Success Stories

The Zed House takes a fabric-first approach, supported by a range of smart and renewable technologies, to ensure high standards of energy efficiency in this zero carbon home. Glidevale Protect is an important partner on this project, who has provided high quality reflective membranes to enhance the wall’s thermal performance, helping to reflect radiant heat and prevent energy loss from the timber-frame home.
Oliver Novakovic, Group Technical and Innovation Director at Barratt Developments PLC
Having been a user of Glidevale Protect’s reflective membranes for some years and an advocate of continued product development and performance, Timber PAK were delighted that Glidevale Protect thought ‘out of the box’ for this project. The innovative idea to use TF InterFoil within a cavity designed into the closed panel allowed us to not only achieve our target U-value but also save money on insulation material – a win-win! The make-up with the three membrane solution is now one of our standard wall types for clients and I would recommend this product combination for the more onerous new build specifications. Three is certainly the magic number for Timber PAK on this development!

The use of numerous Glidevale Protect products for this development helped us meet specification and achieve our target U-values of 0.18 W/m2K for external walls and 0.14W/m2K for the roof element. With the many benefits of offsite manufacture over traditional construction including build speed, quality precision and reliability, we wanted a supplier who understood these principles to ensure our delivery demands were met. Glidevale Protect supplied products quickly which enabled our process to run without interruption and facilitated swift turnaround at the factory.

The membranes used from Glidevale Protect tick all the boxes of performance for this unique café development. As the building is sited in a particularly harsh and exposed coastal climate, it was critical that the outer membrane Protect Thermo Extreme offered a primary line of protection to the whole of the external wall during the construction as well as providing enhanced thermal resistance to meet our target U-value. Combined with Protect VC Foil Ultra, which we have tried and tested over many years, this ensured condensation risk was managed and controlled.
