UNILIN SIPs have a rigid PIR core, manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP). The very low thermal conductivity (lambda value 0,023 W/mK) of our panels allows for the achievement of low U-values with minimum insulation thickness.
-All panels have the necessary certificates, technical approvals and are supplied with a lifetime expectancy.
-Sustainability is a vital concept for all future buildings in the UK. The term can be used to describe many aspects of the procurement process, from initial design right though to how materials are disposed of at the building's end of life. As a large international company we have a responsibility not only to our shareholders but to our people and the environment. We take this seriously and you are more than welcome to read our environmental policies pertaining to our products and our company in general. The company is committed to reducing its carbon footprint in all its operations and is striving to become a great example in the construction materials industry of how to be profitable and environmentally sound.
The issue of embodied carbon and carbon emissions is becoming a driver for new legislation coming into force over the next few years. We have no doubt that the use of Whole life Cycle Costings and other environmental metrics will become more important than they currently are. The aim for carbon neutral buildings and zero emission through Europe in the next decade will usher in a permanent change in the UK. This is the challenge we all face. UNILIN will be the supply partner of choice for those construction companies and clients who are ready to change now.
