Copyright © 2018 Insula Ltd
Insula are Architectural Engineers, market leaders in the design manufacture and installation of high performance thermal break connections and balconies.
For many years we have provided architects, building designers, structural engineers and contractors with innovative products to reduce thermal bridging and the risk of condensation were structural building elements, such as balconies, canopies, columns etc; penetrate the insulated external building fabric whilst requiring support from the internal building structure or foundations.
Since 2002 the Building Regulations Approved Document Part L (Conservation of fuel and power) requires building designers to limit heat gains and losses through the insulation layers of the building fabric. To comply with this regulation and to allow building designers to continue to incorporate balconies and canopies etc. in to their building designs, Insula Ltd have developed a range of high performance structural thermal breaks.
In conjunction with our structural thermal breaks we have designed connections that are bolted to the internal face of the thermal break and are attached to the internal building structure such as timber and concrete floors or a steel frame. We have also designed connections that are bolted to the external face of the thermal break and project beyond the external face of the building fabric and provide a fixing plate for external structural building elements. We therefore offer building designers a complete package to which their balcony and canopy designs can be installed or alternatively a balcony from our Vista View, Panorama or Louvered ranges can be installed.
Our products have been successfully installed on construction projects throughout the UK .Our expert design team are available to discuss your requirements from initial design through to installation of our products.
