Constructional Insulation

SEMPATAP THERMAL SOLID WALL INSULATION is a remarkable thermal insulation which, when applied inside the property on the external walls, substantially reduces heat loss making rooms immediately feel warmer. It is often referred to as “magic wallpaper”, “insulated wallpaper” or ‘flexible insulating lining’.

Eco living: the Leicestershire home that powers itself

Eco living: the Leicestershire home that powers itself - "Traditional rooftop solar panels are joined by more experimental technology including “solar walls”, which preheat air before it is pumped into the home’s ventilation system, and an “Earth Energy Bank”, which stores excess summer heat in super-insulated underground pipes, releasing it during the winter."

Strawbale construction: 3 times the insulation value of a conventional wall; 3 times more fire proof than a conventional home (yes, you read that right!); lessens pollution by using a waste material that normally contributes significantly to the pollution cycle; ideal building system for the owner builder; incredibly sound proof; able to withstand natural disasters (earthquakes, high wind/tornado) significantly better than a conventional home; aesthetically beautiful. <3
