Jablite technical manual approved by RIBA
Published: 02 October, 2009
BELVEDERE: Jablite, a leading manufacturer of expanded polystyrene insulation, is celebrating the fact that its Insulation Technical Manual has been approved by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for inclusion in its CPD Providers Network.
The Jablite Insulation Technical Manual was rigorously evaluated by the team of RIBA assessors who benchmarked it against strict best practice guidelines.
This process ensures that RIBA’s CPD Providers Network has access to the very highest standards of documentation for use by architects and specifiers, as well as ensuring it is totally focused on the needs of construction professionals.
The technical manual, which will now be added to the RIBA assessed materials list, provides detailed technical information, backed up by application and installation drawings, on the use of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation in floors, walls and roofs.
The 206 page document includes unbiased reference information that architects and specifiers will find essential in meeting Building Regulations and industry codes of practice.
Richard Lee, sales director at Jablite, explains: “We are delighted that our technical manual has been recognised in this way, which is testament to the extensive resource of technical information it contains. Receiving independent approval from RIBA will help us to communicate the benefits of expanded polystyrene (EPS) to an even wider section of insulation product specifiers. EPS is rapidly becoming the material of choice for many architects and specifiers because it offers excellent long term performance, along with proven sustainable properties.”
This latest accolade follows recognition from the Building Research Establishment (BRE), which recently awarded EPS an A+ rating in its Green Guide to Specification, which confirmed that Jablite is a high performance insulation material with the very best sustainability credentials.
Jablite will be building on its inclusion in RIBA’s Providers Network by offering architects and other construction professionals.
