Under a large scale upgrade and refurbishment scheme at Warwick University, over 35,000m2 of URSA 10 Loft Roll has been installed across 10 of the estate's key buildings.
Keen to utilise a sustainable, lightweight and cost-effective system, Coventry-based Williams Joinery & Construction specified URSAs market-leading product. Builders merchants, Builders Supply Stores Ltd was able to supply large quantities of product across the three-month installation period to the installers on an ongoing basis.
A mixture of lecture rooms, residential buildings and teaching blocks form part of the upgrade programme, all of which will benefit significantly through reduced heat loss in the oncoming winter months.
Manufactured by one of Europes leading insulation manufacturers, URSA 10 Loft Roll is a lightweight, non-combustible, unfaced glass mineral wool material. URSA glass wool products do not contain or use ozone depleting chemicals such as CFCs and HCFCs and are manufactured to ISO 19001 quality standards. The URSA system was specified following initial consideration of a number of eco-friendly insulation systems including one made of recycled plastic bottles. Following careful consideration, URSA 10 Loft Roll was chosen and its environmental benefits cited as a key advantage.
David Kemp, Sales Manager of URSA UK said; The specification of our URSA 10 Loft Roll at an education scheme of this scale clearly demonstrates the growing reputation of our products within the UK market. Whilst we have a huge presence on the continent, we are seeing market growth share within the UK as customers become increasingly aware of the many benefits our products offer.
Dave Williams of Williams Joinery & Construction said: This has been a large scale installation scheme, involving several buildings, that has required large amounts of insulation. The URSA 10 Loft Roll has proved to be a great choice and has met all of our requirements in terms of quality and strength, whilst supply and service from the URSA team has also been of a very high standard.
A high-quality, durable material, URSA 10 Loft Roll is available in a choice of four thicknesses (100, 150, 170 and 200mm). A combination of three thicknesses was used at the Warwick University scheme. The quality and durability of the product is excellent; it is rot proof, maintenance free and will uphold a rigid integrity once installed. It is also easy to handle and cut and offers significant space saving benefits through compaction of the rolls.
