Wood is an incredible material with great potential as thermal mass. In fact, it boasts a heat capacity per volume that is comparable to bricks. However, there is a challenge when it comes to effectively utilizing wood for this purpose: its low heat conductivity. Despite this drawback, wood serves as an excellent insulation material.
Fortunately, the Finshield wall addresses this issue by incorporating small channels that facilitate the circulation of air. This clever solution overcomes the limitations of wood’s low heat conductivity, allowing it to be used effectively as a thermal mass material.
