Vencel Resil Launch Jablite Premium

Vencel Resil is well known as a supplier for the insulation, civil engineering and DIY markets. Established in 1973, the company soon became the largest producer of expanded polystyrene (EPS) in the UK seems and is registered under the BS EN ISO 9001:2000 quality assurance scheme.

Insulation is an area in which efficiency needs to be improved. Guidelines and requirements are being changed to ensure that buildings are insulated in such a way that they will use less power, thus reducing emissions and contributing to environmental initiatives. Groundwork is an area that needs to take this into account. New buildings are seen as an area in which improvements can be made easily in this respect - create them to comply to a high standard of insulation initially, and this should reduce the need for alterations in the future.

In response to these demands, Vencel Resil has launched Jablite Premium. This Low Lambda expanded polystyrene (EPS) material is recognisable as it is grey in colour with orange flecks. Sources state that it can provide a twenty per cent increase in performance when compared with more traditional materials. Jablite Premium enables conventional building techniques to be used as normal - groundwork and roof construction does not need to be altered, nor does the thickness of cavity walls. The product is easy and safe to handle as well as being durable. It does not require any specialist equipment or skills and is non-toxic and biologically inert.

The kind of Jablite Premium relevant to groundwork is Jabfloor Premium, although the material is also available for roof and cavity wall insulation. Jabfloor is obtainable in different levels of thickness, which can be selected depending on the individual requirements of the project. It can be used above a concrete slab, precast suspended concrete floor, beam and block floor system, or below a sand or cement screed. For a simple and effective method of complying with building regulations, Jabfloor is extremely versatile.
