Problems:

Excel Industries the UK manufacturer went into liquidation and their manufacturing plant was sold to a Polish company


Misunderstandings:


Solutions:

  • Find Excel Warmcel suppliers and installers and find out what they are supplying and installing now

Consider:

  • U Values well above Building Regulations Approved Document: L all parts
  • Optimum thicknesses: Passivhaus or Carbon lite or equivalent standards
  • natural materials: 300 – 400 mm.
  • Blowing or spraying cavities with cellulose fibre insulation
  • Newspaper: Cellulose fibre thermal insulation in walls partitions floors and roofs

Avoid:

  • Urea formaldehyde foam insulation
  • Foamed plastic insulation See Z50
  • Hydrophobic (rock, stone, slag and glass mineral wool) insulation in timber framed construction (can hold moisture against timber which then potentially needs to be preservative treated)

Minimise:

Recycle:

Excel Industries recycled newspaper into thermal insulation

Cellulose fibre/flake is a very effective insulation since it is blown into the void and fills the whole void, unlike inaccurately cut and fitted insulation

Waste Issues:


Waste Catagory:


Hazardous waste:


Waste statistics:

  • 30 m tonnes (33% of 80-110 m. tonnes/year) of waste is offcuts (not all insulation)
  • Blown/Injected/poured in avoids offcuts
  • Bag up offcuts of insulation in original packaging (for identification purposes) return to manufacturer
  • Off-site segregation and bulking operations can collect sufficient to return to manufacturer
