Insulation for Timber Frame Wall
U-value CalculatorStart your U-value calculation >
An increasingly popular way of constructing new-build dwellings is to use a timber framed construction rather than traditional masonry cavity wall construction. Building with timber framed construction can offer a number of advantages and benefits over building with a more traditional form of construction, such as lighter weight and a higher speed of construction.
In a timber-framed wall insulation is typically installed between the studs, this insulation can be PIR or glass mineral wool (GMW). Depending on U-value requirements there may be additional insulation required, this might be placed outside the sheathing board (i.e. within the external wall cavity) or internally on the warm side of the studwork.
