With the introduction of the new NZEB requirement, Timber frame offers excellent thermal efficiency, low thermal bridging and excellent air tightness which is why it is becoming an increasingly popular choice in order to meet the requirements of NZEB.
Timber Frame has always been at the forefront of thermal efficiency and modern hybrid wall systems have insulation and air tightness membranes factory fitted. Typically timber wall panels U Values range from Passive to 0.15W/m2K.
In addition the detailing of timber fame systems allow for reduced thermal bridging and corresponding PSI values. This allows BER assessors to calculate and apply enhanced Y Values which will provide better Energy Performance Rating.
