Magply magnesium oxysulfate (MOS) boards have recently undergone a stringent testing programme by the British Board of Agrément (BBA), which helps clients validate their processes and mitigate risk offering greater confidence for specifiers of the products tested.

100 years ago in the 1920’s, a West-Country family of builders started fabricating ‘damp courses and other devices to allay the fears of the unpredictable and volatile English climate.’ The Company is now called Cavity Trays Ltd and the Company continues to specialise in keeping the building envelope dry.

Premium ice cream brand Mackie’s of Scotland has taken another step towards its goal of becoming Britain’s greenest business by installing T-FIT® high-performance insulation on the family farm in Westertown, Aberdeenshire, where it produces over 13 million litres of ice cream annually.

A significant new high-rise residential project in the London Borough of Lewisham is being built to provide high quality social housing, with the design of the structure prioritising the use of non-combustible materials: including the choice of A1 rated Magply boards for pattresses within the external walls.

Both are regional terms used to describe a deviance in level between the two skins of a cavity wall. According to textbooks they should not occur, as every three bricks laid in the outer leaf should match the height of one block laid on the inside skin.

Improved levels of acoustic and energy insulation will be provided following specification of ISO-Chemie’s advanced window sealing tape for a new eco-designed residential development in Yorkshire.

Design and specify effective high rise structures with the new sector guide, ‘ROCKWOOL for High Rise Residential Projects’.
