Dynamic Insulation Solid Wall Insulation systems are designed for conventional domestic and commercial construction, particularly as a retrofit measure for "solid wall, hard-to-treat” buildings, coupling the ventilation system to the insulation to produce U-values of c.0.15W/m2.K using 100mm EPS insulation.
Two systems have been developed:
The combination of ventilation and insulation results in the following benefits over a conventional solid wall insulation:
Dynamic External Insulation products are OFGEM recognised for current government utility subsidy schemes such as CERT and CESP.
The existing UK housing stock is responsible for 27% of total UK CO2 emissions. In addition, approx. 25% of UK households are defined as Fuel Poor. The eradication of fuel poverty and the dramatic reduction of UK CO2 emissions are both core UK Government objectives with legislation already in place driving change. Furthermore, there is a growing awareness that significant health problems are caused by poor indoor air quality in existing dwellings.
The current Supplier Obligation (CERT/CESP and ECO from 2012) mandates the Utility Companies to reduce CO2 emissions arising from the sale of energy to the residential sector. This is achieved through the application of energy saving technology to existing dwellings. The subsidy transferred from the Utility Company to the Householder or Housing provider is based on the CO2 saving potential of the technology. Furthermore, this legislation adds a premium to energy saving measures targeting Fuel Poor households to substantially reduce energy bills and shelter these households from the effect of rising utility bills.
From 2012, the Supplier Obligation through the ECO will concentrate on deploying energy & carbon savings measures targeted at the circa 8,000,000 “hard to treat” solid wall dwellings in the UK stock. The market for Solid Wall insulation systems is set for rapid growth as a result.
