InsulLiving pioneered by Bondor , Australia’s leading supplier of complete thermal building solutions will help keep homes cool and energy-efficient this summer.
Bondor InsulLiving houses are built from fully engineered insulated panels fitted together to form a thermal shell, protecting the residents from heat or cold.
Bondor general manager Geoff Marsdon says builders and homeowners across Australia have embraced the revolutionary house building system, which delivers an eight star energy rating, cheaper ongoing energy bills and year-round comfort. He adds that the thermal efficiency offered by insulated panels, along with their versatility has been largely untapped, but is emerging as a key element in the future of the built environment.
Consisting of Bondor’s InsulWall panels and SolarSpan all-in-one insulated roof and ceiling system that deflects heat and cold, the InsulLiving system capitalises on the buildability and speed of construction afforded by the insulated panels.
Bondor’s prototype InsulLiving house, built in Burpengary, Queensland, earned an ‘as designed’ energy rating of eight stars, representing great savings on energy bills.
In addition to the savings on energy consumption, InsulLiving houses offer aesthetic value and are designed for the Australian landscape.
Marsdon comments that there is no need to sacrifice on style or quality of design with InsulLiving. InsulLiving panels can be rendered, giving them the good looks and street appeal of any other modern Australian home, but with reduced energy bills for the life of the home.
InsulLiving homes can be tailored to fit all budgets, starting with a simple design when finances are tight, and growing with the family through the easy addition of further modules.
One of the most adaptable on the planet, the house building system is suited to single or double-storey designs, split level construction, studio or modular housing, and modern extensions to existing homes.
Bondor InsulLiving offers benefits such as assured spacious open plan living; high ceilings without the need for timber/steel roof trusses; new design concepts; no need for plasterboard with InsulWall’s smoother, continuous finish; impact resistant steel protecting investment; inherently low VOC emissions; minimal requirement for adhesives; external and internal walls with built-in high performing insulation at no extra cost; low maintenance with Colorbond steel pre-painted roof and ceiling finishes; termite resistance preventing expensive and dangerous structural damage; lightweight structure ideal for difficult to access or sloping blocks; and quicker build time compared to traditional frame and brick homes.
