In order to help house builders design energy efficient homes, Knauf Insulation has created a new Housing Guide for Ireland.
The guide will help those designing houses to select the optimum insulation solution in accordance to either the Northern or the Republic of Ireland’s Building Regulations.
With an array of whole house solutions available, Knauf Insulation recommends the most suitable solution for a variety of applications throughout the guide – from roofs, walls, and floors.
Indeed, all solutions explained within the guide meet the following regulations for Northern Ireland: Technical Booklet F1 (Conservation of fuel and power in dwellings and Technical Booklet G (Resistance to the passage of sound).
The solutions also meet Technical Guidance Document L (Conservation of fuel and energy in dwellings) and Technical Guidance Document E (Sound) for the Republic of Ireland.
Stephen Smith, Knauf Insulation Market Development Manager, said: “Improving the energy efficiency of homes in Ireland will not only allow future home owners or tenants to live comfortably, but it will also help to ensure that their energy bills are low – and stay low.
“As such, our new Housing Guide for Ireland will help house builders to ensure that properties throughout Ireland are adequately insulated to enable this.
“Our new Earthwool® OmniFit range is also featured as a recommended solution within the new guide. Following extensive research with builders, contractors and insulation specialists, our new fitter friendly range has been designed for multiple applications and provides outstanding thermal, acoustic, and fire performance across three products: Earthwool OmniFit Slab, OmniFit Roll, and OmniFit Stud.”
In addition to the new guide, Knauf Insulation has a team of representatives based in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, which will allow house builders to gain further support if necessary.
Knauf Insulation’s Technical Support Team is also on hand to offer advice and specialist guidance.
