Timber Frame for Bespoke Needs

Our Timber Frame Department are always looking to progress, evolve and improve their systems – and often this means providing something very much bespoke to the needs of a customer’s development. Here’s an example:

So when a client had a specific brief of no PIR insulation in the walls whilst still aiming for impressive performance we were more than happy to explore the options.

This latest trial involves exploring the practicalities of a widely used I-Joist stud configuration and a less common hybrid insulation system comprising of a foil faced honeycomb insulation, intelligent cavities and an additional insulated foil faced external membrane.

By creating thermal cavities this system hopes to achieve U-values as low as 0.13W/m2K whilst providing a solid panel structure and convenient open service void to the customer.

Head of Timber Frame, Tim Griffiths is delighted with the outcome “The team explored a number of possibilities to meet the customer’s requirements, our team is highly skilled in providing solutions that fit with the brief.  This is just one of a number projects of ‘outside the box’ ways of thinking.”
