cracks where the floor meets the walls. This affected both the indoor air quality and the energy-efficiency of the building. Solved using Kiilto Pro Airblock Fiber sealant, which can be brushed on.
The concrete on the ceiling of a public building was porous and had holes in it after HVAC changes. There were also air leaks where the ceiling meets the wall. As a solution, large holes were prefilled with cement-based screeds and the ceiling was sprayed with Kiilto Pro Airblock Coat.
Structural joints in windows
Air leaks found in the windows of a school building were eliminated using Kiilto A 215 special adhesive sealant. The sealing of hundreds of windows was notable not only for the airtight final result, but also for the cost-effectiveness of the chosen solution.
