Ecuyer Thatchers – Cross Green Court

Cross Green Court - TAS100 Thatch Fireboard

Thatching Advisory Services have supplied a number of their TAS100 Thatch Fireboards for a new project being carried out by Daniel Ecuyer.

In addition to the TAS100 Thatch Fireboards, the 260m² roof in Suffolk will also have specially manufactured 600mm Thatchbatts® placed between the roof timbers on the underside of the roof structure. The Thatchbatts® when used with the TAS100 Thatch Fireboards, make up a comprehensive Thatch Fire Protection system.

Prior to the project starting, Thatching Advisory Services were able to provide Daniel with a comprehensive U-Value and Condensation Risk Analysis report based on all products included in the overall roof structure.
