Concept G wall panels

A well-insulated home is equivalent to dressing appropriately according to the temperature: an umbrella when it is rainy, a hat in winter. We must, thus, dress our home suitably in order to live comfortably.


ProGression Homes has developed a high energy efficient prefabricated wall panel so that your home will be weatherproof as well as well-insulated and ventilated.


Guaranteed comfort and security!
Characteristics

  •  Light-weight panel, quick and easy installation, two people can assemble a house in only one day
  • Panels are more sturdy than traditional walls
  • 20-year transferable warranty on the thermal value of the panel

                                                                     

High energy efficient ceiling

ProGression Homes uses an expanded polystyrene sheet in order to properly insulate the ceiling of your kit home.

Characteristics

  • Quick and easy to install
  • Light-weight and easy to cut
  • Durable,  mould and rot resistant
  • Offers the highest R-value (unit of measure for insulation) per dollar invested versus other insulations
  • A R-45.41 insulation value
  • Possibility of obtaining certification (LEED) for environmental projects
  • More rigid than a standard vapour barrier, eliminating subsidence of insulation in the attic and maintaining airflow intact
  • A reflective and stratified vapour barrier is laminated to the inner surface of the insulation panel and a sealing tape is applied to protect the joints.
  • No need to add a top plate to maintain regular ceiling height
  • 20 year transferable warranty on the thermal value of the panels

   


Low-E argon doors and windows  

In a traditional house, heat loss through windows represents 25% to 35% of the total loss. Therefore, special attention must be paid to this factor. ENERGY STAR qualified, the doors and windows installed on your kit home are Low-E argon and conform to the highest standards.


What does this mean?


Low-E refers to low emission. Low-E is a film that is applied to the glass, reducing ultra-violet rays by 33%, decreasing thermal loss.


Argon is a neutral gas that is less conductive and weightier than air. Therefore, since it is not conductive, a more efficient thermal glass is produced than one using air.


In short, Low-E argon offers a clear vision and adapts to outdoor temperature. In colder conditions, the insulation value is up to 50% greater than regular glass. In warmer conditions, the opposite effect is created by blocking sunrays.

 This open web wood floor joist satisfies the two most important criteria of modern residential and commercial construction::

1) It offers the greatest adjustability possible.
2) It contains adequate space to accommodate air ducts, electrical wiring and plumbing

In fact, the joist length can be adjusted by cutting up to 2 feet off the ends without any danger of weakening the joist.

The open web truss section is located in the centre of the span, with wooden diagonals for superior sturdiness. It offers much greater flexibility for accommodating air ducts, electrical wiring and plumbing.

This performing system assures silent flooring and meets the requirements regarding reduced vibration criter
