BBA Cer­ti­fied, Apollo In­su­la­tion Ltd pro­vide a va­ri­ety of com­pos­ite lam­i­nates. Apollo’s heat re­flec­tive mem­brane Eco-brite® pre­vents 96% of ra­di­at­ing en­ergy pass­ing through struc­tures in­clud­ing tim­ber frame homes and cab­ins. It also acts as an ex­cel­lent vapour bar­rier and helps make build­ings air-tight. Used to re­place the usual vapour bar­rier, it greatly im­proves heat re­ten­tion when cold out­side yet helps keep a build­ing cool dur­ing hot weather. For ex­am­ple, in a brick/tim­ber frame wall construction a U-value of 0.28 W/ m²k is achiev­able us­ing the Eco-brite sys­tem with only 100mm of fi­bre in­su­la­tion on a 90mm stud. Sim­i­lar sav­ing can also be made on loft con­ver­sions. For over 15 years it has been suc­cess­fully spec­i­fied within the fab­ric of homes pro­vid­ing a highly cost-ef­fi­cient in­su­la­tion method that meets cur­rent Build­ing Reg­u­la­tions.
