Some of our Offices and Rooms with Aerogel have the greatest insulation value of any material in the world and considerably better than The UK Building Regulations which suggest target u-values for an Insulated garden office.
In short U-values are the unit of measurement used to determine thermal performance. The lower the u-value, the better performing the insulated garden office.
This level of insulation in a garden office will also help you in the summer when the hot air outside is trying to get into your room. The insulation simply blocks the movement, helping to you to keep your office cool and comfortable.
This is true for some of our contemporary offices that have large window walls as we go to great lengths to ensure they are high quality double glazed units the conform to Building regulation minimum standards of 1.6W/mk
Apart from Areogel we tend to specify Rigid PIR insulation as it has a good u values without being too thick.
These top of the range polyurethane inserts are faced with foil to give you the best protection from the elements and form an important part of our insulated garden office panels
From experience its false economy to scrimp on something as important as insulation as it’s not unusual for most parts of the country to experience -5 in the winter or 28oC in the summer
