Fabric First Materials First Performance First Slogan


‘Build light > Insulate right > Solar tight’

If you build with thin walls (e.g. SIPS, with Plastic insulation or Mineral wool they will keep winter heat in an very well.

If you subject them to summer sun, as you do, then the radiant heat will get in through those insulation materials and then their conductivity will keep it in.

Hence overheating. 

Take great care with MMC

Don’t be seduced by great layouts.  Design is not everything.

‘Fabric First > Materials First > Performance First’
