Knauf Insulation Products CE Markings

Important to note is that products that are currently CE marked or have been CE marked before July 1st 2013 are deemed to comply automatically with the CPR (Construction Products Regulation). All of Knauf Insulations building insulation products are CPR ready, additionally the CPR does not apply to fire protection and acoustic insulation products so they are unaffected by this new legislation.

The most important part of the CPR is the Declaration of Performance (DoP) which contains all of the key information about a product`s characteristic`s, when compiling the DoP the product manufacturer assumes responsibility that the product is in confirmation with its declared performance characteristics.
Knauf Insulation can provide a DoP for each product which can be able to find online via a unique web address to be found on the product label, packaging or invoice - this is not a service that we undertake on Knauf's, our our customer's behalf.

Product Installation

Knauf Insulation Building Slab Installation Examples

Example: Building a bedroom extension above an existing garage.

Building an extension to create a new first storey over an existing attached single-storey garage built with masonry cavity walls. The external walls and the pitched roof of the extension are new build. The roof of the garage has to be removed and a new intermediate floor constructed with deeper floor joists and at a level to coincide with the first floor of the house.

In order to minimise the additional load on the existing foundations, the example applies timber frame for the inner leaf of the external walls of the second storey, and raises the brick facing of the garage to be the outer leaf of the timber frame structure.

The floor structure will be timber joists and the roof will be insulated at ceiling level. The example proposes U-value of 0.30 W/m2K for the new external walls exceeds the standard elemental U-value of 0.28 W/m2K for new wall elements, but the area-weighted average heat loss for the thermal elements is less than using the standard elemental U-values

Pitched roof

Roof insulated with two layers of Earthwool Loft Roll 40, 100mm between the ceiling joists and 200mm over the ceiling joists achieves a U-value of 0.13 W/m2K.

External wall

Cavity wall with brick outer leaf and insulated timber frame system with 90mm Earthwool FrameTherm 32between the studs and a low emissivity breather membrane achieving a U-value of 0.30 W/m2K.

New floor

Two layers of 100mm Earthwool Flexible Slab between 200mm deep timber joists at 600mm centres achieves a U-value of 0.19 W/m2K.
