New pocket guide to Part L
British Gypsum has published a pocketsize guide to meeting the 2006 Part L thermal regulations using Gyproc ThermaLine laminates.
Designed for smaller contractors and general builders working in both the new-build and refurbishment sectors, the new 1/3A4 colour guide outlines the key requirements of the 4 Approved Documents which make up the new Part L, and provides the user with a range of solutions for both solid and cavity external walls and flat or pitched roofs.
Combined solutions that use high performance Gyproc ThermaLine laminate linings to top-up the performance of traditional cavity wall or loft insulation to meet or exceed ADL minimum design U-values, and contribute to the overall SAP 2005 rating, now provide a popular route for house builders. The new guide details a number of different cost-effective combinations that can be used dependant on the performance level required.
The guide also outlines the new requirements for air-permeability, with recommendations for sealing dry lined elements to improve air-tightness, and includes details of British Gypsum products, such as new Gyproc SoundCoat that can be used to seal masonry backgrounds prior to drylining.
Copies of the new guide are available free by ringing 08705 456123, or may be downloaded from the company’s website www.british-gypsum.com.
