High performance non-combustible insulation for rainscreen façade systems.
Rainscreen façade systems are lightweight when compared to brick and masonry solutions and can provide the designer with a wide range of aesthetic options.
In addition to thermal performance, fire performance of insulation materials is a crucial consideration, particularly when designing buildings over 18m in height or when the building is to have high occupancy levels or be used by vulnerable occupants.

How accurate are your thermal calculations?
There are several options for calculating the thermal performance of rainscreen façade systems - if the calculation is even marginally inaccurate it can have a damaging impact on the overall thermal performance of a building which makes it crucially important to ensure the right method is used.
Knauf Insulation offers FREE 3D U-value calculations to BS EN 10211 as standard - the most accurate method for calculating U-values of rainscreen façade systems – ensuring the thermal requirements specified during design stage are achieved.
