Also in category: Retrofit
Blending tradition and innovation, Diasen Diathonite thermal plasters ensure a sensitive thermal refurbishment can be attained with materials which are compatible, effective and environmentally friendly. Independently verified by numerous test bodies, these thermal plasters demonstrate reduced thermal conductivity and increased porosity, setting them apart from many synthetic insulating materials. They are a favoured option for thermally renovating traditional buildings while maintaining architectural integrity, as showcased by the award-winning Mews House deep retrofit project.
