BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) sets the standard for best practice in sustainable design and in the measurement of a building’s environmental performance. BREEAM enables developers, designers and building managers to demonstrate the environmental credentials of their buildings to clients, planners and other parties.

BREEAM, MATERIAL 04 INSULATION
In this category, the specified aim of BREEAM is to “recognise and encourage the use of thermal insulation which has a low embodied environmental impact relative to its thermal properties and has been responsibly sourced.”
It is a pre-requisite of BREEAM that any new insulation specified for use within the following building elements must be assessed:
1. External walls
2. Ground floor
Jablite insulation products are made from EPS which has been given an A+ rating by the BRE.
The calculation of embodied impact relative to thermal performance is a function of the material volume (for each build), its BRE Green Guide Rating and its thermal conductivity.
The thermal conductivity of our products is available on both the product packaging and on relevant product technical datasheets which can be found on this website.
Jablite insulation products are manufactured in factories which are ISO 14001 certified and Jablite purchases raw material from suppliers who are ISO 14001 certified.
