Update: The BIM v2.0-2018 Building Insulation Materials standard has now superseded GECA 33-2007 Thermal Building Insulation Materials.
High quality thermal insulation plays a vital role in the energy efficiency of a building. Reducing heating and cooling requirements means reduced greenhouse gas emissions, as well as improving indoor comfort levels, keeping surfaces cool in summer but warm during winter. However, the manufacture of insulation products can have negative environmental impacts depending on the processes involved.
Products covered by the standard include bulk insulation materials used in building applications, namely resistive-type boards, blankets, batts and loose-fill or spray-on thermal insulation.
GECA certified products are now available on a new platform that will save architects and other building professionals thousands of hours searching the right products for their projects. The Building Products Information Rating provides information on the compliance, performance, resilience and sustainability of building products and the companies producing them.Read More See all news
