ALLYOUR INSULATION NEEDS WRAPPED UP IN one
Knauf Insulation has launched a brand new insulation product that provides the highest thermal resistance (R-value) of any single layer insulation product available in the UK - Crown Loft Roll one.
Crown Loft Roll one is an ultra thick glass mineral wool product intended to be used as a single-layer loft insulation solution, eliminating the requirement for cross-layering in order to achieve a U-value of 0.16W/m²K. As a result, the product is faster to install than a traditional two-layer solution and the position of the ceiling joists can still be identified after the installation.
Lightweight and economic, Crown Loft Roll one is available ready-cut to fit timber joists at either 400mm or 600mm centres and achieves Building Regulations compliance in one layer. It has a thermal conductivity of 0.044 W/mK and is non-combustible with an A1 Euroclass fire rating.
Crown Loft Roll one is made from a high content of recycled glass bottles and is free from CFCs, HCFCs and any other material with ozone depletion potential in its manufacture and content. It also combines all the sustainability qualities of glasswool, along with combined thermal performance, sound absorption and fire resistance.Providing the same thermal performance as a dual layer glasswool solution, Crown Loft Roll one means less time, less handling and less waste.
Commenting on Knauf's latest innovation, Lydia Sharples, head of communications for Knauf Insulation said: "We believe we have come up with a unique, yet simple, solution to achieving U-values in line with Building Regulations. Proper insulation remains the most cost effective way of reducing the energy consumption of a building and we believe Crown loft Roll one will provide an easy solution for houses wanting an improved Energy Performance Certificate."
