At this year’s RoofEx, on the 1st and 2nd May at the NEC, Birmingham, Knauf Insulation will be showcasing its wide range of high performance insulation products for roofing applications, on stand 719.
Maria Morgan, Product Manager - Polyfoam® XPS and XPE at Knauf Insulation said: “As the leading UK insulation manufacturer and the only producer of four types of insulation, we have an unrivaled portfolio to meet the increasing demand for energy efficiency, fire and acoustic performance across the build environment. This specialist exhibition is an ideal platform for Knauf Insulation to present its wide range of high performance insulation products that are suitable for all roofing applications.
“We will be showcasing solutions from our range of flat roofing insulation products including extruded polystyrene (XPS), rock and glass mineral wool. Additionally, our experienced team will be on hand to talk to contractors and installers at length, providing sound advice on the regulations that need to be adhered to, as well as offering advice on all areas from the design and planning stages through to installation and the performance of products.”
During the two-day exhibition Knauf Insulation will have its Polyfoam ECO extruded polystyrene roofboard on display. This outstanding product, has achieved an industry first as the only XPS product to receive a certified BRE Green Guide Rating of ‘A’ – providing confidence to specifiers that the product is a proven sustainable solution.
Suitable for inverted roofs, where the insulation is placed above the waterproof membrane, Polyfoam ECO XPS is a robust product that is almost 100 per cent closed cell, resulting in a strong, highly moisture resistant – making Polyfoam ECO roofboards particularly suitable for green roofs as well as terraced areas, thanks to their high compressive strength.
Knauf Insulation will be displaying its Rocksilk® Krimpact Flat Roof Slab product – a high strength, rigid rock mineral wool slab – which is specifically designed for use in flat roofing applications. What makes this product stand out is its exceptional fire and acoustic properties. In conjunction with Knauf Insulation’s Acoustic Membrane (KAM 5), the Flat Roof Slab has been extensively tested for sound insulation and rain noise, making the product wholly suitable for public buildings particularly within the health and education sectors.
Furthermore, both Polyfoam ECO and Rocksilk Krimpact Flat Roof products are manufactured in the UK and represent no known threat to the environment, and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP).
Finally, visitors can find out about Knauf Insulation’s Earthwool® Factory Clad range of glass mineral wool products, which are suitable for use with all types of built-up metal roofing systems. This ensures that contractors visiting the company’s stand are fully kept up to date with product information to suit all roofing requirements.
