Noxite Air-purifying Roofing Membranes

Noxite® is a smart sustainable construction material that reverses NOx particle air pollution and provides a cleaner, healthier environment around the home. For commercial builders, it can also have an immediate impact on reducing the environmental impact of a building over its lifetime in a way that is socially and economically responsible and environmentally sustainable.

Noxite® torch-on roofing membranes use the sun’s rays to produce an autocatalytic reaction that turns harmful nitrous oxides into benign nitrates. The resulting depolluting effect is permanent, throughout the life of the waterproofing membrane.
Noxite can be applied to all roof constructions: flat and sloping roofs, new build and refurbishment projects.

Sun-Activ White Reflective Bituminous Waterproofing Membrane for Cool Roofs

The Sun-Activ® membrane is a bituminous waterproofing cap sheet with a highly reflective, smooth white surface. It is designed to comply with the cool roof concept that gains more importance as the demand for energy efficiency and environmental awareness increases.

SunActiv-PenguinsThe Sun-Activ® membrane is especially beneficial for use on new or refurbished roofs:

  • With solar panel installations
  • With a low amount of thermal insulation
  • With a high amount of internal heat generation
  • With air-cooling systems 

These are mostly offices and public institutions such as schools and hospitals, residential buildings and industrial premises.

A cool roof efficiently reflects sunlight and keeps its surface cool by re-radiating the sun’s heat back to its surroundings. The roof temperature stays lower, therefore the amount of heat conducted into the building below decreases.

Therm’X Insulating & Reflective Breather Membrane for Pitched Roofs

Therm’X is an innovative, insulating, high vapour permeable pitched roof membrane with reflective surfaces that helps improve internal building comfort and performance whilst saving energy.
Research shows that Therm’X can provide a reduction of radiant summer heat between 4-9oC therefore positively contributing to maintaining internal building comfort levels.

Therm’X is made from a highly reflective top breather membrane, a polyester matt for complementary insulation and a reinforced reflective underside which is mechanically interlocked with the polyester matt.
The huge benefit of Therm’X is the three-in-one product you get from functioning as a traditional breather membrane, with superior mechanical strength, a reflective outer surface to limit solar gain in summer and an inner reflective side to increase U-value performance in winter.

Cool Roof Paint

Cool Roof Paint renovation coating is a water based acrylic polymer binder that reflects the warmth of the sun, so that the roof surface remains cooler and the same applies to the space below. It prolongs the life expectancy of the roof and the temperature inside becomes more pleasant. Cool Roof Paint is solvent free and weatherproof.

Dalite Rooflights - Creating Better Quality Environments with Natural Light

Natural light can dramatically improve the quality of life for anyone living or working within a building – boosting concentration, feelings of well-being and productivity. Dalite Rooflights are an ideal way to maximise the transmission of high quality, uniform, natural daylight through a flat roof into the interior, with all the benefits that daylight can deliver.

Incorporating rooflights into a flat roof can provide three times more daylight than the same area of vertical windows and provide a much more even distribution of light.

Dalite Rooflights reduce energy costs and carbon footprint as well as promoting the health benefits of natural light.

Monarfloor Acoustics

Icopal’s range of acoustic products encompasses traditional floating floor treatments, (many of which were developed by Icopal and are now universally accepted as the industry standard), through to innovative second generation systems specially developed for use in the new-build sector.

The Code for Sustainable Homes has been introduced to drive a step change in sustainable home building practice. It is a standard for key elements of design and construction which affect the sustainability of a new home and will become the single national standard for sustainable homes. The Code will be used by designers and builders as a guide to development and by home- buyers to assist in their choice of home. All of Icopal’s advanced acoustics solutions can provide an opportunity to gain either three or four Credits when used as part of a system. They can not only be cost-neutral but also provide opportunities for further savings by, for example, allowing the use of a continuous raft foundation between dwellings.
