Kingspan stands as a renowned solution in thermal insulation. Its premium rigid foam boards and systems are designed for high-performance building envelopes. Kingspan’s cutting-edge insulators combine revolutionary thermal conductivity and moisture control to achieve exceptional R-values within ultrathin profiles.
Utilising a closed-cell polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam core, Kingspan insulation boards achieve certified R-values up to R-9 per inch of thickness. Premium facings enhance Kingspan insulation’s resistance to vapour drive and environmental exposure while allowing moisture escape.
Rockwool insulation offers exceptional thermal performance plus unrivalled fire resilience, acoustic control and sustainability. Made from up to 60% recycled materials, Rockwool’s non-combustible product spun from stone enhances fire safety with a melting point of over 1000°C (1832°F). Stone fibres slow flame spread without dangerous off-gassing. This gives Rockwool an industry-leading A1 fire rating for peace of mind in fire-prone residential and commercial buildings.
Rockwool’s dense stone wool also excels at dampening noise. Improved sound absorption is particularly prevalent in low-frequency ranges from heating and cooling systems. Offering thermal factors from R-3.2 to R-4.2 per inch, Rockwool competes with leading insulation brands for energy efficiency.
With thermal conductivity as low as 0.022 W/mK, Celotexinsulation boards achieve the highest R-value per inch of any insulation material. PIR foam at the core resists moisture absorption and settles minimally over time for durable thermal resistance. Complementing foam cores, Celotex gypsum and magnesium oxide boards add acoustic separation, fire resistance and design flexibility.
Celotex leverages cutting-edge coatings like aluminium facers for all-in-one insulation and vapour control. Multi-layer foil facings improve airtightness and prevent condensation issues leading to mould growth. Careful joint detailing further minimises thermal bridging.
Crafted primarily from glass mineral wool, Knaufinsulation materials excel in thermal resistance. Its fibrous structure contributes not only to superior thermal resistance but also provides exceptional acoustic capabilities. This dual functionality makes it an ideal choice for projects where acoustic comfort is prioritised.
Knauf insulation materials are engineered to meet stringent fire safety standards. The non-combustible nature of the insulation ensures elevated fire resistance. Widely offered in insulation roll or batt format, the insulation adapts seamlessly to various construction settings. A commitment to sustainability is also key to Knauf insulation, using up to 80% of recycled materials such as post-consumer glass, as well as eco-friendly resin binders.
The utilisation of polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam sets Recticel insulation apart. This quality facilitates the effective reduction of heat transfer, ensuring optimal energy conservation across a range of construction applications. Its structural robustness not only fortifies the insulation against heat loss but also reinforces its ability to withstand moisture ingress.
Recticel materials are meticulously engineered to prioritise compressive strength. It ensures steadfast structural stability in diverse applications. This characteristic extends the insulation's lifecycle, particularly where load-bearing capacity is important. Offered in various configurations, including rigid foam boards and panels, the insulation seamlessly integrates into diverse architectural settings.
