Knauf Insulation has launched a multi-benefit insulation solution for loft conversions and warm roof construction. Crown Room-in-Roof Roll thermally and acoustically insulates pitched roofs at rafter level, and boasts unbeatable A1 fire performance.
Room-in-Roof Roll insulates between the rafters of pitched roofs in both new build and existing buildings. The compression packaging of Room-in-Roof Roll means less handling and it is friction fitted, thereby completely filling the rafter space and eliminating air gaps.
Quick and easy to install, Room-in-Roof Roll has an overlapping foil facing that is wider than the insulation itself, enabling it to be stapled to the rafters to create a vapour control layer. Trials have indicated that Room-in-Roof roll is almost twice as fast to install as rigid foam board. With a thermal conductivity of 0.032 or 0.037 W/mK, Room-in-Roof Roll ensures an excellent thermal performance and greatly improves a building's Energy Performance Certificate rating.
Lydia Sharples, head of communications for Knauf Insulation, explains: "Room-in-Roof Roll unquestionably provides more benefits for both homeowners and installers than any other insulation product available. It can achieve ultra high thermal performance in a single layer solution and provides high levels of sound absorption.
"The drive for more sustainable housing is highlighted by new measurements such as The Code for Sustainable Homes and the mandatory certification of a domestic dwelling's energy performance. Consequently energy efficiency needs to be at the top of everyone's agenda – the environmental reasons for this are equally, if not more important than, the financial ones.
"The Code for Sustainable Homes, a result of the Government's climate change bill, is an all round measure of a home's sustainability, right down to the materials with which it is built. Homes need to make sure they're achieving the highest possible level under the Code, and innovative insulation products like Crown Room-in-Roof make a huge difference."
