ModuSec provides the lowest U value available for a 100mm thick construction. This low U value effectively eliminates solar gain – saving energy and providing a stable environment for cooling systems. With the onslaught of Global Warming, regular 40°C summers are forecast soon. ModuSec may allow a lower specification AC system and provide significant savings in running costs as well as lowering the carbon footprint of your server room / data centre.
The figures below show the U value comparison of pyro-foam with traditional partition materials:
|Single glazed window||5.7|
|Double glazed window||2.8|
|Solid brick / block wall||2.5|
|Brick / block cavity wall with insulation between||0.5|
|100mm mineral wall core panel||0.38|
|Stud Partition with mineral wool infill||0.35|
|100mm ModuSec panel with Pyrofoam core||0.18|
i.e. the ModuSec panel has more than double the energy efficiency of mineral wool panels of the same thickness.
