building code ready
With Build Homes Better products you can meet or exceed energy codes with advanced energy-efficient insulation that creates a comfortable environment for occupants.
Our products also enable you to achieve the high standards of Passivhaus.
BuildBetter Walling is ready to finish inside and out.
On the interior, wet plaster or plasterboard can be screwed directly against the wall and the exterior can be finished in a variety of ways including rendered, wood cladding, tile hanging, brick or stone finishes.
Open plan living with plenty of light is the dream for many home owners today. To achieve this light and spacious feel without any internal walls means can mean expensive steel frames are required to break up the span into smaller elements. But thanks to the strength of BuildBetter Walling ( 5 times stronger than masonry ) steel posts can be eliminated and the floor loads easily supported without compromising thermal performance.
The BuildBetter Flooring system spreads the load of the building evenly across the footprint of the ground floor ensuring even ground pressure.
The insulating raft surrounds the part of the building touched by the ground and serves as a thermal-bridge free foundation.
Designed to support a load of 14tonnes/m2 means the BuildBetter Flooring rafts are strong enough to support a 3 storey construction with concrete walls and floors.
Certified by the Passive House Institute Darmstadt as component suitable for passive houses.
The continuous concrete core provides huge thermal stability and eliminates the need to design heating systems for peak demand.
We offer 7 thickness levels to match your thermal demands, allowing you to build to U values as low as 0.1w/m2k ( or lower), or a 0.17w/m2k in a finished wall 300mm thick.
Services are easily and quickly installed in the EPS layer.
BuildBetter Walling ICF walls deliver all the strength and performance you would expect from structural concrete and compared to wood and masonry, are much better able to withstand climate extremes.
