Thermal Conductivity (Lambda Value) Thermal conductivity, or Lambda value, is the rate at which heat is transmitted through a material, measured in watts per square metre of surface area for a temperature gradient of one Kelvin per metre thickness (W/mK). The lower the value, the better the thermal efficiency of the material. Material Lambda Value […]

Penetrations through decks affect the structural integrity, and therefore must be suitably braced, dependant on opening size. 1 – Small penetrations, through the bottom trough, can be accommodated without any additional support.

Profiled decks present a hard surface that reflects sound back into the internal environment. This can lead to longer reverberation times. The longer the reverberation time, the more ‘echoey’ a room sounds. Reverberation time performance of a room can be calculated from the areas of walls, floors and ceiling, and their absorption coefficients. Typical requirements […]
