Welcome to the new digital magazine Insulation Expert; dedicated to sharing industry knowledge and expertise, as well as tackling the big questions and technical issues in the insulation sector.

Our aim for Insulation Expert is for it to be the one source of information you need on the important issues and technical details around all things insulation. We’ll also touch on the wider building and construction industry and provide you with insight and opinion, not only from our own business, but from external experts and other thought leaders.

We hope you enjoy reading the magazine and that it provides useful insight and knowledge throughout future publications.
