GENERAL PRODUCTS | PRODUCT PROFILES Sound choice in roof window design Great opportunity in Dubai Site Manager/Project Manager/Operation Manager APRIL 2017 | BUILDING PRODUCTS 63 Incorporating two methods of noise reduction technology, Ultima roof windows from Dakea make use of ‘comfort’ glass and come with an impressive 20 year guarantee. Sound reduction capabilities are provided by airborne- and impactsound insulation, a combination of a toughened 6mm thick external pane, two layers of sound absorbing foil and cladding with noise absorbing tape. This combination is claimed to reduce the volume of both external noise and impact sound by 50%. Work on the glazing construction has resulted in a roof window that reflects 95% of harmful UV rays. With U-values as low as 1.2 W/m2K, the innovative roof window keeps properties cool during the summer and warm during winter, reducing household energy bills. Self-cleaning capabilities are also offered with this system and – alongside the 20 year warranty – there is lifetime cover against hail damage. For the installation process, the roof window comes supplied with accessories that include underfelt foil collar and insulating foam collar. www.dakea.co.uk Slimmer insulation for university project Refurbishment of a Grade II listed building and part new-build at Sunderland University has included the use of Celotex FR5000 insulation board. The work being carried out at the university will provide modern facilities for innovative businesses and start-ups. Specifying the appropriate rainscreen cladding system for the Sciences Complex was imperative to the project’s success, with thermal and structural considerations playing a crucial role throughout the decision making process. The result was the choice of 11m to 12m vertical of the FR5000 across the project, which was selected primarily because of its lambda of 0.021W/m2K and impressive U value calculation compared with typical insula tion boards. Made from rigid polyisocyanurate, it prevents moisture build-up and, the company claims, future-proofs the energy performance of the refurbished building. Achieving the same U-value performance with a mineral wool solution would have required a much thicker design. The rigid PIR construction also offered advantages when it came to handling and installing the rainscreen cladding on site. www.celotex.co.uk PFC is seeking a highly motivated and goal-oriented commercial roofing, waterproofing and cladding Managers to join our growing Production Team based in Dubai.
