Vactherm VACUPOR ®

Vactherm VACUPOR ® Insulation chosen by Manchester Social Housing Vacutherm worked with Eastland Homes as they undertook the upgrade of Enerley Close; two social housing blocks and successfully achieved the Enerphit Standard and have recently won a UK Passivhaus award. The project consisted of 32 maisonettes; the buildings were in poor repair with complaints from residents of damp, condensation and draughts. Vacutherm’s VACUPOR ® vacuum insulation aided this project. VACUPOR ® is a vacuum insulated panel that is able to deliver excellent U-values using a minimum thickness, making it ideal for retrofit projects. VACUPOR ® was specified at Enerley Close as specifying a thicker material would have meant restricting headroom and doorways. The VACUPOR ® NT used at this project delivered a U-Value of 0.21 W/m 2 k for just 30mm of thickness. The thermal conductivity as quoted on the product’s CE certificate is 0.007 W/mK. Director, Simon Astill, commented, “We supplied insulation to the ground floor of all the duplexes in both blocks and the panels were laid onto the 4 SPECIFIERS JOURNAL existing concrete floors”. Previously we had visited each of the flats and spoke with the tenants as was the whole ethos of the project, tenant liaison was a key objective for the whole site. This also gave us the opportunity to survey each home and to provide a detailed AutoCAD allowing the installers to follow ensuring the panels were fitted in the correct positions. The panels had a foam underlay both beneath and over the top to afford some mechanical protection during installation. With a final floating floor fitted to complete the floor.
