SYTEX FoamStone is kind to the environment as well.
Being only a fraction of the weight of conventional materials it requires less energy to transport and install.
The SYTEX finish also consumes a fraction of the natural resources associated with conventional materials.
The high density EPS at the core of SYTEX FoamStone does not contain CFC’s, HFC’s of fibre.
It has an extremely low GWP (Global Warming Potential) which for the purposes of BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) and the CODE (Code for Sustainable Home Building Practice) a GWP of less than 5 should be used.
Our EPS has been given an A+ rating (the highest obtainable) by the BRE ‘Green Guide’ to housing specification.
It is self extinguishing and is not noxious.
Waste from manufacture is recycled into flooring insulation panels further improving SYTEX's green credentials.
