Why are our product improvements important for you?

You will have seen recently that, at Knauf Insulation, we have made some exciting changes to our product packaging.

These include:

  • More prominent product features (such as thermal and acoustic icons, ECOSE® Technology, and Euroclass A1 Non-combustible logo and wording for fire safety assurance and compliance);
  • Bigger and clearer product names;
  • Colour-coded  thermal conductivity groups for the Glass Mineral Wool range;
  • More sustainable packaging through increased recycled content in each packaging film.

A complete redesign of our full product range packaging designs puts the information you need front and centre, making it easier than ever to choose the right product in branch or on site.

Insulation products are manufactured for specific applications and are rarely a ‘one size fits all’ product, so it is vitally important that the right products are used at the right time. We now prominently display the product features on our packs, to ensure you use the right product for your application.

We also know how difficult it is to differentiate between products whilst you’re in the yard or on site with multiple products looking the same, that’s why we have made product names bigger and clearer on the pack. And we have also colour-coded the whole Glass Mineral Wool range by thermal conductivity group, this means that whether you’re up close or far away you’ll be able to spot the product you need with ease.

The sustainability credentials of building materials is on everyone’s minds with tightening legislation and the push to build environmentally-friendly, sustainable buildings for the future. We are continually looking for ways that we can make our products more sustainable, so our first step has been to reduce the ink content on each pack. We are also introducing a new film with a minimum of 30% recycled content, which means our packaging is even easier to recycle. So you can use our products knowing you are building for now and the future.

We have more exciting changes to our product range coming in the next few months, so for more information on our new range please visit: https://www.knaufinsulation.co.uk/the-best-keeps-getting-better
