Val-U-Therm Wins Sustainability Solutions Award at Timber Expo
Val-U-Therm is proud to announce that it has been awarded the ‘Best Energy Efficiency/Sustainability Solutions’ Award at the Timber Expo which took place in Coventry in September. The award highlights the class-leading energy-efficiency performance of the Val-U-Therm closed panel building system.
“I was delighted to receive this award on behalf of the Val-U-Therm team,” says the company’s Managing Director Bryan Woodley. “The competition at the Expo was fierce as there were a broad range of high-performance build systems for the judges to choose from. I am very pleased that our message – that Val-U-Therm delivers exceptional thermal performance and environmental sustainability credentials in a cost-effective package – is getting through loud and clear.”
Val-U-Therm’s stand at the Expo, which was put together with its associate manufacturers Flight Timber Products Ltd, Scotframe Timber Engineering Ltd and the Walker Timber Group, was visited by thousands of interested construction professionals over the two-day event. Bryan Woodley and his team found that interest was particularly high from the commercial, housing, retail and education sectors where long-term cost savings are a priority.
A model on the stand demonstrated the three main configurations of the Val-U-Therm system – wall panels, floor panels and roof panels. The Val-U-Therm team also introduced visitors to a special fire-resistant version of Val-U-Therm that has been independently tested by UKTFA/Chiltern Fire/HSE and achieved the best Category C result.
The Timber Expo was organised for TRADA Technology by Radar Communications. It saw more than 140 exhibitors fill the Jaguar Exhibition Halls at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena. In this Olympic year, the theme of the event was to ‘inspire a generation’ and promote timber as a truly sustainable and 100% renewable material.
