How do I increase performance of my insulation?

When you’re purchasing insulation materials you can make your building work harder both thermally and acoustically by simply choosing the right products. If you’re considering using Celotex general purpose insulation boards for example, by choosing the FR5000 product range instead you can increase thermal performance and fire rating in your build.

Opt for Celotex FR5000 instead of general purpose boards

fr5000-celotexBy choosing Celotex’s fire resistant FR5000 insulation PIR board you can increase fire resistance and achieve a lower u-value. The simple switch can offer you more thermally efficient insulation that most mineral fibre products as well as a 10% increase in thermal performance from Celotex GA4000. Celotex FR5000 has a Class O fire rating and is suitable for installation in floors, walls and roofs. Make the switch with Celotex FR5000.


By switching out the extremely popular ROCKWOOL RWA45 for its cousin RW3, you can increase the acoustic performance of your insulation. ROCKWOOL RW3 absorbs more sound so will work harder overall as part of your building’s insulation. On top of this you can also request a water repellant grade to meet BP engineering standards.

Choose SoundBoard 4 instead of SoundBoard 3

SoundBoard 4 can give you an additional 49 dB of sound reduction compared to its counterpart, which is a reduction in sound as loud as light traffic. This increased level of soundproofing can be had for a board just 4mm thicker, meaning you’ll lose barely any space as a result of the upgrade. Take a look at SoundBoard 4.
