A new collection of contemporary homes at Countryside’s Novo development in Cambridge are set to benefit from the installation of EcoTherm Eco-Torch insulation.

The Project

Countryside specialise in private housing developments and the Novo community consists of luxury 2-bed apartments and 4-bedroom houses situated around a landscaped square in the town of Great Kneighton. The site offers excellent access to local amenities and is within easy reach of London.

10,000 m2 of 100 mm thick Eco-Torch was supplied to insulate the flat roofs of the development. The product comprises a rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation core faced with coated glass tissue on one side and bituminised glass fibre tissue with polypropylene fleece on the other, achieving thermal conductivities as low as 0.024 W/mK. 

Eco-Torch is well suited to new-build applications or for upgrading the thermal performance of existing buildings as they are lightweight, easy to install, and can help to meet building regulation requirements. The flat roof board is suitable for use with any hot applied roofing system or adhered single ply system on metal, timber or concrete decks and withstands the application of hot bitumen and asphalt to the surface up to 230°C. 

All EcoTherm insulation boards are manufactured under a management system which is approved to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and BS OHSAS 18001. Their insulation core is produced with a blowing agent which is CFC/HCFC free and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) with a low Global Warming Potential (GWP).
