New construction systems from JACKON are revolutionising the UK construction market.
The company has over 60 years’ experience in EPS and XPS manufacturing. There are two separate products – JACKODUR ATLAS Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) insulation and formwork system for constructing foundation slabs for energy-efficient houses. THERMOMUR insulating concrete formwork system (ICF) comprises a robust pre-formed block manufactured from Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) with a hollow core, which is filled with concrete during construction. The systems enable fast and easy installation on site, bringing the advantages of very high insulation levels, elimination of thermal bridging, air tightness, moisture and mould resistance and acoustic insulation. When used together the JACKON systems can achieve u-values of 0.15 or even lower on insulated slabs and external walls – JACKON is 100% ready for the Future Homes Standard! The products have BBA approval and Passivhaus certification, as well as mortgage, insurance and planning acceptance.
