THERMOMASS concrete wall insulation, available from Composite Global Solutions , was recently installed in the concrete panels of Ararat Prison in central west Victoria.

THERMOMASS has had significant success in this sector as constant temperatures play a major role in regulating inmate behaviour. Additionally, as a highly efficient insulation barrier that also shortens the building program, THERMOMASS concrete wall insulation is now the leading building system for new prisons constructed in Australia in the last 5 years.

The high amount of the thermal mass and superior information in a THERMOMASS structure make for highly efficient heating and cooling by storing heat energy in the walls and floors. This energy moves in and out of the wall as the ambient temperature fluctuates, passively regulating the temperature on the inside.
