The STEICO Group, headquartered in Feldkirchen near Munich, is the world‘s largest manufacturer of ecological wood fibre insulating materials. For decades STEICO insulation materials have been used to protect buildings around the world against cold, heat, humidity and wind.
STEICO wood fibre insulation materials are manufactured exclusively from fresh, untreated coniferous wood from sustainable forestry.
STEICO provides suitable boards for various requirements and working methods in small and large formats as well as with square edges or with tongue and groove.
Steico Therm is a rigid thermal insulation board made from sustainably sourced natural wood fibres for application in roof, wall and floor systems. Steico Therm is a square edged board where as Steico Internal is a tongue and groove board.
Easy and fast fixing wood fibre board with superior insulating properties in both summer and winter. High compressive strength, water vapour open (helps regulate the indoor climate of a building).
The board has a light side (machine sanded in the factory) and a darker unsanded side, the lighter side is the plaster carrying face.
Steico Therm is water vapour open, which means that water vapour can pass freely through it. This is critical for solid wall constructions to ensure the structure maintains its breathability. By correctly setting this eco friendly board to a wall built with lime mortar and plastered with lime plaster, the structure can continue to breathe as it should and you will get an up-grade to the thermal performance of your house.
Steico Therm is a square edged wood fibre board that has many uses in eco friendly homes. We predominately use it for internal wall insulation, however it is can also be used to infill between rafters and joists although Steico Flex 036 would be better for this application.
