The Balcony in Rooms: The Source of Moisture and Heat Loss

In the summer months, the balcony is wonderful for ventilation and airflow into the room. However, in autumn and winter, it can cause increased humidity in the room. Moreover, heat may escape into the exterior through the reveals of the balcony door. It will take longer to heat up the room and unpleasant air may develop in the room.

Problems with heat loss and moisture around the balcony can be prevented with the Nano Coat System, an active building material.

This special mixture, developed with state- of-the-art nanotechnology, helps maintain stable temperature in the room. The material creates a thermal reflective layer which reflects thermal radiation back to the room while removing excessive moisture. It actively regulates the air and distributes it all over the room. Also, it eliminates the cold spots on the walls. Thanks to these features, it reduces heating time and saves energy.



Which Places Should the Material be Applied to?

Apply the Nano Coat System to the reveals around the balcony door because that is the place where heat escapes and water vapour condenses. Apply it also to the wall on which the entrance of the balcony is.


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.
