Ecological Building Systems UK Ltd are looking forward to hosting three workshops as part of Cumbria Green Build Festival held from the 19th – 25th September 2016. A whole host of events is planned around Cumbria, organised by CAFS – Cumbria Action for Sustainability
We've been stocking Thermo-Jute 100 insulation here in Cumbria for some time now. We've always loved its up-cycled credentials coupled with its performance values. But what has Thermo-Jute got to do with chocolate? Well read all about it here, it's a great story!
Masonry construction is still the most common method of building in Ireland & the UK. It is widely accepted that to attain optimum levels of airtightness in masonry construction the internal block must be plastered continuously with a suitable plaster layer. In order to limit air leakage, it is critical that the plaster on the inside of external walls is continuous and bonds to adjacent building elements continuously without gaps or cracks occurring.
One of the most significant factors required to maximize the energy efficiency of a roof, particularly when insulation follows the pitch of a roof, is to ensure that it is sealed both airtightly internally with a suitable vapour control layer such as INTELLO PLUS and wind tightly externally with a suitable diffusion open membrane such as SOLITEX PLUS CONNECT.
The Wellhöfer 4D attic hatch not only features a certified airtight and pre insulated attic door, but also features an independent airtightness sealing system which seals the hatch frame to the surrounding timber joists, noggins or the adjacent airtightness and vapour control layer. The hatch door is not only 3rd party certified airtight door, but the additional hatch frame sealing system has also received 3rd party airtightness certification
What Products Make Your First Team?
pro clima airtightness products have such a range of names ranging from SOLIDO to INTELLO, that people often wonder where they come from? In fact a builder once inquired if SOLIDO was named after an Italian striker! So we’ve decided to put together a pro clima team for the EURO’s! Here is our starting 11. We have a prize for the best suggested improvements.
