How to Eliminate Heat Loss from Glazed Loggias by Applying Nano Coat System

Loggias are quite common in housing estates. It is important to realize that the loggias are the true thermal bridges. A large portion of the expensively insulated heat escapes in these places. The solution is to glaze the loggia and, combined with other building elements, this will help save energy.

If you have a glazed loggia and it still feels cold, apply the Nano Coat System active material to the walls.

The Nano Coat System material was specially developed by the Helske company based on the principle of nanotechnologies. It creates a thermal reflective layer on the walls which reflects thermal radiation back to the loggia. This reduces the required heating time. At the same time, the Nano Coat System is an efficient form of anti-mould prevention. It is designed to permeate moisture, reducing the risk of the formation of moulds and the development of allergies. The material is warm to the touch and retains its high brightness. In this way, you can create a lasting ideal microclimate in the loggia quite simply and at no great expense.

Which Places Should the Material be Applied to in the Loggia?

Apply the Nano Coat System to all the walls to reflect the heat back to the room and prevent its escape through the walls. Apply it also to the reveals around the glazed part and the entrances to the balcony because these are the places where heat escapes and water vapours condense, which can be prevented by the Nano Coat System. Apply it also to all the circumferential walls (façade, external walls) or to the places where thermal bridges are present. One of the advantages of the system is that it can be applied to non-absorbent surfaces as well, such as wall tiles, floor tiles, marble, glass etc. In this way, you can apply it even to the inaccessible places and corners of the room, often affected by moulds.

Nano Coat System consists of: 

Nano PT - represents deep penetration that stabilizes the foundations. It is used for absorbent cohesive surfaces and is applied with a brush or roller.

Nano AM - it is used on all other surfaces where we can not use Nano PT. Thus, non-absorbent cohesive surfaces such as glass, iron and others. Apply with a brush or roller.

Nano TC - it is used to repair holes, cracks and small irregularities of size up to 3-4mm.

Nano Coat Homethe final layer of mass applied by a stainless comb trowel to a pre-treated, smooth surface of about 2 mm thick. After drying, grind the surface with sandpaper.

Apply in the following order: 

 1. Nano PT or Nano AM,

2. Nano TC, if necessary to repair the surface,

3. final layer Nano Coat Home.
