Type of works: supply of weber.therm XM and weber.therm FT.
The Lighthouse sits directly over the Blackwell tunnel, so the structural weight of the development was a primary consideration; it had to be kept ot a minimum and stay within NHBC insurance specifications. To fulfill these requirements, the high performance external wall insulation system, weber-therm XM, was specified in conjunction with a weber.plast TF finish.
Through this choice of system, Weber were able to satisfy the NHBC requirement of the maintenance of a minium 15mm water defence cavity between external insulation and lightweight metal framking through the use of components from weber.therm FT.
weber.therm FT has been specifically designed for use with weber.therm XM to provide robust detailing, weather seasling and to satisfy NHBC requirements with single-skin or lightweight steel frame construction.
