  Simple Saver System® by Thermal Design Enhances Green Features of Wooster Elementary

Jackson Brown King Architects used the Simple Saver System by Thermal Design, Inc. to assist in attaining Arkansas’ first school with a LEED® for Schools Silver certification. Over 64,000 square feet of the Simple Saver System was installed in Wooster Elementary.

The Simple Saver System is a patented insulation liner system used for new and existing commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. It meets the energy codes for “in-place” R-values and retains these values beyond installation. The installed Simple Saver’s insulation fills the purlin space with uncompressed insulation, attaining the specified R-values and increasing the thermal efficiency of metal buildings.

“We use the Simple Saver System anytime we have an exposed pre-engineered metal building” said Randy Palculict, AIA LEED AP of Jackson Brown King Architects. “The bright white fabric of the Simple Saver System increases the reflectivity enhancing daylighting features and this reflectivity helps in Green design. The system looks clean and tight along with a high R-value.”

Another bonus noted Palculict, “The Simple Saver Systems reduces the Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC). With hard concrete floors you need more sound absorption quality and the Simple Saver System provides more than a typical lay in ceiling tile”. The system also provides an “instant” finish, so it minimizes the amount of materials such as drywall, painting, etc. The reduction in manufacturing, shipping, and waste removal of products helps attaining LEED points.

During construction, Simple Saver provides extra safety with its fall protection rating. “It makes you feel good using a system that provides extra protection for those working on the building”, noted Palculict.

The benefits of using the Simple Saver Simple by Thermal Design are many. “Besides from the superior thermal performance, safety features, light reflectivity and acoustical value the system provides; architects, designers and owners are extremely pleased with the clean, bright, grid ceiling appearance. When properly installed, the Simple Saver System provides an instant finish for a variety of roof and wall types and is extremely durable in a variety of building use conditions”, described Brad Rowe, National Marketing Manager of Thermal Design, Inc.
