Thermal efficiency

The considered specification of the building fabric can identify valuable energy-saving opportunities, enhancing thermal efficiency and reducing carbon emissions. Our subsidiary brand, Glidevale Protect, specialises in providing solutions for thermal efficiency that align with this fabric-first approach. This approach is set to become a core element of the Future Homes Standard, which will be implemented in 2025, and is also part of the Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) standard. By incorporating Glidevale Protect’s expertise in thermal efficiency solutions, builders and construction professionals can optimise energy performance and meet the upcoming regulatory standards effectively.

Condensation control

Condensation control is essential as buildings are increasingly designed to be more airtight and energy-efficient. Achieving the correct balance of ventilation is crucial to support occupier health and well-being. Left unchecked, the accumulation of harmful condensation can lead to mould and mildew, causing damage to interior decoration. Our subsidiary brand, Glidevale Protect, specialises in providing solutions for condensation control, ensuring optimal ventilation to maintain a healthy indoor environment while preserving the integrity of interior surfaces.
