Knauf Insulation’s Supafil Party Wall insulation has successfully been shortlisted in the Housebuilder Product Awards 2015: Best Brand New Product category.
Supafil Party Wall is a full fill insulation solution for separating party cavity walls that is injected into new and existing buildings, with many benefits for the housebuilder and the future home-owner. It is an unbonded, non-combustible glass mineral wool insulation and as such, is a proven solution that effectively eliminates the air movement that causes party wall bypass as it ensures that insulation is in intimate contact with both leaves of the wall.
Throughout the award entry, Knauf Insulation demonstrated to the judges that this product enabled a quick and simplified installation process for housebuilders. The company also proved that due to its new blue colouration, Supafil Party Wall makes it easier for housebuilders to identify if they have the correct insulation solution installed in the right application - also helping to promote compliance with Robust Details.
Supafil Party Wall makes it easier to meet with both Part E and L of the Building Regulations and the NHBC building standards, whilst improving the thermal and acoustic performance of a property. As Supafil Party Wall is a registered construction with Robust Details, housebuilders do not need to undertake pre-completion acoustic testing thus reducing construction time.
Furthermore, when it is used in conjunction with a effective edge sealing – fully filling the cavity – the solution allows a zero effective U-value to be used within SAP calculations for new dwellings.
Knauf Insulation has also recently released Environmental Performance Declarations for the Supafil range– making the company the first insulation manufacturer in the UK to obtain them in its product sector.
On Thursday 25th June, all winners will be announced at the gala lunch at Edgbaston Stadium - good luck to all those who have been shortlisted!
