Hunton Bitroc provides space solution

Bett Residential homes choose Hunton Fiber products for use in two private housing developments in the Glasgow area.

Hunton Bitroc was used as a high performance structural sheathing board on the luxury apartments at Lochview, Gartcosh and villas at Kingspark, Paisley.
Timber frame manufacturers Walker Timber, Bo’ness were asked to provide a solution to achieving the U-Values required in Scotland, but without resorting to expensive insulation materials or large wall depths.

Using the enhanced thermal benefits of 22mm Hunton Bitroc as their timber frame sheathing, they were able to meet the Scottish U-Value regulations of 0.3 W/m²K in the walls using just 114mm of standard insulation quilt. This provided Bett Residential with warm, sustainable homes and the added bonus that they were able to maximise the habitable space within a given foundation footprint.

Hunton Bitroc is a high quality weather resistant sheathing board with excellent racking and thermal properties for use in timber frame construction. It is BBA certified and NHBC approved, making it the ideal choice of material for timber frame construction.
