Materials

Web site (34)We endeavour to find our raw materials from as close to home as possible thus encouraging our local economy to grow and at the same time passing on the savings we make from low transport costs as well as the quality of locally provided resources to you.

We have three standard methods for wall construction each with their own merits:

  • Scandinavian softwood involves solid timber beams, which start with a minimum width from 90mm but we like to use 140mm as a minimum to give you that little bit extra. These are solid beams and 90mm is the minimum required width in order to pass building control regulations.
  • Locally sourced Welsh Douglas Fir or Larch, which is also used as solid beams starting at 140mm.
  • We are one of a limited number of companies that can offer I-beams which involve a new method of insulation that can result in a minimum of 15% improvement in energy efficiency. I-Beams also allow for longer spans in order to create stronger structures meaning bigger spaces for you. We give you a wall thickness starting at 250mm up to 400mm.

This is merely a brief introduction of what we can do for you, however we like to place the emphasis on the customers’ needs and requirements and we are more than happy to produce individual quotes in order to help you decide what you’d like.

A structured web board made from wood and hemp fibres, that is light in weight but is excellent at reducing thermal bridging, and had a high load bearing capacity.
  • It’s manufactured from 100% recycled waste newspaper
  • It requires far less energy to produce than any other mainstream insulation material
  • It plays a major part in reducing household CO2 emissions by reducing heating demand
  • It can be disposed of safely without creating toxic waste or biodegradability problems.
  • It is formulated to protect it against any potential hazards that may be encountered in use
  • It is resistant to biological and fungal attack, treated against insects and is unattractive to vermin as well as being extremely resistant to fire.
  • Warmcel also has typical thermal conductivity values of 0.035W/mK by comparison to Rockwool, which has a thermal conductivity value of 0.044W/mK.
