Direct Portable Buildings are pleased to announce that Thermal Break Insulation will be available as an optional extra and in the very near future be standard in all of our, granny flats, demountable homes and portable buildings.
This is a fantastic product, particularly when use with steel frame buildings that we use in our Granny Flats. The main purpose of this type of insulation is to inhibit the heat transfer from metal cladding or any type of cladding to the steel frame. It adds so much value to the thermal quality of the buildings. We use one the highest rated products on the market, achieving impressive thermal performance coupled with acoustic benefits. It has some of the highest reflectivity values on the market while retaining effective cost savings due to the additional overlap piece, one of the premium products available. Installed total system R-values* range up to R2.3 for walls, R2.8 for Metal Roofs and R2.4 for Tile Roofs. Coupled with R2.0 Glasswool Batts and 10mm Gyprock gives you over R4.3 in the walls which is well above industry standards.
Manufactured in Australia to the highest industry standards. It is a pliable building membrane with low flammability. The non-reflective poly woven fabric use in eliminates glare during the installation process and provides increased strength to prevent tearing prior to the installation. Thermal Break Insulation reduces summer heat gain and winter heat loss in a building. This enhances energy efficiency and in so doing helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We are committed to energy efficiency in all our Granny Flats, demountable homes and portable buildings. Insulation is a low cost high gain investment in your building which will say cool in summer and warm in the winter months.
