The Actis Hybrid insulation range, which is already approved by the NHBC, has added two further warranty providers to its accreditations.
The three products in the range – honeycomb insulation Hybris, insulating vapour control layer HControl Hybrid and insulating breather membrane Boost’R Hybrid – have all been accepted by both the LABC and Premier Guarantee.
The acceptance means all products will be accepted, when used according to the certification, by builders, specifiers and architects using the new-build warranties issued by the NHBC, LABC or Premier Guarantee. All three warranties offer 10 years’ protection for new homeowners against structural defects.
The NHBC Buildmark warranty covers around 80% of new and newly-converted homes in the UK. The CE marked Actis Hybris products also have LABC registered details and LABSS accreditation, which means they can be automatically accepted by all local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales.
Actis UK and Ireland Technical Director Thomas Wiedmer explained: “Actis Hybrid products have had NHBC acceptance, LABC and LABSS registered details for some time. We have been increasingly asked whether we comply with other new-build warranty providers and, while the NHBC is the best known and most commonly used, 20% of new homes are covered by different providers. This new stamp of approval will make it even easier for builders to obtain easy acceptance and be confident that Actis Hybrid products are fully compliant.”
