Armaflex insulation at the Royal Wharf development

Armaflex insulation at the Royal Wharf development

Armacell insulation was chosen for the phase 1 of the Royal Wharf development to provide long-term condensation control on cold water pipework and prevent energy losses on heating and hot water services.

Located in the Royal Docks in East London, Royal Wharf is a regeneration project developing a 40-acre site on the banks of the River Thames. The mixed use scheme incorporates luxury apartments, town houses, retail and business space, restaurants and bars. The new neighbourhood is one of the last sites for a new town to be developed within London.

Armaflex has been installed on all the hot and cold water pipework services in 811 apartments. Pipework has been predominantly insulated using 19 and 25mm thick insulation for hot water systems to minimise heat losses in line with Domestic Building Services Compliance Guide recommendations. By installing thicker insulation to pipework, up to 87% of heat losses are saved. The closed-cell AF/Armaflex Class O product also provides a market leading water vapour transmission resistance (10,000 mu) for condensation control on cold water pipes.

In total around 150,000m of AF/Armaflex Class O Self Seal tubes have been applied. The self seal tubes are simply fitted around pipework before the self-adhesive backing paper is removed and the seams are sealed in place, helping to reduce install times significantly.

With a construction value of £720M, the overall scheme comprises 3,600 residential units, constructed over three phases and due for completion by 2019. The project is designed to seamlessly blend together apartments and large three and four storey townhouses. Over 45% of the land is designated for open spaces and play areas and also features a riverside park linking the Royal Wharf Pier, Royal Wharf Amphitheatre and Riverside Walk.
