This paper presents the results of experimental tests of a wall barrier containing a layer with the addition of phase-change material. The study was performed in a climatic chamber for a light frame wall in two versions: with inner lining made of plaster-cardboard panel and of panel containing PCM. Temperature measurements were made on the surface of panels for non- stationary conditions in a climatic chamber. Research stand was prepared, in which heating of coat layers was effecting from an increase of the room’s air temperature rather than from direct heating of the layers. The influence of the PCM was analyzed for faster and slower pace of air heating.
