This CPD explains the core issues surrounding and effecting the insulation of solid walls, either by installing external wall insulation (EWI) or internal wall insulation (IWI). The module also compares the suitability of insulation materials and systems, how the choice of insulation impacts on the exterior wall design and solution options for both new build and retrofit applications to existing buildings.
For the designer: For building designers, this module explains the principles of solid wall insulation systems and the regulations that apply to them. It will help to make you aware of the different types of insulation and their performance characteristics, and also understand the importance of the fire performance of insulation products or materials used in these applications and systems.
For the specifier: It is critical that the correct product is specified for its intended application. With this in mind Knauf Insulation offers the specifier the most suitable, cost effective product for the application that most meets the customers needs.
