Last December, Part B (Fire safety) of the Building Regulations (England and Wales) banned the use of combustible materials in certain build-ups, such as rainscreen façade systems, of residential buildings between 11m and 18m.

Zentia, a UK leader in complete ceiling solutions, is pleased to announce the renaming of its brightest and whitest tile, Ultima+.

The updated Part L (Conservation of fuel and power) Building Regulations for England came into full force this June and there’s a lot for the housebuilding industry to adapt to.

Showing a strong commitment to both sustainability and supply chain collaboration, leading insulation, drywall and ceiling product distributor CCF has joined forces with Knauf Insulation to identify some of the most common issues surrounding meeting Part L and achieving lower U-values to understand how best to support customers through changing regulations.

With common openings in external cavity walls supported by lintels of metal, concrete, stone or timber, the opportunity exists to offset the evacuation of penetrating rain so discharge is not in the vicinity of the opening.

Congratulations are in order for Zentia, one of the UK’s leaders in complete ceiling solutions, for being announced as the Grand Final Winner of the Made in Britain Awards 2023, a category within the North East Business Awards.

Catherine Gibson, managing director of leading insulation, drywall and ceiling product distributor CCF has lent her voice to the important discussion of product traceability following a guest speaker appearance at UK Construction Week.

The new carbon reporting tool that is currently being trialled by insulation, drywall and ceiling product distributors CCF is one of the key initiatives that has helped parent company Travis Perkins plc secure a prestigious award win.

Zentia, a leading manufacturer of innovative ceiling solutions, is delighted to announce two exciting product updates. The highly anticipated Aruba Triangle range takes it debut, and 35 new colours are introduced to the existing Aruba family.
