Foamed glass (recycled)as insulation
Foam Glass Aggregate is an insulation material for underground use. Recycled foam glass aggregate saves energy and also contributes to a comfortable indoor environment. It is light weight, load bearing, draining, and insulating. It is a high quality foamed glass gravel made from 100% recycled glass.
lime & Hemp
One of the strongest natural fibres, is a natural and renewable material, with a fast growing season (up to 3 meters in 4 months), and potential for 3 harvests per annum, the processing of which is non toxic, with low environmental impact. The hemp plant produces multiple resources including oils for foods and cosmetics but the ‘shiv’—typically a waste product—is an ideal material for a bio aggregate with a low embodied energy value compared to gravel based aggregates.
lime & Hemp.
In addition to the excellent properties of each material, both of which have attractive environmental features, the material synergy between hemp and lime is excellent. When used in timber frame the wood provides load bearing capacity, the hemp acts as a bio aggregate—which like the wood gives further carbon sequestration—and the lime acts as a binder, which also protects the bio elements via its high PH level, thus avoiding the need for timber preservatives. Indeed it is this enabling capacity of the lime that is pivotal to the successful combination and facilitates the use of hemp, which replaces a gravel based aggregate, using the ‘shiv’ waste of the hemp product, which being a bio material significantly increases the volume of carbon stored in the construction, one of its unique environmental benefits.
Lime hemp construction also presents important vapour permeable and hygroscopic properties, ensuring that constructions can be breathable. The lime can also provide protection to timber members, thus avoiding toxic chemical treatment, and lime hemp is also fire and vermin resistant.

GUTEX Thermoroom interior insulation system
Thanks to wood fibre’s excellent inherent qualities, GUTEX’s ecological interior insulation system creates wholesome living spaces with a comfortable indoor climate. Interior insulation is a consideration particularly for buildings for which exterior insulation is not possible or ill advised due to the historical significance or listing of a building. The advantages offered by interior insulation include the absence of scaffolding, insusceptibility of work to weather and the possibility to retrofit buildings gradually, one space, room or apartment at a time.
Window Integration System
Obtaining reliably tight joints in ETIC systems usually is a formidable challenge. And the performance of the entire system depends on the tightness of the joints. Window joints, however, are particularly complex and critical. Typically, windows are a building element where up to four different tradespersons are likely to be in play, including window contractors/architectural blinds installers, facade builders, plasterers, tinsmiths or stonemasons. This increases the potential of failure in what is already building envelopes’ weakest member. GUTEX Implio a precision-engineered integral system with quality-built components, leaves nothing to chance.
