So your considering wall insulation for a new home you are constructing . You will have many choices and different architects will have varying opinions as to the best methodology of wall insulation. Most new homes with the exception of IFC homes will be built with a cavity. Some arcitects will specify a board type insulation be it polystyrene board or polyurethane board. This is typically supplied in 4 x 2 sheets is very expensive and difficult to install properly especially when it comes to joining corners etc. Builders generally do not like board for a variety of reasons mainly because it is bulky for storage , difficult to install, and incurs a lot of cut offs and waste. Other building systems will include constructing a hollow block wall and erecting a steel stud system internally and fitting board in between before finally fitting a gypsum board and skimming out.
The next option , the easiest option and the option makes most sense is to construct your cavity wall and install blown platinum bead prior to plastering. The benefits are obvious: No storage of board on site , no risk of the insulation been fitted improperly by block layers who have received no training or certification in fitting board.
Absolutely no wastage , installed by NSAI Certified insulation company’s who are fully trained in the process. The u-value which you require can be easily achieved by predetermining the width of the cavity at either 100mm /150mm, 200mm or for passive homes 250/300mm. The most common cavity width is 150mm which when filled with platinum bead achieve a u-value of .019.
