Knauf Insulation unveiled an exciting new range of glass mineral wool products at this year's Ecobuild. Perimeter Plus™ Blow in Blanket System® (BIBS) is one of a series of products that are key to Knauf Insulation's drive to help buildings achieve the highest possible rating under the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Knauf Insulation's Perimeter Plus™ is a super high performance, glass blowing insulation for specialist installers and contractors. Suitable for new build timber frame construction, Perimeter Plus™ enables homes to make ultra high energy savings, providing an innovative solution for compliance with the Code of Sustainable Homes. Perimeter Plus was launched two years ago in the USA and is now the fastest growing method for insulating timber frame houses.
As well as boasting excellent sound absorption characteristics, Perimeter Plus™ considerably lowers a building's energy expenditure and so reduces the demand for fuel used in heating and cooling buildings. Perimeter Plus™ has a thermal conductivity of 0.034W/mK, and the energy and carbon dioxide emissions saved by the product in use vastly outweigh those generated in their manufacture.
The innovative Blow-in-Blanket® system creates a thermal, acoustic and fire resistant barrier for timber frame construction. The product completely fills all gaps, voids and hard to reach areas around pipes, electrical wires and fixtures ensuring excellent coverage and a custom fit regardless of shape or size.
Lydia Sharples, head of communications for Knauf Insulation, commented: "Insulation is the most cost effective method of improving the energy efficiency of a building. With the introduction of compulsory Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) and initiatives such as the Code for Sustainable Homes, energy efficiency needs to be at the top of developers' agendas, for environmental and legal reasons as well as financial ones."
"Innovative insulation products like Perimeter Plus™ undoubtedly play a major role in this, not only through their sustainable credentials and excellent thermal performance, but also at a more practical level through ease of installation and the advantage of having a perfect fit every time. Perimeter Plus™ is set to raise the benchmark for excellence in the insulation of timber frame buildings."
