Knauf Insulation – the UK’s only manufacturer of four different types of insulation - will be showcasing its Green Deal insulation solutions at stand D12 of Retro Expo.
The manufacturer will be holding live demonstrations and practical presentations on refurbishment solutions, encompassing ThermoShell® External Wall Insulation (EWI), Internal Wall Insulation (IWI), as well as cavity wall insulation and lofts. In addition, visitors will be able to learn for themselves the comprehensive portfolio of insulation solutions available for roofs, walls and floors available from the company; all of which have been developed to current Building Standards and beyond, offering outstanding performance.
In properties where it is not appropriate to alter a building’s façade, such as in a conservation area, IWI can be used to efficiently insulate the street-facing wall without changing the building’s appearance. It delivers high levels of thermal performance cost effectively and the simplicity of the system allows a competent tradesman to install and finish using a traditional plaster skim finish or dry lining techniques. The flexibility of the system gives the installer the opportunity to install on a room-by-room basis, or as part of a whole building refurbishment plan.
Often, the same limitations do not apply to the rear of the property, so EWI can provide an effective solution for the rear elevations, without further disruption to the building’s occupants. The ability to install the system without disturbing residents, coupled with its cost effective price point, makes ThermoShell EWI ideal for small and large residential properties, flats and commercial buildings; especially where installing internal wall insulation is not an option. The system has been designed for the lifetime of the property, protecting the existing façade from the effects of weathering and extending the longevity of the building.
Throughout the exhibition Knauf Insulation will be on hand to discuss what solutions are available for the Green Deal and how to take full advantage of the Government incentive, as well as offering unbiased, sound advice on its wider range of products and systems.
Lydia Sharples, Head of Communications at Knauf Insulation comments: “We offer a wide range of insulation solutions and so visitors to our stand will be able to seek advice on a variety of applications. Additionally, visitors will be able to find out more information on our ThermoShell courses aimed to up-skill installers for the Green Deal, as well as advising them on how to make the most of the Government’s incentive.
“On both Wednesday and Thursday of the exhibition our Technical Manager, Stephen Wise will be sharing his thoughts within the seminar programme, delivering an overview of the importance of understanding the behaviour and performance of the building fabric. Furthermore, our External Affairs Director, Steven Heath, will be part of a panel of industry experts within the Green Deal Summit.”
