Panels Built to Last

20 February 2015 | Updated 01 January 1970

Scotframe believes that by using a ‘fabric first’ approach, an investment in Val-U-Therm wall, roof and floor panels will last for the life of the building, and will be durable for a minimum 60 years.

The company argues that unlike renewables that need continual control by the occupants as well as frequent maintenance and certain replacement during the lifetime of the property, the Val-U-Therm system gives warm, draught-proof homes with a high comfort factor.

Features include:

  • Improved thermal performance.
  • Improved buildability.
  • Improved environmental credentials.
  • Better detailing.

The flexibility of the product is that Scotframe states that it can be employed whatever specification is required, be it 'A' rated Energy Performance Certificates, highest levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes or PassivHaus.

It is suitable for all types of domestic and commercial architecture, design, external treatment and internal finish.
