External Insulation
Stopter System

AVAL STOPTER is a thermal insulation system of buildings, a corporate version of the method included in guidelines of the Building Research Institute no. 334/2002 — "Jointless thermal insulation system of external building walls." It consists in fixing thermals insulation made of foamed polystyrene boards to exter- nal surfaces of building walls and preparation of a reinforced layer, a render coating and, optionally, a paint coating on the insulation. The system can be applied on new or existing external surfaces. AVAL STOPTER system with foamed polystyrene boards max. 250 mm thick is classified as not spreading fire (NRO).


Hoter System
AVAL HOTER is a thermal insulation system of buildings, The system can be applied on new or existing external surfaces. AVAL a corporate version of the method included in guidelines of the Building Research Institute no. 334/2002 — "Jointless thermal insulation system of external building walls." It consists in fixing thermals insulation made of foamed polystyrene boards to exter- nal surfaces of building walls and preparation of a reinforced layer, a render coating and, optionally, a paint coating on the insulation. HOTER system with foamed polystyrene boards max. 250 mm thick is classified as not spreading fire (NRO).

Roker System
System (ETICS) with render coatings. The product has been given European Technical Approval no. ETA-06/0173 issued in accordance with guidelines of European Technical Approvals ETAG 004:2000. The main objectives of the system are as follows: - providing external walls with appropriate thermal insulation, - increase durability of external walls by ensuring better protection from weather. The thermal insulation technology consists in fixing thermals insula- tion made of mineral wool boards to the external surface of building walls and preparation of a reinforced layer, a render coating and, optionally, a paint coating on the insulation. The system can be applied on new or existing external surfaces of vertical building wall (plastered or not) made of masonry or adhered materials, such as bricks and blocks (ceramic, lime-sand, stone, cellular concrete), or of concrete (poured at the construction site or in the form of pre- fabricated elements). It can also be fixed o n surfaces of horizontal or tilted structural elements provided that they are not directly exposed to precipitation. These may include ceilings over passages, internal walls and roofs (on the ceilingÕs side) of garages or cel- be used should have reaction to fire class: A1 or A2-s1 d0 accord- ing to EN 13501-1.

Dry lining insulation
From extensive research and practical application, Buildserv Insulation have pioneered a dry lining wall solution for the Irish Market. This involves a qualified technicians installing up to 82.5 mm of Insulation coupled with airtight membrane leaving a skimmed plaster finish. The typical application will achieve a U-value of 0.27 W/m2K which is required under the SEI guidelines and for HES Scheme grant approval.

Attic Insulation
In accordance with the best practice and SEI guidelines Buildserv Insulation carry out a complete attic insulation service to include a minimum depth of 300 mm quilting, attic hatch insulation and airtightness, a complete water tank insulation solution and insulated walk boards/storage area. It is also important to note that the above are requirements to be eligible for the HES Scheme grant.
The standard Buildserv Insulation attic insulation U-value is 0.14 W/m2K achieved using tw o layers of 150 mm thick Rockwool insulation batts laid at 90º to each other (quilting). This exceeds the current minimum U-value of 0.16 W/m2K in the Building Regulations.

Extension
Whether you are adding one small room or doubling the size of your house we offer a comprehensive, professional service & competitive pricing. We specialise in building your dream home extension, sunroom or porch with matching materials thus making the extension look part of your original house.

New building

We offer full guidance throughout the building project and are always at hand to assist with questions or special requirements you may have. We are in a position to advise our customers on such matters as the new E.U Directive on the Energy ratings of buildings (EPBD) which was implemented on 6th January 2007 and how this will impact directly on the value of your property when construction is complete.

Passive house
A passive house is an energy-efficient building with year-round comfort and good indoor environmental conditions without the use of active space heating or cooling systems. The space heat requirement is reduced by means of passive measures to the point at which there is no longer any need for a conventional heating system; the air supply system essentially suffices to distribute the remaining heat requirement. A passive house provides very high level of thermal comfort and provision of whole-house even temperature. The concept is based on minimising heat losses and maximising heat gains, thus enabling the use of simple building services. The appearance of a passive house does not need to differ from a conventional house and living in it does not require any lifestyle changes. Passive houses are light and bright due to large glazed areas designed to optimise solar gains, as well as healthy buildings in which to live and work due to fresh air supply through the ventilation system.
