Applications - Selecting appropriate application specific products

Kingspan Kooltherm K15 Phenolic Rainscreen Cladding Boards This insulated rainscreen board with composite foil on both sides and is used to insulate behind cladding systems, and should be installed between proprietary fixing rails. The insulation boards are easily cut to individual spacings

Selecting the most cost effective insulation product for a specific application, can be a delicate balancing act. Solutions multiply as differing insulation product types are added to the equation.

Selecting what appers to be the cheapest insulation may not offer the best solution. Products that appear to offer the best value may come with certain caveats, including … increased installation costs, fire safety issues, compressive strength anomalies, condensation risks, additional space requirements, etcetera.

We have created our 'Product Applications' section in an attempt to emphasise the most appropriate range of products that are suitable for the multifarious means of addressing individual insulation applications.

We have split the various applications into sections, as follows
