External thermal insulation systems

An external thermal insulation system is a layer that insulates the outside cladding of a building to improve thermal efficiency. The superior technical characteristics and aesthetic qualities of KERLITE tiles make them a perfect solution for elegant external thermal insulation systems.

The thermal insulation systems keep the temperature of perimeter walls at milder values, thus generating an active thermal mass that improves the thermal inertia of the building. Not only does thermal insulation reduce heat dispersion, it also optimizes the performance of the wall throughout the seasons.

In the summer, by increasing external insulation, the flow of heat that would require intensive use of air conditioning is greatly reduced.

In the winter, the walls that are insulated from the outside cold create thermal exchange almost exclusively with the internal heated space of the building.

KERLITE tiles, with their technical characteristics and unique beauty, are an ideal solution for thermal insulation systems.

Shipping and logistics are still operational.

Italy, as well as many other countries around the world, is engaged in an aggressive battle against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

In order to keep the number of infections to a minimum, the Italian government has declared the temporary and limited closure of many manufacturing industries.

Nevertheless, certain activities related to the supervision of continuous production plants, such as the ones used in ceramic tile manufacturing, together with the preparation and shipping of stock materials have been permitted.

Therefore our warehouses and shipment departments remain fully operational, in full respect of the recent regulations imposed by the relevant authorities. Our staff will therefore continue to prepare and load merchandise, observing all of the necessary health and safety precautions.

Thanks to the remote working technologies that have already been implemented, all other sales supporting activities as well as your commercial and administrative contacts remain available, as always, to handle your requests.

We therefore wish to inform you that even during this manufacturing standstill, it is still possible to place orders, consult stock availability, request information, and pick up goods from our warehouses.
