TECHNICAL INFORMATION on EPS POLYSTYRENE as INSULATION - The thermal envelope to keep energy inside longer.
HIGH INSULATION is the key to ENERGY EFFICIENCY!
The "Cornerstone Building System" with R Values at least twice the New Zealand Building Code Standards is central and sets us apart from other home companies.
With "insulation being the "key" to achieving the most energy efficient structure" it is the most effective way to save the environment when used in the construction of buildings as many Life cycle analysis have proven. See below properties of EPS.
EPS polystyrene is made up of 2% matter a polymar formed on the manufacture of oil, which is also available in wood waste, even orange peel. It is expanded with steam producing round beads of air. The system is 90% polystyrene & 10% reinforced concrete post & beam which is packaged in the polystyrene. This is a technology which can definitely make a difference to the environment in many ways.
Cornerstone’s Ecofloor The “Thermaflor”© was designed to compliment the Cornerstone Structural Insulated Panel system dependant on the level of insulation as to what the outcome of the R value.
