Timber frame specialist chooses Actis Hybrid range

Latest News Thu, Jul 14, 2016 10:59 AM

A Shropshire timber frame specialist which discovered the Actis Hybrid complete insulation system a year ago is on a mission to use the products on as many of its new projects as it possibly can – not least because it is so clean and easy to install.

Timber Kit Solutions, which builds around 150 units a year, says the three products in the Hybrid range ‘tick all the boxes’ and is doing its utmost to steer customers towards choosing that as their preferred insulation system.

MD Simon Ball explained: “When discussing specification with clients, we go through all aspects of their build from start to finish. With regards to the insulation, I show them various options including Actis and I talk them through the benefits of each type. When they ask what I’d recommend, I say Actis because of the ease of installation and the fact there’s no dust or mess, which for me as an important factor.

“We specify it wherever possible – its thermal performance is excellent, it is cost effective and there is no dust when cutting it. Plus there are no itchy fibres which can be unpleasant to the skin. We also get excellent customer support and technical advice when needed.”

While self build projects make up a large part of Timber Kit Solutions order book, the company also provides timber frame structures for small to medium sized developers, commercial buildings, apartment blocks up to and including five storeys, and nursing homes across Shropshire and the wider UK.

The fact that the Actis Hybrid range offers three products which can be used in a mix and match combination is another its key selling points.

The system was designed so that builders could use just one of the three products - a honeycomb style insulation available in a variety of thicknesses, a breather membrane and a vapour control layer – or use two or three of the materials as an all-in-one complete system.

Actis users tend to choose either two or all three products: mainly the insulation, Hybris with the breather membrane Boost’ R Hybrid or Hybris with the vapour control layer HControl Hybrid. Not all constructions, such as refurbishments, are suitable for all three products. However, the use of the entire Hybrid system is perfect for new builds.
