Creating the ideal living space with MEDITE

March 2021

No longer are the places we live simply our homes: now they must also offer us the space and facilities to also be our offices, our gyms, our children’s classrooms and the places we entertain ourselves. This has inspired an unprecedented number of people to make repairs, improvements and upgrades to their homes: over 35.6% more of us, to be exact.

Unsurprisingly, a major trend for 2021 is the concept of multi-functional spaces, particularly when it comes to living rooms. Forbes indicated late last year that single purpose spaces and furnishings were becoming unfashionable because we’ve had to adapt our living spaces to accommodate the new work/life balance.

Creating a multi-functional space with bespoke furnishings to suit your needs, may sound challenging, but actually is easier than you may think. MEDITE makes it real by continuing to develop innovative, versatile and sustainable products, suitable for bespoke interior fit outs and refurbishments. The brand has now even launched a new members community of MDF enthusiasts to share their work, gain inspiration and benefit from prizes that will help facilitate bigger and better work with MDF.

How can MEDITE help you create inspiring fit outs and furnishings?

MEDITE MDF panels were used to create the perfect aesthetics for a private client in South Kensington, London, who wanted to create a bespoke art deco inspired home. The interiors were designed and created especially for the project by Infinitus Bespoke Interiors using MDF panels, including MEDITE MR, which features special moisture resistant properties.

Every room was designed to reflect the sleek opulence of the 1930s and 40s, while bringing a unique character to every space. The bedrooms and bathrooms and living areas were refitted to incorporate smooth, clean lines, high gloss surfaces, mirror cladding and ambient lighting, while the installation of a bar and cinema room further embodied the elegance of the period in this home.

Featuring a smooth surface and consistent density throughout, MEDITE MR is ideal for machining into bespoke shapes and cabinetry. As a moisture resistant MDF panel, it is also designed for use in indoor humid conditions, making it suitable for kitchen and bathroom installations, among a huge variety of others. It is also a great substitute for softwoods or hardwoods where more machining flexibility is needed.

If you’ve an idea, MEDITE can make it real. The extensive MEDITE range includes ten different families of MDF products and many variants, with over 400 possible specifications. Through consistent commitment to research, development and ongoing investment in technology, MEDITE has become established as the leading brand in the MDF market by introducing a wide variety of quality products and customer led innovations.

1st Passivhaus in Wiltshire achieved with help from MEDITE VENT & SMARTPLY PROPASSIV

February 2021

First Passivhaus in Wiltshire achieved with help from MEDITE VENT and SMARTPLY PROPASSIV

MEDITE VENT and SMARTPLY PROPASSIV proved to be a winning combination for the first oak frame Passivhaus to be built in the heart of Wiltshire, South West England.
Built by award-winning construction company Erigo Developments, Seldom Seen, a private detached residence, was at the time of completion the first house in Wiltshire to meet the Passivhaus standard. It still ranks as only the eighth certified Passivhaus in the South West of England.
Designed around a traditional oak frame and finished in oak cladding, the house was strategically sympathetic to its rural Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) setting.
The combination of MEDITE VENT and SMARTPLY PROPASSIV helped to achieve its Passivhaus status.
Rebecca Thursby, Director of Erigo Developments commented: “At the time, there was nothing else on the market that fulfilled its role in this location. We used an oak frame to create the external envelope and then choose both MEDITE VENT and SMARTPLY PROPASSIV to achieve the level of airtightness required to meet the Passivhaus standard. We managed to get the air tightness down to 0.38 ACH @ 50 Pascals, which is very good.”
To reach Passivhaus standard, a building must achieve an airtightness level of 0.6ACH (Air Change per Hour) at 50 Pascals or less. In other words, the volume of uncontrolled air leakages in 1 hour must be less than 0.6 times the overall building volume when the difference in air pressure between the indoors and outdoors is 50 Pascals. Named after French mathematician and physicist Blaise Pascal, ‘Pascals’ is the unit by which pressure is measured. In this case, it indicates the air pressure difference between inside the building and outside the building for the airtightness test. Reaching an airtightness level of 0.38 can be considered a remarkable achievement.
Perfect for use in low energy buildings, MEDITE VENT is a high performance, breathable sheathing panel, suitable for use in timber frame structures. It boasts high racking strength in excess of Category 1 requirements, and high vapour permeability alongside weather resistance. Its extremely low vapour diffusion factor helps to prevent condensation and because it is manufactured with no added formaldehyde, it contributes to both a healthier working environment for installing contractors and a healthier living environment for building occupants.
This intelligently formulated panel is teamed with SMARTPLY PROPASSIV, an airtight structural OSB/3 panel with integrated vapour control properties, used as structural sheathing in timber frame buildings. These features eliminate the need for additional Air and Vapour Control layer (AVCL) membranes. Its coating also provides a durable, smooth surface perfect for the use of airtight tape at the panel joints. SMARTPLY’s in-house speciality surfacing technology provides this integrated vapour barrier, which delivers high and constant vapour resistance across the whole surface.
For this project, the timber frame was in-filled with Icyenene sprayfoam insulation, with SMARTPLY PROPASSIV lining the interior, alongside plasterboard facing the room. MEDITE VENT was installed on the exterior of the spray foam, which was then topped with Tyvek wrap and finished with the timber cladding.
MEDITE SMARTPLY’s entire product range, including MEDITE VENT and SMARTPLY PROPASSIV, is manufactured with FSC® certified Irish timber, from their own sustainably managed forests, demonstrating a clear supply chain and manufacturing process.
Being conscious of how this industry impacts the environment is also something that Erigo Developments takes very seriously. Erigo is an award-winning construction company that puts an exceptionally strong focus on being environmentally responsible. The company demonstrates this by selecting carbon responsible materials and always aiming to achieve zero non-hazardous waste to landfill in all of their projects.
“We've made a commitment that we're only going to build to a Passivhaus standard going forward, and to build with carbon responsible materials,” continued Rebecca. “I think everyone needs to do their bit to combat climate change.”
“I think that building regulations need to go further in terms of power requirements and what's needed from houses now to achieve energy efficiency. That way, everyone knows what they can do in order to reduce their energy demands. There also needs to be more incentives in place to make people choose carbon responsible materials.”
The use of MEDITE VENT and SMARTPLY PROPASSIV provides a winning formula for sustainable building.
