  • Maximising Thermal Performance: Insulation ensuring good U-values while maximising floor area
  • Minimising Thermal (Cold) Bridging: Caused by a

     break in the continuity of the insulation.


  • Minimising Thermal Bypass: Reducing movement of unheated air within cavity party walls, roof spaces, underfloor walls.
