Choices for lofts

Our range of thermal plasterboards offer superior insulation performance with up to 46 times thermal improvement vs standard thermal board – with a minimum loss of loft space.

SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR LOFT

 

CONTROL CONDENSATION

Homes are becoming better insulated to prevent heat loss, helping the environment and lowering heating bills. Better insulation is of course a good thing however there are some challenges.

When you apply internal insulation to an outside wall the wall becomes colder. This creates a danger that warm water vapour from inside the home will get trapped behind the insulation, and as it cools it can condense on and inside the wall fabric in the same way that you get condensation on the surface of single glazed windows. 

This condensation can lead to substantial problems of damp, mould and can lead to rotting of timber elements.

ADVANTAGES

  • Reduces condensation.
  • Enables the plasterboard and the metallised membrane to be fixed in one operation.
  • Perfect for internal lining of external facing walls and ceilings.
  • Once mounted with the shiny side to the wall or ceiling the board can be finished in the normal way either by a taping and jointing process or by a plaster skim coat.

FIRE PROTECTION

GTEC Fire Board is stronger, harder and heavier than standard plasterboard and has superior fire resistance, sound insulation and impact resistance in GTEC Drywall Systems.

Several of our other performance boards also have fire resistance properties. Check products below for information on the best board for your specific project.

ADVANTAGES:

  • 60 minutes fire resistance from a 15mm single layer system.
  • Twice the protection before the wall is breached compared to standard board.
  • Achieves Part B building regulations (fire).
  • Suitable for stud partitions, wall lining and suspended ceiling systems.

NOISE REDUCTION SYSTEMS

Our noise reduction systems give you the ability to control the sound levels around your home, creating a more comfortable environment for everyone.

The type and quality of installation can have a huge impact on the performance of a noise reduction system. The combination of metal stud and mineral wool will ensure the correct sound resistance is achieved.

ADVANTAGES

  • Up to 46RwdB sound resistance from a single layer dB Board system.
  • 30 minutes of fire resistance from a single layer system.
  • Score and snap installation, the same as standard plasterboard.

THERMAL INSULATION

As energy prices and declining natural resources continue to impact on our lives, effective insulation is more important than ever.

The UK Government states reasonable provisions should be made to comply with regulations to improve thermal efficiency of areas including walls, floors and roof spaces.

ADVANTAGES

  • A range of thermal property boards available to meet your specific needs.
  • Up to 46 times thermal improvement over standard board.
  • Reduced energy costs.
  • Warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer.

SUPPORTING YOUR PROJECT

For larger projects, we add value before, during and after the construction phase. Working with the project team, we can support the initial tender, finding ways to improve aesthetics or building performance, cut construction costs, reduce build times or suggest ways to lower on-going maintenance costs. Find out our recent projects below.

Baltimore Tower

The Tower was designed by world-renowned architects Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM), and features 330 executive suites and one, two and three bedroom apartments arranged around a cylindrical, central core.  All of the apartments will be finished to a high-end specification and have their own private steel and glass formed balconies, which rotate by a few degrees as the Tower ascends to give the building its distinctive, flowing twist.Working alongside SOM, Galliard Homes and the appointed drywall contractors, OCL Facades, Siniat developed a bespoke drylining system to meet the Tower's unique architectural design while offering high-performing partitions.

Ice Arena Wales

Ice Arena Wales forms part of the £400m Cardiff International Sports Village development project. With two ice rinks and the capacity to seat 3000 in the largest arena, it has been designed to Olympic standards and will be capable of hosting international events in hockey and figure skating, along with other sports such as speed skating and curling. The Ice Arena will also support the development of the national and international ice sports squads. With the arena footprint over 6000m2, the project required over 23,500m2 of boards and over 22,000 linear metres of metal framing. The project is due for completion in Spring 2016.
