Vyra, India – Rigid polyurethane insulation materials have helped schoolchildren to have their lunches in a weather-proof building.
The school in rural Gujarat needed a multipurpose dining hall for 80 of the girls at school to have their meals in. The hall covers 800 sq ft (74 m2). Before it was built, the girls had to eat their lunches in the open. This was unpleasantly hot in the summer, and difficult during monsoons.
The roof of the dining room consists of 73mm panels with steel sheets, while the walls are 100mm PU and paper honeycomb panels. They have Bison Board facings.
