Keystone’s Hi-therm+ Lintel has claimed the ‘Best Building Fabric Product’ award at this year’s Housebuilder Product Awards.
The Hi-therm lintel has been upgraded to provide enhanced practicality to builders, with Keystone investing greatly in research and development to re-engineer the Hi-therm lintel, using its industry leading ‘top hat’ design.
The new Hi-therm+ lintel is a low cost solution to reduced carbon emissions and is even easier to handle on site.
Keystone Lintels MD Derrick McFarland commented: “Keystone recognises the challenges facing house builders in relation to the increasingly demanding regulatory controls on thermal performance and sustainability.
“We recognise that a fabric first solution is preferable to builders, particularly something that is easily installed, maintenance-free and can allow them to design with 100mm cavities to ensure maximum floor space in developments.
“We are therefore proud to have been recognised for our commitment to the Fabric First approach. Our original Hi-therm Lintel won this award in 2013 and 2014 so for our innovative new design to be recognised again is fantastic.”
Winning this award means Hi-therm + Lintels automatically become a finalist in the overall ‘Product of the Year’ category at the Housebuilder Awards 2018.
This evening will be a prestigious black tie event, taking place on Thursday 1 November at the InterContinental London – The O2.
