Available At Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire Alumaflex Thermal Insulation

85% of housing built before 1965 has no thermal insulation and only about 50% of dwellings have any form of thermal insulation so there is plenty of scope for reducing emissions and energy consumption. In the UK current thermal transmittance targets are set out in the 2010 Building Regulations and they continue to drive down target U-Values in new- build and refur­bis­hment.

Criteria for specifying Alumaflex thermal insulation.

  • Performance in use and longevity – full product certification
  • Buildability and the reassurance that on-site work will meet the required thermal design standards.
  • Will the insulation have minimal impact on building design and capital cost.

Alumaflex Thermal insulation is specified to control three components of heat transmittance through the building fabric:

  • Conduction of heat through building fabric.
  • Convection via air movement.
  • Radiant transmission.

Impact on building design

  • The insulation material and effect on floors and external wall thickness are minimal.
  • Multi-Foil Insulation provides the opportunity to incorporate the insulation into other aspects of building function; for example, creating thermal benefits in limited spaces eg. the use of a roof void as a habitable space.
  • Alumaflex provides significant thermal benefit with a low level of capital cost.

Performance in use and longevity: BBA certification

  • Alumaflex provides Stability and meets the expected effective life performance.
  • All U-values are achieved in practice using Building Regulations / BRE guidance.
  • Alumaflex has undergone stringent ageing tests carried out by the BBA which is the basis of calculations in the design performance.
  • Alumaflex is not vulnerable to factors affecting performance including moisture and vermin attack.
