U Values In Focus
Heat loss from floors can contribute significantly to the overall performance of the fabric of the house. Beamshield systems can achieve U-values as low as 0.06W/m2K by offering a complete un-bridged layer of insulation above and/or below the beam as well as infill units in-between. The continuity of the insulation is ensured by the interlocking design of the Beamshield units as detailed below.
U-values are bespoke calculations for each individual floor. All the Beamshield systems are flexible and can adapt to the design of each floor. A wide range of beam configurations and house types can be accommodated.
