Sliding into compliance

EcoTherm is putting its technical knowledge in your hands with the release of a handy Eco-Cavity Full Fill U-value Slider. Available in Builders’ Merchants and from the EcoTherm Area Sales Managers, the new tactile aid provides a quick and easy way for builders to select the correct thickness of Eco-Cavity Full Fill to achieve the required U-value.
 
The tool features ten internal block lambda values for both brick and rendered dense block walls. Users simply pull the slider to reflect their project’s specifications and reveal the U-value that can be achieved by the 90 mm, 115 mm and 140 mm thick Eco-Cavity Full Fill boards. 
 
EcoTherm Eco-Cavity Full Fill board dimensions are sized to co-ordinate with brick and block sizes and heights, allowing them to be easily installed with standard wall tie methods. Their tongue and groove edges offer a superior fit and increased resistance to moisture penetration. A residual 10 mm cavity should be retained when installing the boards to accommodate mortar squeeze and to provide further protection against moisture ingress. Thanks to the product’s low thermal conductivity, it can offer improved thermal performance than comparable mineral fibre solutions.
