As demand reportedly grows for Actis’ honeycomb insulation Hybris, the company has announced it has invested in a state-of-the-art machine which can produce the material four times faster than its predecessor.
The 2,000 sq m plant has been built at the company’s headquarters in South West France and will cater for the British and European markets.
Actis UK and Ireland Sales Director, Mark Cooper, said: “Our original Hybris machine was pretty impressive, and now the growth in its popularity means we have made a significant investment into a second generation plant. Its increased manufacturing capacity will enable us to meet current and future demand.”
CE marked Hybris and its three sister products, insulating vapour control layer HControl Hybrid and insulating breather membranes, Boost R Hybrid and Boost R Hybrid Roof, have LABC and LABSS registered detail. They are also accepted by the LABC, Premier Guarantee and the NHBC when used in accordance with certification.
The products can also help to eliminate thermal bridging due to their ability to squash into gaps and wrap around corners.
Mark added: “Architects, specifiers and builders choose Hybris because not only does it achieve impressive thermal performance, it is quick, clean and easy to use, produces very little waste and is light and easy to carry.”
