Basalt insulation finds its way to Chelyabinsk house construction

A development company from Chelyabinsk named Legion uses basalt insulation for cast-in-place concrete multistory frame construction. The three-layer exterior wall construction with thermal insulation based on basalt fiber makes it possible to build cast-in-place walls avoiding thermal bypass.

Necessary rock studies of the gabbro and andesite basalt groups for the suitability as the raw material base for the production of continuous basalt fiber (CBF). A unique technique including laboratory melting and pilot-industrial melting at the high-tech equipment.

Using energy-saving technology means big savings for the occupants during cold seasons. According to Aleksandr Dorokhin, the Marketing Director of Legion, today’s customer takes into consideration not only the infrastructure and provision of housing amenities but also the construction technology used by the developers.

From this aspect, cast-in-place concrete frame construction using basalt-based thermal insulation, among other things, provides the advantages of environmentally friendly material. Cast-in-place concrete frame buildings include all the residential complexes constructed by Legion in Chelyabinsk.
