REQUEST from France, reference: BRFR20191125001, valid from 26-11-2019 untill 05-12-2020

  • Start date:
    26 november 2019
  • End date:
    5 december 2020 (over 11 dagen)
  • Summary:
    Providing insulation solutions since more than 20 years, the French company deploys its great expertise to find optimised thermical options for a construction or a renovation project.
    The SME mainly works on noise and thermical insulation in attics, walls and garages.
    In order to provide its solutions to the market, the company purchases glass and rock wool. Since these products are not always available, the SME is looking for a EU certified provider to work under supplier agreement.
  • Description:
    The company is recognised by the French government as an advocate for environmental friendly solutions in the construction sector.
    Being ISO certified, the SME provides insulation services for private housing, companies and public building.
    The company works only with innovative and performant materials in order to provide efficient and value adding solutions.
    The SME therefore use following materials in their construction and renovation project:
    - Cork
    - Wool including glass wool and rock wool
    - Cotton Wool
    - wood fiber

    For an optimised sound and thermical solutions, the company works on installation based on glass and rock wools which present strong advantages and innovation.
    Glass wool is naturally a not combustible material with no diffusion of toxic fumes when it gets dismantled. It is also considered as a non hydrophil material which limits water infiltration.Glass wool represents the best ration performance/price on the market.
    Rock wool is naturally not combustible as well. This material resists to humidity since it is hydrophobic with no water penetrating its structure. Termites can also not disseminate in rock wool.

    In order to install these materials, the company blows them within attics and adapt their thickness as per the client's or the building's requirements.

    Both materials are rather rare to find on the market especially in France and this can lead to production disruption. The company is therefore willing not to create any bottlecneck in its supply chain and be able to provide their client with a continuous service.

    In this sense the company is looking for providers of both raw materials in order to continue offering energy efficient and environmentaly friendly solutions to its clients.

  • Advantages and Innovations:
    Insulation conceived with glass and rock wool is innovative compared to the common insulation solutions.
    It represents several advantages such as:

    - A porus structure which allows to capture air cells and stop them from their diffusion
    - An elastic structure absorb airborne and choc sounds
    - More energy efficient - with 25% of economies
    - Endeavor circular economy through the re use of vegetal and animal materials
    - Environmental friendly
    - Installations based on these materials can benefit from incentive funding programs at national level
