What is a Cavity Wall?
A cavity wall is made up of two walls with a gap in between, known as the cavity; the outer layer is usually made of brick and the inner layer of brick or concrete block. Metal ties join the two walls together. Pre-1920 and older houses are more likely to have solid walls. A solid wall has no cavity; each wall is a single solid wall, usually made of brick or stone. Our Surveyor can identify this during the survey inspection, and if necessary we can carry out a boroscope check on your wall and put a camera inside it to see if your home is suitable for cavity wall insulation in Kirkwall.
Cavity wall insulation is an insulating material which is placed in the gap between the inner and outer wall of your property, making it more energy-efficient. Our preferred insulating material is a bonded EPS bead system due to its durability, low thermal conductivity and moisture resistance. Our Kirkwall cavity wall insulation team will be sure to keep you involved in every step of the process. If you have any questions along the way, please do not hesitate to speak to our Kirkwall team.

What is EPS
EPS is a lightweight cellular material consisting of fine spherical shaped particles which are 98% air and 2% polystyrene. This expandable polystyrene is a rigid cellular plastic containing an expansion agent called pentane. It has low thermal conductivity, which makes the material have a long term R-value, meaning it is resistant to heat flow and an ideal product for thermal insulation. Low Water Absorption: EPS bead does not absorb moisture and its thermal properties are not affected by damp, humidity or moisture. Its closed-cell means it cannot absorb water and the bead will maintain its shape, size, structure and appearance. We ensure the EPS will materials will last as long as the structure will.
