BEWI Launches High Performing Cavity Wall Insulation Board

BEWI is pleased to announce the launch of its KIWA-certified Pro-Foil Cavity Wall Insulation.

This new insulation product combines high performance EPS (expanded polystyrene) with a low emissivity rainwater barrier ensuring the optimum insulating performance.

Stefania Cappiello, Group New Product Development (NPD) Manager for BEWI, explains how this new insulation benefits house builders to meet Part L requirements and to minimise the house footprint, “There are four key benefits this product offers; one is the continuity of the insulation below the damp proof course, an important element in Part L requirements.

“Secondly, the performance is KIWA-accredited to be used with an air cavity of 25mm instead of the standard 50mm and thirdly, the product helps to reduce thermal bridges. And lastly, once installed the product acts as a rainwater barrier – doing two jobs in one; insulation and protection from rain when a 50mm cavity is the required cavity.”

If you would like more detailed information, BEWI provides a product overview and technical information on its website with details of how to achieve U-values as low as 0.015 W/m²K in a full-fill or a partial-fill build up.
