Energy-efficient building renovations that use our solutions contribute to reducing energy consumption now and in the future. Correctly designed and insulated buildings are critical in ensuring optimal energy efficiency and sustainable cities.
Built with the right techniques, a home can produce as much energy as it uses.
Insulation’s extra benefits make it a force for good in society
Upgrading insulation creates a better living environment and saves money.
With payback in two years or less, investing in insulation could save industry millions.
Very high levels of insulation are a key element of passive construction, which keeps heat losses so low that a house can be kept warm either without heating or just by preheating the fresh air entering rooms.
When renovating old homes or planning a new development, the right combination of design and insulation can make a big difference to a building’s performance.
When environmental goals are more important than ever, improving energy efficiency in buildings presents an immediate opportunity to make our towns and cities healthier, safer and more sustainable.
We experience a room with all our senses. So shouldn’t architects spend as much time on how a space sounds as they do on how it looks?
Not all noise is bad, as any lover of loud music would agree. But unwanted noise, otherwise known as noise pollution, poses a real threat to human health and wellbeing.
As a growing body of evidence reveals the damaging impacts of noise pollution, it’s important that we respond. Good acoustic designs that absorb sound help professionals and students to think and talk more easily, and at the same time create better environments for learning and healing.
Beautiful architecture makes us feel better. The emotional impact of beautiful buildings can transcend the personal, even to the extent of improving the communities we live in.
Patients recover faster when healthcare facilities are thoughtfully designed
More complex than it seems, the building envelope creates a comfortable environment indoors
With good design and materials, rapid urbanisation can be sustainable.
Every medium- and high-rise building should only be clad and insulated with non-combustible materials
Toxic smoke inhalation causes more fire-related deaths than do the fires themselves.
All fires require three elements: a source of ignition, combustible materials, and oxygen.
High quality fire-resistant materials can make the difference between a fire in a building and a building on fire.
Non-combustibility is a core feature of fire regulations around the world, and a crucial element of building safety in the case of fire
A good indoor climate is essential to health and wellbeing now that we spend up to 90 percent of our time inside.
During home renovation, upgrading what’s inside your walls can make the biggest difference of all.
We spend a lot of time inside, so it’s important that the environment within our homes is healthy.
If you’ve ever found it hard to concentrate in a chilly room or an overheated office, you’ll understand why it’s so important to have a comfortable indoor environment.
Curing sick buildings can improve profits as well as wellbeing. As we spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors it’s important that the spaces where we work support our wellbeing.
The linear “take, make, waste” economic model is reaching its limits. The environment simply does not have the capacity to sustain it any more.
We’re all familiar with the idea of recycling. With ‘upcycling’, waste is transformed into more valuable products, thereby reducing the need for virgin materials.
Buildings have a huge untapped potential to become a central part of the solution to our urgent sustainability challenges.
Fresh water is our most precious resource. But extreme weather and fast-growing cities mean that unless we take measures to manage it more actively, it could also become scarcer.
Hydroponic greenhouse cultivation delivers higher yields from lower inputs.
When water scarcity is a growing problem, horticulture may have the answer. By using stone wool growing media together with advanced irrigation technology, growers in the Netherlands are halving the volume of water needed.
The solution to saving energy is here, today. Insulation is an easy, cost-effective way to make buildings sustainable.
We provide customers with a complete ceiling system offer, combining panels with suspension grid systems and accessories.
