Introducing a multi-purpose insulation range of solutions, which helps meet Building Regulations, that has outstanding thermal, acoustic and fire performance - the new Knauf Insulation Earthwool OmniFit range.
Not only does Knauf Insulation have a brand new multi-purpose insulation range available but it is one that has been developed as a result of detailed feedback from trade specialists, making Earthwool OmniFit an indispensible choice for merchants and stockists to meet the demands of their customers.
Following extensive research with builders, contractors and insulation specialists, the Earthwool OmniFit range has been designed for multiple applications and provides outstanding thermal, acoustic and fire performance across three products: Earthwool OmniFit Slab, OmniFit Roll and OmniFit Stud.
Steve Smith, Market Development Manager at Knauf Insulation commented: “Our research revealed some startling results: of 225 installers surveyed, 89 per cent said they would be keen to trial an alternative product to existing flexible slabs and rock mineral wool rolls, if it meant that handling would be easier and the products would be softer to touch. We realised that we had to fill this gap and therefore developed the new Earthwool OmniFit insulation range.”
By using this feedback Knauf Insulation has developed an insulation solution that is not only kinder and more practical to the user, but is also an essential offering for the merchant. Earthwool OmniFit features products that are multi-purpose, so installers can use each product to suit multiple applications. Each product has been specifically designed to provide compliance with Building Regulations, giving merchants and their customers complete peace of mind. Plus, the range includes more material per pallet than alternatives, meaning more material in the storage space allocated. Finally, there is a comprehensive marketing campaign from Knauf Insulation to fully help and support merchants in their offering to customers.
Earthwool OmniFit also delivers exceptional environmental performance as it is manufactured using the innovative ECOSE® Technology - a revolutionary, bio-based, formaldehyde free binder technology, that is based on rapidly renewable materials, rather than petro-based chemicals. Resulting in a softer, easy to cut and handle insulation product. What’s more, Knauf Insulation was the world's first company to receive the coveted Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold standard for its glass mineral wool products made with ECOSE Technology - a characteristic that not only benefits the end user but also the installers fitting the product.
With a thermal conductivity of 0.035W/mK across all thicknesses – an improvement on existing flexible slabs available in the market – Earthwool OmniFit Slab is suitable for both timber and metal stud applications and is available in either 400mm or 600mm wide variants.
The multi-purpose roll product, Earthwool OmniFit Roll, has been designed specifically for loft insulation, internal partition walls, internal floors and separating floor applications. With a thermal conductivity of 0.040W/mK and a density in excess of 10kg/m3, the product helps provide compliance with both thermal and acoustic Building Regulations.
Meanwhile, the Earthwool OmniFit Stud is a roll product designed with a high level of thermal performance – 0.034W/mK, ideal for use within rafters and both timber and light steel frame walls. It has a 1200mm width allowing installers the flexibility to cut the product on site to suit the application – so only one product is needed for all stud applications.
