What Insulation Products Do We Have To Offer You?

Today we are going to summarise what we have been looking at over the past week: insulation.

 A vast amount of expensive heat escapes from your home through the loft in winter and during the summer, a lot of excess heat enters your home through the roof. By insulating loft floors, walls and perhaps the rafters of your home with good quality insulation, you can keep most of the heat where it is meant to be. Your home will then be comfortably warm during the winter and pleasantly cooler during the summer if insulated correctly.  

Here at Greengates Builders Merchants, Lancashire we sell the following types of insulation: 

  1. Isowool Cavity Wall Insulation

Isowool CWS is designed to be installed during construction in the cavity between two masonry leaves in external walls. Isowool CWS is composed of high quality glass wool, which is bonded with a synthetic, thermo-setting resin, silicone impregnated, to form a strong yet resilient insulating slab, which is easy to handle, cut and install.

At Greengates we stock this insulation in 50mm and 85mm thicknesses.

  1. Isowool Loft Insulation

Isowool Spacesaver is a high quality thermal and acoustic insulating mat in roll form, perforated along the roll to allow the user to use full, half or third width options in roof spaces. Glass mineral wool insulation rolls suitable for providing thermal and acoustic insulation in domestic-type pitched roofs.

At Greengates we stock this Insulation in two thicknesses: 100mm and 150mm.

  1. Rockwool Flexi

Rockwool Flexi is a unique insulation product with a patented flexible edge along one side. This unique Flexi edge is produced using patented technology to ensure a perfect fit is maintained between the product and its supporting framework. This ensures the insulation’s integrity. The ‘Flexi’ edge allows the product to be tightly fitted between timber and metal frames, without the need for cutting or waste.

At Greengates we stock this insulation in 50mm and 100mm thicknesses.

  1. SuperQuilt Multi Foil Insulation

SuperQuilt is a multi-layer Insulation blanket for use in pitched roofs. SuperQuilt offers massive thermal insulation in a thin, flexible, multi-layer membrane.

At Greengates we stock SuperQuilt in 10mtr x 1.5mtr packs/rolls.

  1. Tubolit Pipe Insulation

Tubolit is a high quality CFC and HCFC free silver grey flexible closed cell polyethylene pipe insulation. Tubolit Pipe Insulation is particularly effective for the thermal insulation of domestic heating and plumbing pipework for energy conservation and frost protection. Tubolit Pipe Insulation is easy to install and it is not fibrous and so does not create dust during installation or use.

At Greengates we stock this insulation in 2m lengths to suit pipe sizes: 15mm, 22mm & 28mm.

  1. Vermiculite Fill Insulation

Is a natural material of thin flakes which are very light and which also contain traces of water. When exposed to heat the flakes expand to provide very effective and high quality loft insulation. Vermiculite loft insulation is also odourless, clean and easy-to-handle. The material is very effective at stopping heat loss and, in warmer tempe­ratures, is also a coolant.

At Greengates we stock sacks of 110ltr (3cubic ft) Vermiculite Fill Insulation.

  1. Xtratherm Insulation

Xtratherm Thin-R is foil faced poly­iso­cy­anurate (PIR) insulation board suitable for use in floors, walls and roofs.
