Heating and Insulation

Insulated Cladding

Double skin with fibreglass insulation

Double skin with fibreglass insulation

Liner panel separated from outer sheet by galvanised steel spacer system.

Insulated with glass fibre or mineral wool where fire resistance is needed.
60mm fibreglass U value = 0.6 W/m2K
83mm fibreglass U value = 0.45 W/m2K
100mm fibreglass U value = 0.35 W/m2K
160mm fibreglass U value = 0.25 W/m2K

Laminated fibre glass quilt insulation with decorative facing

Laminated fibre glass quilt insulation
with decorative facing

Fibreglass insulation quilt with a white reinforced foil or a PVC skin laminated to under face, which forms the internal lining to the building. A cost effective choice for insulating storage buildings.

Composite sandwich panel

The outer profiled sheet is normally galvanised steel substrate, colour coated with Plastisol, PvF2, polyester or self galvanised finish as required. The insulation core is an integral closed cellular rigid CFC free isocyanurate or urethane foam with an average density of 35 kg/m3. The inner embossed and ribbed lining sheet is normally 0.4mm thick galvanised steel substrate which may be finished with an off-white colour coat if required. Other insulation options are available.

Many types are not approved by insurers and many types do not give fire resistance. Please ask for advice.

We advise you stop the wall cladding 2.1m from the floor. Why?

Heating and Air Conditioning

On large open buildings such as hangars it is a bad idea to try and heat / cool the air volume. Use focused radiant heaters, mobile local heaters or coolers and ducted fans from the roof space. Ask for more details.
