Creating a sustainable home with our energy efficient insulation panels

Not only are our encapsulation systems highly energy efficient once built, they are also highly energy efficient when being manufactured due to their recycled Warmcel insulation; The large format panels also reduce time on site due to the smaller number of components that have to be put together.

Eco Friendly Insulation

The insulation in our encapsulation systems come from printing over-runs of newspaper print, so the waste that would have gone to landfill is now being used to insulate our clients oak frame homes.

Alongside this they are thermally efficient thus saving more energy. There is also zero waste when they are being installed, as there is no cutting of the products and any spilt insulation can be retrieved and used again. As we blow the Warmcell into a closed cavity at high pressure we can ensure there are no gaps and that every nook is filled, eliminating cold spots and saving money for you. The large format panels are transported to site, already assembled – saving time. Whichever way we look at this system, it saves – for the environment and for you the self-builder.

WrightWall Natural, is our premium system built so that walls achieve 0.15 W/m2K and roofs achieve 0.12 W/m2K which is a code for sustainable homes level 6. Some systems that achieve this level of thermal efficiency do not have a high decrement delay figure due to the lightweight makeup of the insulation, our WrightWall Natural encapsulation system boasts a high decrement delay figure due to the high density of the insulation meaning that it takes a very long time for the outside sun to travel through the envelope and into the building, keeping vaulted spaces and room-in-roofs at a comfortable temperature all year round. It also means that any heating that is used is kept inside the building for longer.

Sound Insulation Panels

As we live on a small island and population is increasing, sound deadening is an important factor to consider. Using cellulose in our Natural System ensures your home is shielded from outside noise and installing it in the floors and internal partitions will prevent noise from travelling around the house, leaving your rooms calm, warm and healthy. WrightWall Natural and its use of cellulose as a major component offers the truly eco-friendly solution and takes waste that society would normally discard and turning it into an essential product that we require. It also allows us to recycle the insulation when the building does come to the end of its life.
