   To achieve the best U values & Acoustic properties whilst caring for the environment with significant cost savings I’m sure you will find Durisol to be of interest for this or any future project you may be involved with. Attached is our brochure & I have included a small introduction to our system so as not to take up too much of your time.   Durisol Walling System   Durisol UK offers a sustainable walling system made from recycled timber that is mineralised to make it inert then mixed with cement to form Durisol woodcrete. The Durisol product does not burn or rot & is unattractive to rodents insects etc. It is used for building insulated concrete walls in less time and with significant cost savings compared to other methods.  I’m aware you are probably looking at alternative methods of construction that meet the stringent requirements of local authorities whilst caring for the environment. Durisol has a 50 year plus, successful history, in Europe & N America as a main stream building product.     Durisol reduces the time required to construct the walls as well as the skilled labour needed to erect them, saving up to 30% in cost, using more than 80% recycled materials & providing excellent thermal properties, latest tests carried out shows our 365 unit achieves a U Value of 0.19 excluding any external or internal finishes. Our Acoustic properties has a wall sound transmission coefficient (STC) rating ranging between 54 & 72 The noise reduction coefficients (NRC) ratings are as high as 0.95 meaning 95% of the sound that reaches the Durisol material is absorbed. This backs up our claim that we achieve a very high degree of sustainability for a very low cost.    BRE are currently undertaking a BREEAM assessment on the Durisol Walling Unit & have indicated it will be granted an A PLUS Rating.
