JACKON’s two construction systems – JACKODUR® Atlas and THERMOMUR® Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) – will be on display on the company’s stand at UK Construction Week.
These products exceed the u-value targets of the new Part L building regs which are coming into effect in June this year. JACKON’s THERMOMUR® 350 Super block is the most energy efficient building system currently available. It has a U-value of 0.15 straight out of the box, ahead of the required maximum of 0.16 U-value on external walls – part of the requirement that new homes emit 31% less CO2 under the new Part L.
JACKON brings its 60 years’ expertise in EPS (moulded expanded polystyrene) and XPS (extruded polystyrene) manufacturing to the market. JACKODUR® ATLAS uses XPS (extruded polystyrene) to create an insulated floor slab, while THERMOMUR® ICF uses EPS (moulded expanded polystyrene) to create the formwork. ICF is a modern construction method, which is rapidly growing in popularity in the UK. It integrates insulation materials into the concrete formwork, totally revolutionising the way a house is constructed.
