Today's residential properties demand reliable, high thermal performance building envelopes that provide energy-efficiency, prevent heat loss, eliminate thermal bridging, and provide safety and comfort over their operating lifetime. These performance criteria are key factors in minimising energy running costs, whilst maximising property value for owners.
With the UK construction industry now targeted to produce new-build dwellings with a 30% decrease in carbon emissions, along with improved methods for energy consumption, utilising a fabric first approach for residential housing is now more important than ever. Simply put, this focuses on maximising the performance of the building's external envelope. This can be achieved by optimising the thermal performance of residential dwellings through insulative technology.
Designing with Nudura solid wall insulated technology (ICF) allows you to offer your customer an exceptional product that offers maximum benefits over traditional building methods. Our forms consist of two panels of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) that are connected with our patented web system, which is made of 100% recycled material. Nudura forms are stacked, steel reinforced and filled with concrete - which completes the building envelope of your dwelling. ICF structures offer superior performance when it comes to thermal bridging, resulting in even temperatures throughout the structure which in turn reduces draughts and cold spots, ensuring occupants are comfortable no matter what the outdoor temperature is.
Here at Nudura, we make the design process as easy and efficient as possible, offering a variety of design resource tools for our ICF system. The ICF Product line from Nudura meets the high demands for the residential sector, available in a variety of sizes designed to accommodate all types of building requirements.
