Val-U-Therm combines class-leading performance in a cost-effective package and will deliver a wide range of long-term performance benefits (and marketing strengths) to any project.
Val-U-Therm delivers a very high level of thermal efficiency from a relatively thin panel. It offers a cost-effective way to deliver a load-bearing structural envelope with thermal insulation U-values in the range 0.09 W/m2K to 0.23 W/m2K. This means that the system can help maximise the amount of living space on a plot and the number of dwellings in a development – and so help improve a developer’s profitability.
For example, when Val-U-Therm is used, an extra two houses can potentially be fitted on to a 50 house development. This is in comparison to traditional construction techniques which require thicker walls to achieve the same level of thermal efficiency.
Every aspect of the Val-U-Therm manufacturing process is designed with efficiency as the key priority. This allows the manufacturer to make significant savings which are passed on to the customer. Key value initiatives include:
Val-U-Therm is typically 30-40% quicker to erect than open panel timber frame systems where the insulation, vapour control layer, service zone battens and windows and external doors are fitted on site. This can help developers to significantly reduce their construction costs.
Val-U-Therm delivers high thermal performance buildings that have value ‘engineered in’. This added value is best illustrated by the exceptionally low running costs of a typical Val-U-Therm home.
