Innovation in a Chilly Climate: New Partnership to Provide Revolutionary Insulation Product

Two innovative Irish companies have entered into a partnership to provide a new generation cost effective and energy efficient solution for domestic and commercial buildings. Permafix Environmental is an established company, based in Cork and is Ireland’s most experienced company for airtightness and Insulation installation for domestic and commercial buildings. Recent projects include the National Conference Centre, St. Vincent’s Private Hospital and Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport.Protherm Thermal Insulation Solutions is a newly formed Irish company providing innovative lightweight thermal insulation solutions for interior and exterior applications responding to an ever increasing appetite for energy efficient upgrades. Protherm’s ECAP External Wall Insulation system is the very first pre-finished external insulation panel in Ireland which is 50% faster to install and therefore less susceptible to rain enforced delays.The ECAP External Insulation System is a cost effective and energy-efficient solution that insulates buildings from the outside. Insulation is more cost-effective when placed on the outside of a building, as it keeps the thermal mass of the concrete walls within the building envelope. The system is very popular in retro fitting insulation solutions for older properties. It means that your walls will act as a thermal store by absorbing heat during the day and slowly releasing it at night.In partnership together Permafix Envirinmental and Protherm Thermal Insulation Solutions can provide and install the ECAP External Insulation System, the most advanced external insulation system available to commercial and domestic buildings throughout Munster. Both companies are approved by the NSAI for insulation, which is essential for the claiming of grants of up to 4,000 under the Home Energy Government Scheme.In a further positive benefit of this partnership, both companies combined will create 11 new jobs initially with a further 22 in 2011.Commenting on the partnership Chris Barry, Managing Director of Permafix Environmental said “The partnership enables us to provide the very best in energy cost saving solutions, in particular to older buildings in a very efficient and low cost manner. It is a great time to invest in your home or building with the generous grants that are available”.Joanna Murphy, a former contestant on TV3’s ‘The Apprentice’ is the Managing Director of Protherm Thermal Insulation Solutions. She comments “Protherm is tackling the recession head on.  We will begin the manufacture of this next generation external insulation system here in Ireland in Janauray 2011 which will create new employment and utilise the huge skills base that exists in Ireland.  We believe that is the very best time to start a business.  Our product has been awarded innovative product of the year and our business is an Enterprise Ireland High Potential Start up.  With partners such as Permafix, we feel, the only way is up”.For further information on the ECAP External Wall Insulation system visit
