The Xi Academy is a hands-on resource to assist learning about best practice building methods, insulation and sustainability, utilising both online and face-to-face training.
Ever since our launch in 1986, Xtratherm has been instrumental in developing solutions that achieve better insulated, low Carbon buildings. Solutions that allow traditional materials, supplied through local Builders Merchants to be used in the most energy efficient ‘A’ Rated buildings.
A major factor in the performance of the building fabric is not simply the amount of insulation you install, but how it interconnects with other components and the other insulated elements within the design. It has been estimated that up to 30% of the heat loss in a well-insulated building is through these ‘Non Repeating Thermal Bridges’. It is critical when calculating the performance of low energy buildings that this heat loss is measured and minimised. New module launching soon.
