Roof construction

Foamit can be used as infill for flat-roofed ceiling structures.  Foam glass is lighter than expanded clay, and can be used to achieve sufficient thermal insulation for the structure. 

Thanks to its frictional surface, Foamit provides a load-bearing platform for work during filling – the Foamit layer can be walked across during installation, which speeds up the work. Foamit stays in place during a pour rather than spreading around, allowing for an even pouring layer. When installed according to requirements, Foamit won’t crack underfoot, nor will water puddles form on the roof over time. This also makes it possible to make more accurate and faster pours. 

During renovation work, Foamit’s frictional surface prevents leakage into excavated trenches, which makes the work much faster and easier. 

Foamit can be installed with a lifting bucket or blower. 

Foamit is classified as fire class A1 and carries an M1-classification. Foamit is produced 100% from recycled materials and contains no organic material or sulphur. Foamit has the lowest carbon footprint in its class, and can be used in Joutsen-labelled buildings.
