The air­proof­ing lay­er pro­tects the in­su­la­tion from mois­ture and con­dens­a­tion from the in­side, en­sures that the in­su­la­tion works ef­fect­ively and provides a healthy in­door liv­ing en­vir­on­ment.

The thermal insulation separates the indoor from the outdoor climate. The temperature difference between the two climates attempts to become equalised through the flow of air. This means in winter the warm air from the building transfers through the structural elements to the outside. The airproofing layer prevents this air flow, the so-called convection, and therefore the loss of hot air to the outside.
