Living Well with Smart Wall Protection

Interior Design & Decor

Asia’s unforgiving weather and soaring temperatures brought on by global warming can wreak havoc on your well-being even when you’re home if your house is not carefully safeguarded. Thankfully, there’s already a solution (no, we’re not talking about closing the windows and turning on the air-conditioning). We speak to Bioclimatic Solutions to find out how it’s empowering the walls of your home to be the smartest line of defence against the elements.

1. The BES is a multi-functional protective wall coating

Certified by the Singapore Green Building Council, Bioclimatic materials are made primarily from reclaimed glass. Using a patented technique, the glass is grounded into fine granules, which are then sintered to form expanded granules. The resulting material doesn’t contain any harmful substances. Because it’s made of expanded glass, the material doesn’t biodegrade like other materials with organic ingredients. This makes it an incredibly versatile material, which – unlike other coatings – does more than just keep your walls flat.  

 

2. It keeps your home cool (25 times more thermal resistant than concrete & bricks)

Concrete and bricks are dense materials prone to storing heat. During the day, they absorb heat and transfer it inwards, warming your house. The expanded glass granules in the BES create a less compact material, which allows air to dissipate as soon as it touches the BES, eliminating any chance of heat transfer in the process. Applied to your interiors, the BES doesn’t just repel heat that’s transferred indoors – it keeps the internal cool air in circulation. The BES is also recommended for the ceilings of top-floor flats as it guards against overheating from the sunlight that's directly overhead.

 

Benefits of a Cooler Home

A healthier family

 

A warm environment can cause dizziness, nausea, heat cramps and heatstroke, especially in young children and the elderly. It can also disturb sleep, leading to fatigue and loss of concentration. At worst, it aggravates skin problems such as rashes and eczema.

More money to spend on the stuff that matters

 

With less heat in the house, you don’t have to rely as much on air-conditioning. Even when your air-conditioner is turned on, it doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your house cool, resulting in cost savings on today’s rising energy bills. Think of it as a rebate on the life insurance you just bought for your family.

Smaller carbon footprint

 

By reducing your usage of air-conditioning, you’re contributing less to global warming. Global warming makes the world hotter, which forces people to consume more air-conditioning. So a big thanks to you for breaking this vicious cycle!

No more perspiring after showering

 

Have you ever stepped out of the shower only to immediately perspire? We feel you. A cooler environment means your shower no longer has to be in vain.

Feel more energised

 

According to studies, the human body functions optimally from 22 to 25 degrees Celsius. When the environment becomes any warmer, the body starts burning energy to get rid of the excess heat. This means that you’re likely to feel more lethargic in a warm environment.

Better wood furniture

 

Wood furniture is delicate, reacting easily to heat and even moisture. A cooler home helps to keep your antiques and vintage pieces in tip-top condition and preserve their value. Reduced usage of air-conditioning also means there’re fewer chances of condensation, which can affect wood furniture.

Higher resale value for your flat

 

The BES doesn’t just last a really long time – it keeps your walls in pristine condition. So when a buyer takes over a flat, he or she won’t need to invest as much in maintenance and repairs. This allows your flat to fetch a stellar price in the resale market. 


 

3. It protects your walls from cracks

image for Living Well with Smart Wall Protection

 

Building materials such as concrete and bricks are water-absorbent. This is bad news in Singapore’s tropical climate, which is punctuated by daily rainfall and high relative humidity. By the time construction is completed, the materials would have already accumulated a lot of moisture. If the materials are layered before being allowed to dry, water can become trapped in between due to an air sealant in coatings that prevents the moisture from escaping. 

 

Being a great conductor of heat, the trapped water increases heat transfer in the building, causing cracks and other issues in the long run. The BES is a partially permeable, or 'breathable', but still water-repellent material, allowing moisture to diffuse as vapour while blocking the entry of water. In time, the accumulated moisture fully evaporates, leaving the walls dry and armed with maximum thermal resistance.
