Welcoming the award, Keystone Lintels said that the Hi-therm+ lintel offers a low-cost solution to reduced carbon emissions and is up to five times more thermally efficient than a standard steel lintel.
The company said it had re-engineered its original Hi-therm lintel utilising its industry leading ‘top hat’ design to offer even greater practicality to builders.
Kris Willis, Keystone’s national sales manager for Ireland, collected the award at the ceremony which took place on Thursday 14 June, in the Citywest Hotel in Dublin.
He commented: “At Keystone, we recognise the challenges facing builders in relation to thermal performance and sustainability. A fabric-first solution is preferable to builders, particularly something that is easily installed, maintenance-free and can allow them to meet regulations in a cost-efficient way.
“The use of Hi-therm+ with its low psi value will often negate the need for bolt on renewables saving money on the overall build. We launched Hi-therm+ in January this year and are delighted to have achieved this accolade.”
Since launching in 2014, the Irish Construction Industry Awards has established itself as the benchmark for those demonstrating excellence and innovation in Ireland’s construction Industry.
