Trisomet® new thicker panel achieves lower U-value
Tata Steel has extended its Trisomet® insulated panel range to a core thickness of 135 mm which meets the lower U-value of 0.15W/m2K required for the latest Scottish Technical Standard (Section 6) for ‘Shell and fit out’ buildings.
Scottish Technical Standard for ‘Shell and fit out’ buildings
New buildings in Scotland which have been constructed as a shell, for later fit out that are not the subject of a staged building warrant, should meet the maximum U-values for building elements of the insulation envelope as shown below:
Reducing C02 emissions and operational energy costs
Regulations play an important role in improving the sustainability of buildings and lower U-values can provide important gains in reducing C02 emissions and operational energy costs. Building owners and developers recognised the commercial benefits that these initial gains can bring with the addition of future-proofing against more onerous regulations and increased energy prices.
Our Technical Department are on-hand and will be happy to discuss the design requirements for your building in conjunction with the Scottish Technical Standards or Approved Document Part L which covers the regulation requirements for England & Wales.
We can also offer a service to quickly compare levels of envelope performance, lighting, heating and additional renewable energy sources to estimate optimum solution for emission targets and operational energy use. Please contact us on 01244 892199 for further details.
