Insulation specialist Celotex Ltd has announced a series of innovations aimed at keeping its product range in line with all new build and RMI requirements for the foreseeable future.
Celotex tuff-R Zero and double-R high-performance polyisocyanurate (PiR) rigid insulation boards provide a slimline solution to all common building insulation applications. They have enjoyed unprecedented sales growth since the 2002 revisions to The Building Regulations Part L, offering a low impact option in answer to more demanding minimum U values.
The company has recently undertaken a multi-million pound investment programme, including new manufacturing and warehousing facilities and a second production line. These developments place Celotex in an advantageous position in the build-up to further revisions to The Building Regulations Part L in 2005/6 and simultaneous implementation of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive.
The new production line facilitates the manufacture of Celotex tuff-R Zero GA3000Z boards in 100mm standard thickness and well beyond. 100mm board is ideally suited for use in both cold and warm roofs, stud partitions and flooring and will gain in importance as the new legislation takes hold. Additional production capacity also facilitates the introduction of an extended product range and Celotex will be making a number of exciting announcements in the coming months.
The tuff-R Zero GA3000Z range will feature all standard CE marking information printed on the facer, with variable information including board dimensions, thermal resistance value and product traceability printed on board edges. The company is also introducing a new packaging method with better environmental performance.
