The first developer to benefit from the NEW
cavity wall insulation product with 20 per cent improved thermal
performance is Summerfield Homes for its latest development in
Summerfield Homes, based in Taunton, Somerset, specified 600m2 of NEW Jablo Fulfill by Vencel Resil, as they were looking for an insulation product that was suitable for use with random stone and that guaranteed performance in line with current Building Regulations requirements.
Twenty three homes on ‘The Barrows’ development in Cheddar will have Jablo Fulfill as cavity wall insulation that will deliver improved thermal performance and greater energy efficiency for homeowners.
Richard Nicol, Sales Director for Summerfield Homes, explains: “These houses are built from a combination of mixed stone and render and we needed a cavity wall material that gave us the required performance without the need for a ‘third’ wall. Jablo Fulfill was perfect for the job and was really easy to install because of its tongued and grooved design. We are delighted with the results.”
Neil Conway, General Sales Manager for Vencel Resil, said: “This product was introduced as it guarantees a lower U-value for a building and is suitable for most wall constructions.
“The product offers huge opportunities to enable housebuilders to meet their building regulations requirements without needing to change their wall thicknesses or building practices.”
Jablo fulfill is a moulded expanded polystyrene board with fluted face and tongued and grooved edge, which fully interlocks to provide a robust fit on all four sides. The product achieves a Lambda value of 0.030 W/mK, which offers building designers a very efficient way to meet the regulations, whilst retaining an open cavity wall construction. Available in two standard thicknesses: 75mm and 100mm to suit individual requirements, Jablo fulfil is instantly recognisable by its grey and orange speckled colouration.
The sophisticated design of the board means the outer flutes direct moisture down the exterior face of the insulation, ensuring that damp does not become a problem. The tongue and groove jointing also means that moisture cannot pass between the edges of panels onto the internal wall.
With the increasing pressures to create buildings that meet thermal performance and sustainability requirements, Jablo fulfill is the perfect choice for housebuilders looking for simple and effective way to meet Building Regulations.
Jablo fulfill is part of a complete range of energy efficient solutions developed for the construction industry by Vencel Resil. Expanded polystyrene is 100 percent recyclable, as well as HCFC-free and non-toxic.
