Partial Fill insulation is the latest product to be listed on the SAP (standard assessment procedure) Appendix Q website.
Sue Ballard, Jablite’s Technical and Innovation Manager, comments: “This is a very welcome development, it means that Jablite Dynamic
insulation can be used by housebuilders all over the country – including in Wales, Cornwall and Scotland and other high exposure zones where full fill cavity is not certified for use by the NHBC (National Housebuilding Council).
“Plus, a new build project just completed by Lovell Partnerships found the Jablite Dynamic
Partial Fill insulation exceeded the performance predicted using the SAP Appendix Q methodology.”
The Lovell Partnerships’ house in Bassaleg, South Wales is a new build semi-detached Raglan dwelling. A 26m² wall (34% of the property’s entire wall area) has Jablite Dynamic
insulation installed and has averaged a U-value of 0.081W/m²k. This is 26% better than the 0.11W/m²k that was expected using the SAP Appendix Q calculation method.
Stuart James, Regional Buyer from Lovell, said: “The findings of the monitoring report provide tangible evidence that we made the right choice with Jablite Dynamic
insulation and we see this as a viable solution in the future for achieving our energy performance targets.”
