Knauf Insulation, the UK's leading manufacturer of insulation products, highlighted its market leading glass and mineral wool products at ecobuild, with a fully interactive and educational stand.
The main theme of Knauf Insulation's stand was be sustainability, both in the manufacture of its products and their application. Knauf Insulation's glasswool range is made from recycled glass bottles and is completely recyclable at the end of the building's life.
Mineral wool also has the advantage of being made from abundant, natural raw materials, is safe to use and can save over 1500 times the energy used in its manufacture during the life of the building.
Knauf Insulation also launched a range of brand new products which were on display for the first time, as well as its established insulation products. The stand itself featured exciting interactive elements to get visitors thinking about sustainability and how insulation is the most cost effective method of improving the energy efficiency of a building.
Lydia Sharples, head of communications for Knauf Insulation commented: "We had a great time at this year's show – visitors to the stand particularly enjoyed the bowling alley!"
"There is a serious side as well though. The Government's climate change bill, which sets out targets for reducing carbon emissions, and subsequently, initiatives such as the Code for Sustainable Homes, should be at the top of everyone's agenda.
"The Code for Sustainable Homes is an all round measure of a home's sustainability, not just its carbon emissions but right down to the materials it is built with. Our stand will also promote the message of each home achieving the highest rating possible under the Code and how insulation plays a major role in this."
