Marley has unveiled Rainscreen Cladding insulation solutions, a comprehensive new guide that highlights the benefits of fibre-cement cladding as an overclad and thermal insulation solution.
The 20 page brochure provides invaluable information to specifiers looking to gain the benefits of a rear ventilated cladding solution on both existing and new-build projects.
The brochure provides details of Marleys comprehensive cladding range including; Natura Pro, Natura Plus, Textura, Pictura, Operal, Cedral Weatherboard and a selection of fixing systems, and how these products have already been used in Commercial, Housing, Education and Healthcare applications.
The new Rainscreen Cladding insulation solutions guide also highlights how fibre-cement overcladding offers unique levels of thermal, acoustic and weather-resisting performance by devoting a section to thermal design details for upgrading existing structures and overcladding. This includes illustrations of standard building constructions, such as an existing brick work building and the typical U-value improvement when using rainscreen cladding.
For specifiers looking to source products with low embodied energy, the new brochure provides a comparison of the embodied energy of various different cladding and insulation materials. Fibre-cement cladding has one of the lowest levels of embodied energy of any cladding material, allowing building designers to achieve a higher BREEAM rating.
Marley's fibre-cement rainscreen cladding solutions can also achieve an A+ rating as defined in the BRE Green Guide to Specification* and help compliance with the Building Regulations and the Code for Sustainable Homes.
