The INSULMAX Retrofit Wall Insulation Method is a controlled design method for creating plans and specifications for a building consent to install INSULMAX in the walls of existing buildings.
INSULMAX insulation is a soft, white blown mineral insulation material that achieves an R value of 2.5-2.8/100mm.
The controlled design method includes a prescribed method for assessing the existing building and identifying any work that must be done prior to the installation of INSULMAX insulation, in order for the requirements of s112 of the Building Act 2004 to be met. The report that is produced as a result of this evaluation must be provided to the BCA as part of the building consent application.
The INSULMAX Retrofit Wall Insulation Method also provides a declaration on completion of the work that the “Work Required” identified on the INSULMAX existing building assessment report has been undertaken and the building work has been completed in accordance with the building consent. For clarity, certification covers the controlled design method and the INSULMAX Insulation building material.
The INSULMAX Retrofit Wall Insulation Method may also be used to support an application for exemption from building consent under Schedule 1 s2 of the Building Act 2004.
This certificate covers the retrofitting of INSULMAX® wall insulation in all existing buildings subject to the completion of the Insulmax Existing Building Assessment.
