Cold insulation should be considered, where operating temperatures are below ambient and where protection is required against heat gain, condensation or freezing.In designing an insulation system where formulae and surface coefficients are used they should be to an appropriate international standard, for example, BS 5422 is recommended. In selection of material density, it should be considered whether insulation requires being load bearing or not.

For whatever purpose cold insulation is required, the insulation system is only as good as its vapour barrier and the care with which it is installed.
