Reinforcing its position as the brand leading producer of PIR (polyisocyanurate) insulation, Celotex has announced another step through the technological barrier – with the majority of its product ranges being enhanced to a super low lambda of 0.022W/mK.
This improved lambda value, achieved by Celotex
’ scientists and technicians, will help specifiers and installers achieve better U-values and enable the use of thinner insulation solutions.
’ improved thermal efficiency allows architects and specifiers to meet the Building Regulations with greater ease. With Part L of the Building Regulations coming into effect in October 2010, high performance PIR products play an essential part in aiding the 25% reduction of the UK’s carbon emissions.
The main advantage of the lambda enhancement is in the improved U-values it offers. This allows specifiers to opt for thinner solutions to meet requirements, improving useable space between 5-10mm and reducing material costs simultaneously. Likewise, for schemes where the utmost degree of insulation is required, enhanced targets can be met for the minimum of product thickness.
prides itself on staying at the forefront of insulation technology to offer specifiers and installers the most versatile and efficient products. To reflect the thermal improvement of Celotex
products they will now be re-branded from 3000 series to 4000, allowing specifiers and installers to identify the new lambda 22 products.
“The real magic is in the innovation. Here at Celotex
, we’re always striving to develop the best products, so that contractors, architects and specifiers can access the perfect materials for their projects. Improving the thermal performance of our products really illustrates the company’s dedication to technical progression,” said Paul Evans, Product Manager for Celotex
“That commitment seals our position at the forefront of the PIR sector. The 4000 series is just one of our achievements this year – and our technicians are still working hard to discover new breakthroughs in PIR technology.”
