Thermaloc® Thermal Insulation Systems

Thermaloc is a structurally insulated building system that combines the strength of Supaloc steel framing with the outstanding thermal properties of rigid cellular insulation. It is an affordable, high performance building technology that delivers proven results in premium, low energy usage, sustainable homes.

Acoustically Absorbant

One of the key benefits of the Thermaloc system is the significant reduction in “drumming” often associated with elevated floor systems.

This describes the dissatisfying noisy echo that accompanies footfall, speech or music in homes.  When moulded into the Supaloc frames, the insulating material absorbs sound reverberation, providing an enhanced level of acoustic comfort in your home.

Flexible Design

Thermaloc’s superb insulating qualities means that our buildings perform extremely well in ratings tools like AccuRate, which means greater design flexibility in terms of window size and placement in your home.

Moisture Resistant

Thermaloc rigid cellular insulation is vapour permeable, but moisture resistant.

The Thermaloc system allows your home to breathe, but has been designed to eliminate the risk of condensation between wall ceiling cavities and the need for a vapour barrier*.

The result is a hybrid frame construction method which not only guarantees the long-term durability of the steel structure but ensures that the insulation does not break down over time due to moisture ingress.

Advantages

Energy Efficient

Thermaloc’s rigid cellular insulation provides outstanding thermal qualities. In plain terms, this means that you will need substantially less heating and cooling to maintain a comfortable temperature inside your Thermaloc home.

Energy savings based on Thermaloc performance compared to standard construction building. 55% reduction in energy consumption based on peak loading during Summer 2010/11, as collated during tests overseen by Dr Martin Belusko, Barbara Hardy Institute Sustainable Energy Centre, University of South Australia. Test results reviewed in Determining the Energy Efficiency of the Thermaloc Building System by Dr Martin Belusko, April 2011.

As American utility bills continue to rise, the reduction in energy required to heat and cool a Thermaloc home will translate into considerable cost savings on a weekly, monthly and annual basis.

Comfortable

A well insulated home is a comfortable home. Thermaloc has superior insulating properties, with no thermal bridging, no cavities and no air gaps.

A house that keeps warmth inside in winter and the heat outside in summer feels pleasant. You and your family can enjoy the comfort of your home secure in the knowledge that your Thermaloc building system is working hard to reduce your energy consumption all year round.

Dimensionally Stable

Traditional building methods require insulation to be hand filled into wall cavities during the building process.  This is a low skilled technique which is open to human error and therefore inconsistency.

The Thermaloc pre-insulation manufacturing technology guarantees 100% optimum performance for the life of your home.

Unlike fibre batts insulation, which compresses over time, leaving gaps, Thermaloc is a solid, cellular material that will not breakdown or collapse over the life of the product.
