Client: Stevenage Homes
Type of works: supply of TLX Gold
Stevenage Homes is responsible for the management and maintenance of 8,000 local council properties.
The company was looking for a product to help deliver insulation improvements to many of its managed homes as part of its social housing renovation work.
TLX Gold can help where regulation requires roof repairs above 25% of an area to upgrade the thermal performance to current standards, subject to the 15-year payback rule. TLX Gold was specified as it overcomes the technical and structural problems of raising a roof line or lowering a ceiling. Here the product delivered an improved thermal performance - 0.29 U-value - for homes with loft rooms.
By installing the products externally:
- the contractors dont require access to the loft space
- residents incurred fewer disturbances
- the interior décor of the loft room is maintained.
Kevin Howard, project leader at Stevenage Homes said: "TLX Gold has provided a solution to our need to upgrade insulation. Not only does it deliver an easy insulation fix but it means we dont have to alter the roof line of our homes. Although we are early into the work we believe that it will deliver a quick and simple solution and help bring long lasting benefits to our tenants.
