Energy Efficiency

Insulation is crucial in energy-efficient homes to enable thermal benefits and reduced heating costs. With modern Building Regulations dictating improved standards of insulation, timber frameworks are naturally insulating and can be combined with additional insulation. This process is critical to reducing fuel consumption and improving climate care. Factory-fitted insulation helps customers to achieve the best possible ratings for their homes, optimising overall build efficiency. Offering a selection of cutting-edge insulation materials with intelligent vapour control layers to deliver outstanding U-Values and airtightness, Frame Technologies are at the forefront of energy-efficient timber structures in the offsite industry.

The lower the U-Value, the better the insulation, and Frame Technologies’ insulation solutions can achieve between 0.30 and less than 0.09W/m2K, meeting the minimum required U-Value of 0.30W/m2K in external walls of new build homes. Frame Technologies insulation solutions can also comply with any Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) and calculation requirements. SAP is the UK protocol adopted to assess the energy performance of new residential dwellings.

Our experts are always on hand to help you identify the best energy-efficient timber solution for your project.

  • Mineral Wood (glass or stone) delivers zero-rated Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP). The structure of the finished product enables intense compression of the rolls during packaging, reducing transportation requirements. Both glass wool and rock wool have a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than five.  Frame Technologies offer onsite fitting or supply only packages.
  • Sheep’s Wool, Hemp and Wood Fibre are natural products, each sustainable, renewable and safe to handle without specialist equipment. We supply standard-sized rolls to make installation quick and easy in supply only packages. All products naturally regulate moisture and temperature, are breathable and have zero Global Warming Potential (GWP).
  • Recycled Paper is made from recycled newspaper and installed by spraying or blowing the material into walls and cavities. This method ensures airtightness and minimises the potential for gaps. Recycled paper has a zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP), a negative Global Warming Potential (GWP) and requires onsite fitting by Frame Technologies.
  • Rigid Urethane with Foil Facings is manufactured less than ten miles from the Frame Technologies site through a process that does not produce any CFCs or HCFS and delivers zero-rated Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP). Frame Technologies provide factory-fitted and supply only packages.
