SIG360 PROVIDES ENERGY EFFICIENCY SOLUTION FOR LUXURY SOMERSET DEVELOPMENT

SIG360 PROVIDES ENERGY EFFICIENCY SOLUTION FOR LUXURY SOMERSET DEVELOPMENT


The SIG360 Technical Centre, a specialist offering by SIG Insulation in providing energy efficiency and building expertise for new build and retrofit projects, has provided cost saving solutions for a luxury residential development in Somerset. Appointed to the project by Boss Development, SIG360 was tasked with ensuring the project met all of the thermal and acoustic requirements of Part L and Part E the Building Regulations 2013. To keep costs to a minimum, SIG360 was able to reduce the cavity wall insulation thickness from 90mm to 75mm by specifying higher performance cavity wall insulation that would still meet the required U-values. SIG360 were also specified a cavity protection system for the insulation, removing the need for a backing block behind the building’s original stonework, saving costs while providing additional space. To ensure the building meets Part E, the technical experts specified Regupol acoustic flooring material to be installed below the screed.

INTRODUCING THE NEW AEG MAXI SENSE  COMBI HOB WITH FREEZONE


AEG's new MaxiSense Combi HKH81700FB hob features pioneering cutting edge technology that mimics the fingertip control a professional chef would expect. A highlight of this particular hob is its FreeZone. This is effectively a ’chef’s hot plate’ allowing you to move up to three pans around the one zone. This H47xW30cm FreeZone comes complete with automatic pan detection, meaning that you can simply place a pot anywhere on this area and the hob will identify where it is and how big it is. By pre-programing the required temperature for each pan, you can move it around the hob as you please and the temperature setting moves with the pan, giving you complete flexibility. The FreeZone’s area can also be split into two sections set at different cooking temperatures, offering more versatility than ever before, along with the ability to fit up to 5 pans on the hob at once for exceptional cooking capacity.
