Social housing provider in Cornwall

Social housing provider in Cornwall

Specifier: Advanced Panel Systems
Type of works: manufacture and supply of TLX Silver

One of the UK’s leading off site timber frame manufacturers, Advanced Panel Systems (UK) Ltd of Cornwall, chose TLX Silver to help deliver a cost effective housing construction with low environmental impact. The product was specified by APS to be used on a Project for a Social Housing provider in Newquay, Cornwall.

TLX Silver already an established product as a performance enhancing solution for roofs when used with rigid board and glass wool. In walls it can improve the U-value of a timber frame wall from 0.21 to 0.18W/m2.K whilst retaining a 140mm stud depth.

In this instance Web Dynamics developed bespoke sizes specifically for the project to improve energy efficiency and reduce waste:
• Each roll was supplied in special 3.2m widths for factory fixing – enabling one pass over the production line, eliminating the need to overlap material, taping and bulge at overlap maintaining a clear cavity in service void
• The product was also supplied with 400mm top and bottom flanges to improve air tightness

Wendy Berry, Managing Director of Advanced Panel Systems commented:” Web Dynamics has provided us with a bespoke solution for our needs. TLX Silver gives us thermal efficiency and air tightness which are key considerations as we move towards meeting the requirements of the Code for Sustainable Homes.”
