INSULATION Limetherm has secured UKASaccredited Green Deal Installer status from Stroma Certification. Established by Lime Technology Group eighteen months ago, Limetherm is intended to build on its growing reputation as a total solutions provider within the field of external wall insulation (EWI), for both domestic and commercial premises. Stuart Maris, UK business account manager at Limetherm, said: “Securing CGI accreditation will enable us to expand on the work that we have successfully delivered in our first eighteen months, and in doing so help regenerate the nation’s ageing homes and premises so that they become truly fit for the future. “The government’s Green Deal will play a significant role in helping customers cut their energy bills by making improvements to their properties without paying upfront or having to take out a conventional loan. As such, it will open up a new industry opportunity and one that Limetherm is looking to be at the forefront of. And as GDI status serves to demonstrate that as an installer Limetherm is deemed competent to carry out high-quality installations that meet all relevant standards and government requirements, this will surely help that process.” Limetherm says its EWI systems and Breathe insulation stand as flexible, high performance solutions that are proven to deliver significant reductions in carbon emissions and cost savings to homeowners and businesses alike. www.limetherm.co.uk The weekly e-zine for the roofing industry.

Promat devised the fire compartment system for the gas mains in the three multi-storey housing blocks on the Ampthill Estate, which was constructed from PROMATECT-L500 boards provided by SIG Technical Insulation Beckton, and installed by Fire Delay Contractors. Neville White, Promat’s national sales manager, said: “The Fire Officers involved were insistent that the main gas riser feeding each block of flats was either moved to the exterior of the building, or was separated from the main shaft in which it was located. The latter option was taken, and it was decided to compartmentalise the gas mains with a gas-tight, enclosure that would provide 120 minutes of fire resistance. “The decision was to use 50 x 50 x 3mm steel frames fixed to the brickwork walls and clad with the PROMATECT-L500.We specified 50mm thick PROMATECT-L500 board, to which a coat of Decadex Zink Copper Stainless PROMATECT-L500 from Promat is now in use at the Ampthill estate in Camden, London was added. Decadex is a tough, elastomeric membrane that ensured that the final compartmentation was gas-tight and so protects the residents in the case of any leakage from the riser.” The residents of the estate were to remain in their homes with a gas supply provided, meaning that the installation needed to be installed in a quick phased process with little disruption. www.promat.co.uk Stuart Maris, UK business account manager at Limetherm Accredited installer 01992 801927 www.almhm.co.uk www.roofzine.com FROM THE PUBLISHERS OF
