Student Development Features XPERi Basement Insulation

Student Accommodation featuring XPERi Insulation

A new student accommodation development in Bournemouth features Cellecta’s HEXATHERM XPERi Insulation boards. As a super strong perimeter wall insulation board featuring excellent water resistance, XPERi was identified as the ideal basement insulation solution.

Located close to Bournemouth’s stunning beaches and vibrant town, the 8 storey block ASN Capital development will feature 84 studios to house students from Autumn 2015. 210 boards of HEXATHERM XPERi have been installed around the buildings basement perimeter, where a common room and cafe area will be located.

XPERi represents the ideal solution for this application thanks to the boards closed cell properties, which are super resistant to water in an underground/basement area that is typically prone to moisture. In this application XPERi‘s high compressive strength properties are highly effective at retaining surrounding soil and potential ground movements.

Basement Insulation


Basement Insulation

HEXATHERM insulation boards are ideal for basement applications. The insulation Boards are manufactured from extruded polystyrene and feature high compressive strength, a closed cell structure ensuring high water resistance and excellent thermal performance. A variety of grades (250 to 700kPa) are available to suit different loading conditions and applications.

All grades of basement insulation have excellent life-long thermal performance and very low water absorption, allowing them to be installed above or below the dpm. Cellecta extruded polystyrene basement insulation boards are 100% recyclable, with HEXATHERM boards also having a <5 GWP, making them fully compliant with CSH Pol 1 requirements.
