The way we build houses is changing – and JACKON is ready! New Standards are set to cut CO2 emissions from houses by up to 80%.
It will now be a mandatory requirement for housebuilders and self-builders to construct well-insulated homes. The Government is proposing target u-values of 0.15 for external walls and 0.11 for floors from 2025.
These figures may sound daunting, but JACKON can help. Its THERMOMUR 350 Super range – currently the company’s best-selling range in the UK – already achieves 0.15 for walls with no added materials, and the JACKODUR ATLAS system can be designed to achieve 0.11.
How does JACKON achieve this? Its two complementary systems, JACKODUR ATLAS, which uses XPS (extruded polystyrene) to create an insulated floor slab and THERMOMUR ICF which uses EPS (moulded expanded polystyrene) for the formwork, are the result of 60 years expertise in developing house building solutions, including for extreme climatic conditions.
ICF is a modern construction method, which integrates insulation materials into the concrete formwork, totally revolutionising the way a house is constructed.
With Passivhaus and BBA certification, as well as ease of use on site and the elimination of waste, you should definitely be using JACKON Building Systems on your next self-build project!
