As to the windows, those existing might be replaced with double glazing in a metal frame having a thermal barrier. 5 Thus, the conduction loss, a i r to air, is 2 4 0 x 2 2 - 5 . 57 W / m 2 K .

Flat and sloping roofs As has been noted previously, attack upon the energy loss through factory roofs was the target of early legislation. 7. Floors It has been noted earlier that the heat loss from a solid floor on earth will occur largely around the perimeter. 8(a), will be adequate. For a timber floor suspended above an enclosed but ventilated air space, insulation is best applied not too far below the actual flooring. 8(b). 8(c). Some means of access to any piping or wiring below the insulation must not be forgotten.

30 The building in winter most commonly used as infill material or as an inner skin protected from the weather. When used with flat roofs, insulants are prone to absorb condensation and hence a vapour seal or some means of venting is required: recent building methods use a form of construction known as the inverted or 'upside down' roof in which the insulating membrane is placed on top of the structure below the water-proofng layer. Nevertheless, it is frequently possible, by the selection of the right materials and techniques, to achieve a high degree of insulation for little or no overall cost.
