Cavity Wall Insulation

Warmfill Silver bonded bead system utilises two basic components, a specially manufactured grade of closed cell polystyrene FRA thermal bead, which is coated with an air drying adhesive during the injection process. This special bonding agent allows the bead to flow freely until the cavity wall is completely filled.

Once the adhesive sets, the bead forms a solid, heat saving mass which will not shrink, crack, settle or be affected by the removal of outer brickwork for alterations or window replacements.

It is totally reliable and, once installed, it remains effective for the lifetime of the property without the need for any maintenance. The fact that this product is used by homeowners, house builders, local authorities, government grant schemes and the construction industry is a testimony to its proven quality and effectiveness.

The Advantage of bead insulation

The bonded beads have a unique self-drain quality which allows the cavity to breathe and remain dry.

  • The self-drain quality makes it unnecessary to fill gable peaks
  • A U. Value of 0.27 in a 100mm cavity can be achieved or better
  • Gives a noticeable fuel saving and will work for the life of the building
  • Helps to reduce the carbon footprint
  • Approved by both BBA and IAB meeting current building regulations
  • Approved for all exposure zones
  • Quick and easy to install with minimal mess
  • FRA bead (Fire Retardant Additive)
