Jablite announced today that its unique All-in-One Thermal Floor System is now a fully patent-protected Intellectual Property.
The black and white insulated floor systems that are starting to be seen on house building sites across the UK, are now a registered Jablite invention, only available from Jablite.
They cannot be manufactured or supplied without a Jablite license – and Jablite has no plans to issue any of those at the moment.
“The process of achieving Patent protection is a notoriously lengthy and complicated process,” explains Wayne Brown, Technical and New Product Director, Jablite.
“Our patent was first lodged in May 2015. It has been a challenging, ongoing and continuous job to keep the process moving, whilst testing for BBA accreditation and launching the new system successfully into the marketplace.”
Jablite launched the unique All-in-One Thermal Floor System in November 16. It is the first insulation manufacturer to invent a new system that includes the pre-stressed concrete beams and to supply it direct to house builders and ground workers.
“We are now in the stage of continuously improving the product with small tweaks based on feedback from ground workers and our own team’s site observations,” says Steve Broadhurst, Technical and New Product Development Manager.
“Our production team is working on ways to change our manufacturing process to develop systems that bespoke-designed to fit individual floor designs. We hope to have more announcements on this in the next few months.”
“Jablite is in the business of innovating,” says Richard Lee, Managing Director. “This patented product is part of a new system that we supply direct to the end user. This is a massive change in direction for our business and I am incredibly proud of the team here that has worked so hard to develop this new system and to launch and sell it into the market.
“Now, for the cherry on the cake we have a patent to protect our intellectual property and all the years of hard work and our £1 million investment.”
