Closed Panel Solutions
renewable energies, Breather Membrane, Timber Frame Panels
Our panel systems offer a range of configurations to suit various
'u' values and air tightness requirements.
Air tightness is a key factor and our closed panel system, where insulation and vapour control barriers are pre-fitted in the factory, can achieve high levels. Renewable energies, such as heat pumps, solar, PV, etc, can also be utilized to work in conjunction with our super insulated frames.
After consulting with our partnering clients, we developed a closed panel method of construction. Made from either 90mm, 140mm or 235mm CLS, these are structural engineered panels forming the inside load bearing leaf of the cavity wall. During the manufacturing process the Timber Frame Closed panel system is made from treated softwood timber framing over which a structural sheet material of either 9mm WBP Ply or OSB board known as sheathing is fixed with a vapour permeable but waterproof membrane fixed to the outside.
The appropriate insulation quilt and vapour barrier is fitted during the manufacturing process in an ideal dry environment, the panel is then clad on the internal leaf with a structural sheet material being 9mm WBP Ply and OSB board, a 25mm x 50mm service batten is applied to the internal sheathing providing a service void for the M&E Services.
The advantage is an airtight structure with on site work reduced to a minimum.
