With Loft converters worried about the rising cost of foam board and the new regs we were asked by one of the countries leading Loft Converters to work out savings using SuperFOIL solutions.

On a comparison of materials SuperFOIL solutions are the most competitive every time. For the new regs those savings increase by up to 200%. When you also include the savings from less waste, speed of install, savings on manpower, reduced storage and transport and not forgetting the airtightness, vapour barrier and radiant barrier you can see why modern SuperFOIL solutions are the way to tackle the future.

SFips Timber Frame Panel Productionhttp://www.superfoil.co.uk/news/sfips-timber-frame-panel-production/ http://www.superfoil.co.uk/news/sfips-timber-frame-panel-production/#comments Tue, 01 Apr 2014 11:53:58 +0000 will http://www.superfoil.co.uk/?p=3842

Our camera caught the action during production of the first SFips panels at a leading timber frame supplier. SFips are the insulation industries latest development to meet the new 2014 regulations coming in this month.

SFips, is short for Superfoil Insulated Panel System, SFips meet the new 2014 thermal performance standards by factory fitting 1 single layer of the worlds highest performance multifoil insulation.

The benefit of SFips timber frame panels are that the construction is factory controlled, giving a high precision, high performance timber frame that can be significantly slimmer than the majority of glass wool or foam board panels.

SFips Timber Frame Panel Production

Our camera caught the action during production of the first SFips panels at a leading timber frame supplier. SFips are the insulation industries latest development to meet the new 2014 regulations coming in this month.

SFips, is short for Superfoil Insulated Panel System, SFips meet the new 2014 thermal performance standards by factory fitting 1 single layer of the worlds highest performance multifoil insulation.

The benefit of SFips timber frame panels are that the construction is factory controlled, giving a high precision, high performance timber frame that can be significantly slimmer than the majority of glass wool or foam board panels.

Walls thickness has grown a lot as thermal performance regulations have become tougher, with walls often in excess of 350mm thick. Thinner walls give home owners more floor space for the same price, or allow better development of a site as less site area has to devoted to the walls. In a tight site with multiple dwellings the wall savings can even result in space for extra rooms or even an entire dwelling.

SFips are economical on materials as well as manpower, with less timber, less waste, less cutting and less storage. SFips factory based production is not affected by the weather. Factory made SFips guarantee efficiency in every aspect.

SFips Timber frame panels are transported to site already insulated, as well as water and air tight complete with a radiant barrier, reducing construction time even further. SFips provide a ready made service cavity and all services are contained with in the warm envelope which not only protects them from the cold but ensure there are no penetrations that can affect air tightness and reduce thermal performance.

To inquire about SFips for your project contact Terry.williams@superfoil.co.uk

Cold weather, is it a sticky issue for you?http://www.superfoil.co.uk/news/cold-weather-sticky-issue/ http://www.superfoil.co.uk/news/cold-weather-sticky-issue/#comments Tue, 25 Mar 2014 10:44:50 +0000 will http://www.superfoil.co.uk/?p=3823

Superfoil has both standard tape and a high performance cold weather tape, using tape on insulation reduces the passage of air and improves efficiency. It's always recommended that you "seal" when insulating to reduce or eliminate any passage of air.

Superfoil cold weather tape is a higher performance tape and makes the task easy and efficient.

Cold Weather Tape

Superfoil has both standard tape and a high performance cold weather tape, using tape on insulation reduces the passage of air and improves efficiency. It’s always recommended that you “seal” when insulating to reduce or eliminate any passage of air.

Superfoil cold weather tape is a higher performance tape and makes the task easy and efficient. A customer called Vincent had the following to say:

This tape is infinitely better than the previous foil. Sticks just as well, but is much easier to apply and use. Many thanks

Ask for Superfoil Cold Weather tape when specifying, it’s 100mm wide by 40m long.

Barn Conversion: SF40 leads the wayhttp://www.superfoil.co.uk/news/barn-conversion-sf40-leads-way/ http://www.superfoil.co.uk/news/barn-conversion-sf40-leads-way/#comments Mon, 24 Mar 2014 11:38:56 +0000 will http://www.superfoil.co.uk/?p=3799

Ensuring a good performance on a barn conversion is a detail that needs a lot of attention. Barn converter Andrew saw the benefits of SF40, including the flexibility, high performance and easy to achieve air tightness, without the drawbacks of thermal bridging when using board between timbers (even in an existing building that can have its own peculiarities of construction).

SF40 in 2 layers provides solutions to around the U0.13 level of efficiency.

Scotland Proactive Performance with SF40

SuperFOIL were asked to find a thermally efficient and space economical solution for cold walls in a typical Scottish building. The solution was SF40, this gives a high performance simple single layer solution, improving the thermal insulation of a wall to a performance higher than current regulation requirements.

Aberdeenshire Council Infrastructure Services approved SF40 and the design detail solution “we accept SuperFOIL insulation for use within the wall construction”. Byron Lawson business development at SuperFOIL who liaised with Aberdeenshire Council said “Aberdeenshire have approved the use of SF40″ he went on to say, “SF40 gives a cost effective solution in a single layer that exceeds the current building regulation requirements, its perfect for high performance in new build or retrofit and its performance exceeds other manufacturers products”.
