    Product Overview

    EST Listed RGB ColourWith rising energy costs the vast majority of us are looking for ways to save money: KV600 offers a cost effective, practical way to save energy in your home as well as helping to create a cosier environment. It has been approved by the Energy Saving Trust because of its thermal efficiency and energy saving properties.

    The product works by creating a thermal barrier at the wall surface ensuring more heat is retained within the room for massively reduced warm up times and on-going energy savings - at the same time combatting the formation of condensation and the resultant unhealthy and unsightly mould growth.

    KV600 is a 4mm thick composite product consisting of a PVC free insulation layer permanently bonded to a heavy duty reinforced liner, all designed to give many years of reliable and money saving service.

    Other benefits include great ‘back to flat’ capability, as well as reinforcement characteristics when on really rough neglected walls and ceilings.

    This product is suitable as a localised ‘problem solver’ for cold external walls and is not recommended for use in fire escape routes inside your home unless the surface is further treated with a fire retardant covering.

  • Assessment of insulation products are reviewed in 3 ways;

    1. The efficiency measurement of an actual material is called the Lambda. The higher the Lambda rating the more efficient it is and as a result will require less energy or heat to feel warm an cosy. This rating is measures in Watts / Meter x Kelvin.
    2. Another aspect is the thermal resistance (R), a measurement of how well a material resists the transfer of heat. This takes into account the thickness and the material's ingredients. The higher the rating the more resilient the material is, retaining the heat rather than allowing it to waste away. The measurement units are meters squared x Kelvin/Watts.
    3. Thermal transmittance (U) is the exact opposite of thermal resistance. This measurement is how easily a material conducts heat, so the lower the number the smaller of amount of energy or heat will be lost. This is measure in Watts/mtr2 x Kelvin
    4. Reviewing The Thermal Liner Energy Savings

    With these 3 measurements the energy savings can be worked out once the room is up to a constant steady temperature. The advantage of using thermal liner is that its heat saving properties will allow a room to get to a steady working temperature as it retains more heat. So in real life the savings will be greater, precisely how much will depend on the outside temperature, wall thickness and construction plus how many times the heating is switched on and off.

    • A typical U value of a plastered solid brick wall is 2.1 Watts/mtr2 K
    • Therefore the R value is 1/2.1 = 0.476m2 K/W
    • The BBA certificate for Thermal liner states an R value of 0.0821 mtr2 K/W
    • The total R value for the wall with thermal liner is 0.476 + 0.0821 = 0.5581mtr2 K/W
    • This can be converted back to a U value; 1/ 0.5581 = l.79 W/mtr2K
    • As a result by applying Wallrock Thermal Liner to solid walls the U value is reduced from 2.1 to 1.79 W/mtr2 K
     
    In conclusion, by applying Wallrock Thermal Liner to a solid wall the standing heat loss can be reduced by 15%.
  • Condensation forms on walls when room air at a significantly different temperature comes into contact with them, in much the same way as condensation forms on a glass containing a cool drink.

    Condensation helps to create the perfect breeding ground for unhealthy mould spores to grow and flourish with the tell-tale black growth often forming in the coldest areas of the room such as corners and areas around windows or external doors. Mould spores can be especially hazardous to allergy sufferers.

    Thermally efficient wallpapers hold more of the heat energy from the room’s air at the wall surface helping to combat the conditions which promote condensation forming and mould growing.

  • Follow the instructions and apply the liner directly to a surface pre-coated with Thermal Liner Adhesive.

    Once dry, any gaps at seams can be filled with flexible filler and the surface painted.

    Alternatively, wallpaper can be applied directly to the surface. We strongly recommend a ‘Paste-The-Wall’ type of wallpaper.
