We are now able to offer our customers a complete range of thicknesses (20-100mm) of Polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam to suit any application and volume requirements. FOAMtech PIR boards are of particular benefit where insurance companies require that the insulation within a curtain walling system achieves a higher fire performance. Our product has been tested at Warringtonfire and achieved a Class 1 Surface Spread of Flame (BS 476: Part 7: 1997). Another advantage in using FOAMtech PIR is that clients can avoid the handling and weight problems associated with using fibrous insulation products.
FOAMtech is the official sales partner of BASF in the UK for sales of its Styrodur® C range of insulation products.
Styrodur® C conforms to building standards all over Europe and fulfills the demands of different climatic conditions. Styrodur® C is environmentally friendly: it is free of ozone-depleting CFC, HCFC and HFC and achieves a Global Warming Potential (GWP) value of one.
Styrodur® C insulation is therefore not only green in appearance but in its credentials and when used in the construction of new homes will ensure that the required credit is achieved as per the Code of Sustainable homes which in April 2007 replaced Ecohomes for the assessment of new housing in England.
The Code for Sustainable homes provides a comprehensive measure of the sustainability of new homes, ensuring that sustainable homes deliver real improvements in key areas such as carbon dixide emissions and water use. The Government's ambition for the Code is that it becomes the single national standard for the design and construction of sustainable homes, and that it drives improvements in home building practice.
