The building’s indoor climate class

The building’s indoor climate class is determined based on the vapour pressure inside the building; this pressure is influenced in particular by the moisture production inside the building. There are four indoor climate classes.

It is recommended to ALWAYS use vapour barriers for indoor climate class III or IV.
For vapour barriers of class III or lower, products from the IKO base range are suitable. Consult your IKO specialist!
