Cavity Wall Insulation

Cross section of house walls.  More heat is lost through the walls of a house than through any other part of the building envelope.  Cavity Wall Insulation is one of the most cost-effective energy efficiency measures for the home.
Cavity wall insulation involves the injection of a suitable insulant, using a specified and approved system designed to ensure a complete fill of the cavity wall area.

Bonded Bead Cavity Wall Insulation

Approximately 25% of heat is lost through the walls of a house. More heat is lost through the walls of a house than through any other part of the building envelope. Cavity Wall Insulation is one of the most cost-effective energy efficiency measures in the home.

Composition & Durability

The polystyrene used for Cavity Wall Insulation is in the form of virgin pre-formed bead. The bead is combined with a binding agent or adhesive at the time of injection. Polystyrene bead are produced to a specified size and density which remains unaltered during the installation process.

The materials are produced under strict quality control to ensure compliance with the performance requirement of the Irish Agrément Board.

The installation must be carried out in accordance with the relevant IAB Certificate, their surveillance scheme, the System Suppliers installation Manual and to best practice.

Once installed, the bead filling in the cavity will remain an effective insulant for the life of the building and will require no further maintenance.
KORE Fill  - is a bonded bead, complete cavity wall fill insulation system for application in new and existing buildings.








Our Tip: Do not block vents with insulation, and keep insulation at least 3 inches away from recessed lighting fixtures.
