Knauf Insulations ThermoShell® Internal Wall Insulation (IWI) system has been installed to a terraced cottage built in 1893, as part of a Green Deal project undertaken by one of Knauf Insulations approved installers, Energy Friend.
Colin Robinson, CEO of Energy Friend assessed his own home under the Green Deal at the end of 2013 and began work on his property at the beginning of 2014.
As the 19th century property is constructed from solid walls, Colin had the option of upgrading the property by installing either an External Wall Insulation system or an Internal Wall Insulation system. With the front of the house portraying a period aesthetic, Colin did not want to alter the exterior. Therefore, Knauf Insulations ThermoShell Internal Wall Insulation system was specified for this project thanks to its excellent thermal conductivity, sustainable manufacturing process and 25-year guarantee.
Colin continued: Along with the ThermoShell IWI system we decided to install EcoBatt between the existing rafters in the roof and we used Polyfoam ECO Floorboard for the flooring chosen from Knauf Insulations wide portfolio, as they have a range of products for a variety of applications.
We particularly chose Knauf Insulations ThermoShell IWI system as it makes clever use of thermally engineered studs to ensure a continuous layer of insulation - the actual framework is the insulation, which is very clever!
Specifically designed for upgrading solid wall properties, Knauf Insulations ThermoShell IWI system is BBA certified and provides the most effective solution to whole house - low energy refurbishments, by delivering outstanding thermal performance and comfort through a very straightforward and easy to use installation process.
