Vencel Resil is one of the UK’s largest manufacturer’s of expanded polystyrene (EPS) and under the Jablite brand, supplies a range of bespoke insulation products and solutions to the construction, industrial and housebuilding markets. Vencel Resil specialises in providing industry-leading insulation solutions that meet current and future Building Regulations requirements for the specification of floors, walls and roofs of commercial, public sector and residential buildings.

Established in 1973, the company has been a member of the Synbra Group since 1996. Synbra is a multi-national organisation specialising in producing high quality EPS products throughout Europe. Being part of a European group means having the benefit of access to extensive resources and technology.

Technical support

Vencel Resil provides technical and design support and has a dedicated team of professionals who have extensive experience of working in the industry. Many clients find the technical support they receive invaluable in ensuring that specifications are in line with modern building requirements. Being more than just a manufacturer of EPS products, it is the company’s expertise within this sector and the knowledge within its team which establishes Vencel Resil as one of the leading providers of high performance insulation.

Jablite – a market leading insulation material

Vencel Resil has a major UK manufacturing base, where its Jablite expanded polystyrene products can be produced to specific grades and thicknesses to suit clients’ needs. As such, the company is constantly seeking ways to enhance the performance of the range. Jablite EPS is a proven insulation material, widely regarded as one of the most effective on the market, offering high thermal performance, unrivalled sustainability credentials, long-term durability, whilst ensuring its cost effectiveness in the market.

Jablite Premium

Jablite Premium is an innovative Low Lambda (EPS) insulation material that has the capacity to enhance a building’s thermal performance by up to 20%. This

enables builders and contractors to meet ever tightening Building Regulations without having to change their build

practices

A relatively new innovation in EPS

insulation, Jablite Premium is becoming widely used in the floors, walls and roofs of domestic, public sector and commercial buildings. Instantly recognisable by its distinctive grey board with orange speckles, it provides the reassurances to architects, specifiers and contractors that the material used on site is the same as the one specified and, crucially, that the resulting performance matches the approved design intent.

A major benefit of Jablite Premium is

that it offers improved U-values without having to alter the thickness of the

cavity wall or change the construction

of the floor or roof. This ensures

contractors on site maintain their efficiency, whilst clients benefit from maximum internal floorspace and low running costs.

BRE Green Guide to Specification

The Green Guide, produced by the British Research Establishment (BRE), assesses a range of building products’ environmental performance over their full life-span and awards them with a sustainability rating.

EPS has achieved an A+, which is the highest rating possible and clearly demonstrates the material’s excellent thermal and environmental credentials. The BRE ranks materials on the basis that the benefit of using any of the insulation types listed in the guide will outweigh the embodied environmental impact of their manufacture, installation and end-of-life disposal.

Environmental credentials

Expanded polystyrene is recognised for its excellent energy efficiency and low environmental impact. It has an ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) of zero and a low GWP (Global Warming Potential), which is exemplary. Vencel Resil is fully committed to sustainability in all areas of its operation. Energy saving and modern methods of construction are all carefully considered when researching and developing new products, as well as end of life recyclability.

Floor Insulation

Floor Insulation

Products: Jabfloor Premium 70 and 100

Jabfloor Premium insulation can be used in all floor constructions for both domestic and commercial buildings. The application will determine the grade of Jabfloor Premium required for your project. Jabfloor Premium 70 is mainly used for domestic floors, whereas Jabfloor Premium 100 is widely used for commercial floors where higher loadings are likely to be encountered.

Jabfloor Premium

Type

U-values

Jabfloor Premium 70 and 100 can be used below the concrete slab in solid ground- floor constructions to satisfy the relevant U-value requirements.

Jabfloor Premium is supplied as EPS 70 and 100 as defined in BS EN 13163 – Reaction to Fire Class E, containing a flame- retardant additive.

The rate of heat loss through a ground floor varies with its size and shape. The thickness of insulation required to meet a given U-value will similarly depend on the size and shape of the floor. Approved Documents L1A , L1B, L2A and L2B guide you to BS EN ISO 13370 as the method for determining floor U-values based on the floor perimeter and floor area where:

Easy to handle

Approvals

Jabfloor Premium is manufactured from expanded polystyrene (EPS) which is lightweight and easy to handle on site

Jabfloor Premium has been assessed and approved by the British Board of Agrément for use below the concrete slab in solid ground floors; Certificate number 87/1796.

Permanent

“P” is length of exposed perimeter in metres and “A” is floor area in square metres.

Jabfloor Premium is rot-proof and durable and will remain effective for the life of the building. It also has the added advantage of being flood-proof.

Dimensions

Standard size: 2400 x 1200mm. Standard thicknesses: 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 75, 100, 120, 150 and 200mm (Other thicknesses available to order)

The measurement of both the floor area and perimeter should be made on the internal finished surface of the walls enclosing the heated space; unheated areas such as garages, porches and storage spaces need not be included. For buildings such as terraces or blocks of flats and apartments, the measurement should be taken over the total gross ground-floor area.

Table 1.1 shows the required thicknesses of Jabfloor Premium 70 and 100, to meet U-values of 0.25, 0.22, 0.20, 0.18, 0.15 and 0.10W/m 2 K. These values are based on the following k-values:

technical@jablite.co.uk technical@jablite.co.uk

Solid ground floors are not required to provide fire resistance. When properly installed, Jabfloor Premium is fully protected by the concrete slab, and will have no adverse effect on the fire performance of the floor.

Jabfloor Premium can be used above or below the damp-proof membrane.

INSTALLATION

Damp-proof membrane

Jabfloor Premium should not be regarded

as a damp-proof membrane (DPM).

A suitable DPM must be provided,

positioned either above or below the

Jabfloor Premium, or on top of the

concrete slab; (See figures 1.2 – 1.4).

Liquid membranes are positioned above

the slab. The hardcore should be blinded

before receiving either the Jabfloor

Premium or the DPM. If a liquid DPM is

used, care should be taken that it is

compatible with the Jabfloor Premium and

that it is completely dry before the

insulation is laid.

Jabfloor Premium

Jabfloor Premium should be loose-laid over

the prepared surface; all joints should be

tightly butted. If the concrete slab is to be

poured directly onto the Jabfloor Premium,

the joints should be covered with

75mm-wide adhesive tape to prevent the

ingress of concrete or grout between the

boards. Vertical upstands of Jabfloor

Premium edge strip should be used around

perimeter to prevent cold bridging, as

detailed in BRE Report 262.

Concrete slab

The concrete slab is laid to the required

thickness and either tamped or power-

floated to provide the required finish.

During these operations, the surface of

Jabfloor Premium or the DPM should be

protected from impact damage or

excessive trafficking by the use of

spreader boards.

Damp-proof membrane

Jabfloor should not be regarded as a

damp-proof membrane (DPM). A suitable

DPM must be provided, positioned either

above or below the Jabfloor, or on top of

the concrete slab; (See figures 2.2 – 2.4).

Liquid membranes are positioned above

the slab. The hardcore should be blinded

before receiving either the Jabfloor or the

DPM. If a liquid DPM is used, care should

be taken that it is compatible with the

Jabfloor and that it is completely dry

before the insulation is laid.

Jabfloor

Jabfloor should be loose-laid over the

prepared surface; all joints should be

tightly butted. If the concrete slab is to be

poured directly onto the Jabfloor, the

joints should be covered with 75mm-wide

adhesive tape to prevent the ingress of

concrete or grout between the boards.

Vertical upstands of Jabfloor edge strip

should be used around perimeter to

prevent cold bridging, as detailed in BRE

Report 262.

Concrete slab

The concrete slab is laid to the required

thickness and either tamped or

power-floated to provide the required

finish. During these operations, the surface

of Jabfloor or the DPM should be

protected from impact damage or

excessive trafficking by the use of

spreader boards.
