Open Panel Systems

Traditional timber frame uses an open panel system for the external walls. The panels are typically made from a softwood timber frame and sheathed in the factory with structural sheet material, such as plywood or oriented strand board (OSB). A reflective water tight, yet breathable, membrane is factory fitted on the outside panel face and left open on the inside (hence the name).

The insulation which is fitted within the panels is installed on-site once the panels have been erected and the services roughed in following which the plasterboard is site fitted.

Closed Panel Systems

Val-U-Therm PLUS®, our closed panel system has both sides of the external wall panels sheathed in the factory with structural sheet material such as plywood or oriented strand board (OSB). The internal void left is then high pressure injected in the factory with a high performance PU insulation. A reflective water-tight, yet breathable, membrane is factory fitted on the outside panel face. A reflective vapour control layer and service zone battens are factory fitted on the inside face which ensures a very good level of air tightness. Once the services are roughed in within the service zone provided, the plasterboard is site fitted. We also offer the option for doors and windows to be factory fitted.
