Cavity Wall Insulation
Benefiting from the excellent thermal values of EPS, Ecobead Platinum is a full fill cavity wall insulation supplied by a network of approved installers, quick and easy without any waste.
Ecobead Platinum is a high performance, blown in EPS bead with adhesive, typically used in external masonry walls up to and including 12 metres in height, with nominal cavity width of not less than 50mm, in new and existing domestic and non-domestic buildings.
Ecobead may be used in buildings above 12 metres in height subject to certain restrictions. Please contact Springvale Technical for further details and click here to view the Agrement certificate.

ECOBEAD® PLATINUM® Cavity Wall Insulation
Benefiting from the excellent environmental aspects of EPS it is installed by approved installers, is fast to install with no waste, and is suitable for improving the thermal performance by making substantial contributions to reducing CO2 emissions and improved energy efficiency of both new build and existing buildings.
The EPS beads are blown into the wall with a specially designed adhesive to hold the bead together inside the cavity providing a full fill insulation solution. The unique flow of bead coupled with its lightness enables the insulation to fill the smallest spaces ensuring all possible areas are filled.
