Actis Hybrid offers benefits for timber pods

Actis Hybrid offers benefits for timber pods

A specialist building component manufacturer based in North Lincolnshire is so impressed by the thermal efficiency, speed and ease of installation of the Actis Hybrid range it plans to use the full system on its entire new range of modular timber pods.

Fair Share Group Ltd, trading as Highseal Manufacturing Company, has been making PVC doors, windows and conservatories since 2008. With more than 30 years’ experience in the industry and a change in market trends towards modular buildings, they have diversified and launched a new brand, Cre8a, to fulfil the growing demand for living, working and relaxation spaces in gardens.

Cre8a Pods can be used as independent living zones for grown up children, home offices, B and B chalets, yoga studios, spas, gyms, music rooms, art and craft workshops or, of course, meditative hideaways and luxury garden rooms. It also plans to use the entire Actis Hybrid system on the second phase of its designs – Cre8a house extensions.

The roof and walls of the pods will be insulated with the entire Actis Hybrid system, ensuring the pods stay cool in summer and warm during winter. Using 125mm honeycomb insulation Hybris and vapour control layer HControl Hybrid in the roof and 50mm Hybris, breather membrane BoostR Hybrid and HControl Hybrid in the walls, the pods will enjoy an impressive U-value of 0.18 in the roof and 0.19 in the walls – higher than the specification required under current building regulations.

Cre8a director Neil Donaldson said : "When researching the design for the new pods we looked at a variety of insulation options before settling on Actis Hybrid. It’s CE marked, NHBC approved and has LABC and LABSS registered details. We chose it not only for its impressive thermal efficiency, but also for the ease, cleanliness and the speed with which it can be installed".
