“We used Bi-foam in the refurbishment of a 1930s detached house with existing rising damp issues. The client’s brief called for a super insulated house. Using Bi-foam we were able to eliminate any damp issues, while providing the clients with the requested level of insulation. Jurgen was great to work with, supporting us all the way through the specification, installation and Building Control sign-off process. We will be definitely specifying Bi-foam again in our future projects.”



ARCHITECTS:  Lee Evans Partnership LLP, St Johns Lane, Canterbury, Kent CT1 2QQ                                         t.01227 784444

“We have now employed Technopor on six Grade 1 and Grade 2* medieval churches, where the Technopor has been installed as a base layer for a ground-bearing dry floor system with underfloor heating and a stone or tiled top surface. The Technopor has excellent insulating and load-bearing properties and has enabled us to install a load-bearing stone floor without pumping large quantities of wet lime concrete into an historically dry building. The Jupiter dry floor system, incorporating Technopor is incredibly quick to install and has a low impact on archaeology. We’re delighted with the ease and speed with which these projects have been implemented.”

ARCHITECTS / INSTALLER:  Red Co-operative Ltd., 3 Corkland Road, Manchester M21 8UP                               t.07976 793795

“We like using Technpor because it’s an inert recyclate which supports no capillary action.  We have used Technopor as an insulant beneath floors and in chimneys where there are issues with moisture.  We have used it where the existing floor is being retained to provide an insulation layer at ground level, which resolved damp problems in the house above.  We have also used it in a build up where it formed the tamped down base layer covered with a woodfibre board incorporating underfloor heating.”



UFH INSTALLER: Jupiter Heating Systems Ltd., Unit 1, The Barns, Pennypot Lane, Surrey GU24 8DJ                 t.01276 859066
