With Ecotek your house will gain
extra floor space.
The Kingspan TEK Building System gives you more floor space for the same external dimensions.
The Kingspan TEK wall can achieve a U-value of 0.18 W/m²K and can be as little as 194.5mm thick.
In comparison a full fill masonry cavity wall to achieve the same U-value will have to have a wall 405 mm thick. (180 mm rock wool full fill / 100 mm dense block / 12.5 mm plasterboard on dabs).
A timber frame wall to achieve the same U-value will have to have a wall 448mm thick (breather membrane / 12 mm OSB / 270 mm glass fibre quilt between 270 mm studs / 12.5 mm vapour check plasterboard on dabs).
Kingspan TEK Building System
Floor space, throughout house: 146.30m²
Masonry Full Fill Cavity Wall
Wall thickness 405 mm
Floor space, throughout house: 132.15m²
Timber Frame Wall Frame Wall
Floor space, throughout house: 129.35m²
Thus in this example, with the TEK Building System you achieve:
- 14.15m² more useable floor space in comparison with a house built with masonry full fill cavity walls
- 16.95m² more useable floor space in comparison with a house built with timber frame walls of the same external dimensions and U-value (0.18 W/m²K)
