Ekovilla slab

The Ekovilla slab is a breathable insulation that is easy to handle. The dense fiber structure keeps air inside, ensuring proper thermal insulation. The rigidity of the slab keeps corners straight, which means the insulation really fills the space intended for it – even the corners. In a building supply store you can buy our Ekovilla saw which is perfect for cutting our insulation slabs. Cutting is also convenient with the Ekovilla knife by Fiskars.

Qualities

The impressive slab has been created to respond to the needs of builders and contractors, and packs all the good qualities of Ekovilla:

  • Wood fibre insulation made of renewable natural resources 
  • Breathing and safe product with over three decades of experience
  • Good thermal insulation capacity
  • Carbon-binding, reduces carbon footprint throughout its life cycle
  • Resilient and firm, making it easy to install
  • Can be used in both new construction and renovation

Ekovilla slab is a breathing insulation slab which is comfortable to handle. Dense fibre structure keeps the air inside and guarantees good thermal insulation. The firmness of the insulation keeps the slab corners straight to fill the reserved space all the way to the corners. For cutting the slab, we have created a Ekovilla saw and a Ekovilla knife (Fiskars), both being readily available at hardware stores throughout the country.

Ekovilla slab is suitable for both new construction and renovation projects. As the popularity of breathing houses grows, more and more prefabricated house elements are pre-insulated with Ekovilla slab at the manufacturing plant.

Technical aspects

  • Declared thermal conductivity ʎD (23,50) 0,039 W/(m K)
  • Design value ʎd 0,039 W/(mK)
  • Fire class, Euro fire class E
  • Density 32-42 kg/m3

The Ekovilla slab is suitable for both new buildings and renovating. As breathable houses gain more popularity, more and more elements of prefabricated houses are already insulated with Ekovilla slab at the factory. More about installing the Ekovilla slab here. 

Ekovilla in new buildings

The Ekovilla slab brings new possibilities to wood construction. The Ekovilla slab also brings the excellent properties of Ekovilla more widely into the house industry as well as to the customers of readymade houses. Many manufacturers use Ekovilla for wall insulation. Further details from your house dealer.

  • Top floor walls

    Install the slab in the vertical part of the frame grid.

    The insulation is to be installed before the windscreen, except for the cold part of the grid, where the windscreens are applied before installing the insulation.

  • Ceiling roofs

    The regulated (0.09 W / m2K) density for warm ceilings structure can be created by using, for example, 100 mm Ekovilla slab between the lower beams and 310 mm of blown wool.

    Air barrier paper overlaps 200-300 mm, spacing k 300 mm. The eaves area is protected with wind deflector cardboard.

  • Floors

  • Ekovilla strips

    Ekovilla strips are a wood-fiber thermal insulation that can be applied by hand. This insulation material is packed in 10 kg paper bags. The strips are suitable for smaller spaces, additional insulation and insulation repairs. This loose-fiber insulation can be poured straight from the bag into the insulation space. For improved thermal insulation you can fluff the strips in a bucket with a render mixer or a paint mixer.

    Amounts for different applications:

    • Attic floor: approx. 4 bags / m3
    • Ground floor: approx. 5 bags / m3
    • Walls: approx. 6 bags / m3

    Preparations:

    • Transport protected from the rain and snow
    • Store in a dry place
    • Wear P2 respirator during installation
    • Make sure the wall windshield extends above the insulation
    • Whenever possible, install a wind deflector
    • Make sure there is a ventilation slit of at least 30 mm between the roof and the windshield
    • Make sure the chimney perimeter is fire-insulated according to manufacturer’s instructions

The Ekovilla slab in renovation

Ekovilla is perfect for additional insulation. Our insulation creates a uniform insulation layer, consisting of the same material as the sawdust and log structures, allowing the old structure to breathe. As a wood-based insulation Ekovilla gives the wall better moisture capacity, improving its functionality.
