Engineer:

Ray Keating

Challenges

PABIA Consulting engineer’s were tasked with upgrading the EUROSPAR building and providing a product that would meet the demands set out by all involved. They required a product that could be retrofitted externally into the cavity wall, while involving minimum disruption to the tenants and customers. The product needed to provide the necessary insulation requirements while adhering to the fire regulation for this building type. A fast application was also essential to ensure due to the business demands.

 

Solution

Having reviewed many alternative products, PABIA specified FIRETITE as the product of choice to satisfy their demands. FIRETITE is an environmentally friendly product and poses no risk to the installer or the building occupant. This allowed work to be carried out during working hours with no need for the tenant or customers to vacate the building during installation. FIRETITE mineral clay cavity wall insulation offered the Engineers the comfort of a Class A2 fire rated insulation, complying with all regulations. It also offered the added benefits of an airtight product, with a thermal value of 0.034W/mK. FIRETITE is the worlds first three component mineral clay insulation developed after many years of extensive research to create this unique formulation

Installers Testimony

“We install several products for cavity walls, but FIRETITE was the only insulation product we could offer for this project, due to the insulation and fire requirements. The project was completed ahead of time and both the engineers and clients were extremely impressed with Warm N’Cosy and the FIRETITE product”

– Gerry Donnelly, Managing Director of Warn N’Cosy Homes
