Celotex tuff-R Zero GA3000Z multi-purpose insulations boards have been used throughout the eco-friendly Haddon Lake House project in St Lawrence on the Isle of Wight.
The house is located in a two-acre lake and historic walled garden complex that once formed part of a Victorian residence dating from 1832.
Planning permission was granted to the site owners, landscape designer Phillippa Lambert and graphic designer husband Steve, as part of a package to restore the lake and recreate the garden. The house employs renewable natural resources and is intended to have minimal environmental impact.
The major focus on maximising energy conservation is exemplified in the widespread use of Celotex tuff-R Zero GA3000Z, supplied through Encon Insulation Ltd. Although underfloor heating has been installed, it is never likely to be used, such is the extremely high insulation specification that cocoons Haddon Lake House.
The Celotex tuff-R Zero GA3000Z insulation forms a thermal sheathing layer that encapsulates the whole building structure, thereby maximising the thermal efficiency of the structure. Internally the floor specification also incorporates a layer of Celotex tuff-R Zero GA3000Z insulation underneath a screeded floor that contains the underfloor heating elements.
Celotex tuff-R Zero GA3000Z space saving insulation boards offer the most straightforward and cost effective solution to meet or exceed current and future thermal insulation standards. The environmental impact of tuff-R Zero has been fully and positively assessed by the BRE - for more details contact Celotex to receive an Environmental Information Sheet or visit www.celotex.co.uk
