Wetherby Launches NEW BBA Accredited and ECO Compliant IWI System

  • 10 Apr 2019

Wetherby Building Systems, the UK’s leading provider of solid wall insulation solutions, is expanding its business operations with the launch of a new BBA-approved Wetherby Internal Wall Insulation (IWI) system.

The system is fully compliant with all the stringent requirements of ECO/PAS and 25-year appropriate warranties that are available through the GDGC Ofgem Quality Assurance Framework (information valid at time of release).

Wetherby’s Internal Wall Insulation System was specifically developed to meet an increasing demand to improve the energy efficiency of properties that, due to planning constraints amongst other things, need to maintain their original exterior appearance.

Wetherby’s new system utilises a high performance rigid Phenolic insulation board, bonded to a standard 12.5mm plasterboard, available in a range of thicknesses to achieve the desired U value.

The IWI system can be used in conjunction with Wetherby’s ‘External’ Wall Insulation system to create a ‘hybrid’ solution where required.

Offering approved installers complete flexibility during installation, Wetherby’s Internal Wall Insulation System is BBA approved for use with the most diverse range of fixing techniques, including dot and dab, direct fix, timber battens and metal furring.

The BBA approved system is fully ECO/PAS compliant and Wetherby guarantee an onsite checklist is carried out, to ensure the system is suitable for the property and is being installed correctly.

ECO is now in its third phase (ECO-3) and is a Government Energy Efficiency Scheme, operated by the ‘Big 6’ energy companies, and administered by Ofgem.

Wetherby’s Internal Wall Insulation System provides a reliable long-term energy saving benefit, especially on domestic refurbishment projects and is ideal for properties where no cavity exists (solid wall).

Joe Ragdale, Wetherby’s technical director, commented on the launch: “This is something that just makes sense for us. We have received an increasing number of enquiries for IWI on projects that need to maintain their exterior appearance, for example attractive stone properties or terraced houses where there are planning constraints.

“On this type of property IWI can be installed to the relevant elevation to fulfil planning constraints, while at the same time Wetherby’s EWI system applied to the remaining elevations creating a building specific hybrid system.”

“With wall insulation widely acknowledged to have the greatest impact on regenerating thermally inefficient solid walled homes, we can now offer a complete solution for the entire property. We are expecting an influx of enquiries for our Wetherby IWI System to be used in conjunction with our EWI systems.”
