Thermo Bead is a high density polystyrene bonded bead solution to totally insulate a cavity wall constructed building. The expanded polystyrene bead is durable and will last the lifetime of the property. It will not settle or crack and will greatly improve the thermal efficiency of your home. Thermo Bead will meet the new building regulation Part L certificate no: 08/0320

Existing homes

Whether you are insulating an empty cavity or upgrading existing board insulation in the cavity, the bonded bead will significantly retain the hear generated in your home to last longer. In most cases the house is drilled from the outside at ceiling height on all levels and also under each window. The holes are 20mm in diameter (1 Inch) and are refilled with white sand and cement to match as closely as possible the original finish of the house. In homes where there is brick facing on the outer leaf the mortar joints are drilled to reduce the possibility of damage to the brick or drilled from the inside where appropriate.

New Build

Air Tightness

Air tightness is a fundamental application required in a new build construction that will significantly reduce the annual heating costs of a home. Applied correctly the dramatic reduction in air infiltration into the building envelope allows the insulation to retain the core temperature of the building for longer. Air tightness is very effective in decreasing air leakage that attacks the homes temperature continuously. Some of advantages installing an air tightness seal include; Reduce the possibility of mould growth. Reduce draughts and in turn increase the room temperature. Improve heat retention when the heat is off. Create a cosier environment to live in. Potential problems areas of the building that need addressing include; Electrical installations-Sockets Etc-always a avenue for air penetration. Sills,Lintels,Reveals- One of the biggest problems areas. Steel beams entering the cavity wall Boiler vents breaching the cavity wall Around external door frames A side extension roof space attached to the main construction. In summary , there are numerous areas of risk in repelling air infiltration into any home or building. Air leakage may cause roof damage, warm air filtrating through the building can create moist air that creates an environment for condensation to linger and mould and fungi spores to develop. Good workmanship from all the trades is extremely important in complementing the air tightness installation. All involved must take an active part in the reduction of issues for the penetration of the outer seal been broken or damaged in any way Complementing air tightness objective is a efficient ventilation system. Fresh warm air sent to all rooms, and cold stale air extracted on a continuous basis. This will allow the home to be cosier and more comfortable to live in.
