In every difficulty there is an opportunity!
Shortage of supply, or significant variation in price, of any material means that customers and suppliers have to seek out alternatives.
A progressive and informed supplier sees an opportunity to strengthen their relationship with their customers by finding a solution that cause the lowest level of disruption and maintains best value.
For masonry walls the PIR substitution chart, which can be downloaded below, will allow you to minimise that disruption to your customers business.
In the case of shortages of PIR partial fill insulation for masonry cavity walls, there is an obvious and viable solution in full fill Earthwool DriTherm 32 Cavity Slab. In many cases it is more cost effective than the partial fill alternative.
Knauf Insulation is ready and able to help you fulfil your customer needs with Earthwool DriTherm 32. It meets the customers technical requirement in the same cavity width as was designed for a partial fill solution.
For Warm Roof applications the substitution is a little trickier, but there are benefits of substituting PIR with Earthwool Rafter Roll or Earthwool OmniFit slab. We have options available utilising both Multifoil and Plasterboard Thermal Laminate which maintain manageable overall thickness whilst mainintaing the U-vaues required. Warm Roof solutions sheets are also available via completing the download form below.
