Jablite Extends External Wall Insulation

Jablite has extended its external wall insulation "package" to include Jablite BaseTherm™ boards to fit below the wall insulation panels

June 2013: The new BaseTherm™ board is manufactured using low moisture absorption expanded polystyrene (EPS) to provide an excellent thermal performance whilst preventing low level condensation and cold bridging.

The flood proof BaseTherm™ board is lightweight and easy-to-handle; it can be easily be cut to size on site using a craft knife or a fine tooth saw. BaseTherm™ comes in standard thicknesses of 50mm and 100mm and can also be supplied in 5mm increments between 100mm and 250mm.

Sue Ballard, Jablite Technical Innovations Manager, explains why the BaseTherm™ was developed, “We were asked by external wall insulation installers if we could supply base boards – currently they have to find and buy something suitable locally from builders merchants.

“We examined our product range and realised that we had an insulation board that would work perfectly – so the Basetherm™ board was born.

“Now installers can order the entire external wall insulation ‘wrap’ for a building from one source and have it all delivered to site as one order- guaranteeing a high quality installation and insulation performance.”

The expanded polystyrene (EPS) used to manufacture Jablite BaseTherm™ is rated A+ in the BRE Green Guide to Specification.
