THE KNOWLEDGE TO PRODUCE SOLUTIONS The Problem Over the last few decades energy efficiency and heat loss has become an important criteria in the designing of buildings. This has increased demand for laminates used in roofs, floors and walls Insulating external walls on the inside-closer to the heat source than exterior or cavity insulation-means fast reflection of heat into the room, which is especially important in our unpredictable climate and where intermittent heating systems are in use. The Solution The A.Proctor Group has acquired Plusboard Insulation Ltd which was established in 1976 in...

CONTENTS The Importance of Thermal Insulation The Importance of Thermal Insulation - Why Styrofoam? An Introduction to Thermal Laminates Preferred Details Technical Details Winter Condensation Risk Analysis Objective of Technical Guide This Technical Guide offers good advice on the specification of thermal laminate systems. By adopting the practical measures given in this Technical Guide, the design and build team can reduce the risks of cold bridging in both traditional and timber frame buildings.

THE IMPORTANCE OF THERMAL INSULATION The Problem When designing any building whether domestic or commercial, the designer must take into consideration the thermal performance of the building and any associated risks of condensation. These two areas are very important to ensure the client’s comfort in the future. The location of the insulation whether external, cavity (new build) or internal is part of this process. The following benefits are true of all of the thermal laminates supplied by The A. Proctor Group. The use of laminates in construction has long been established and their benefits well...

THE IMPORTANCE OF THERMAL INSULATION Why Styrofoam? Styrofoam, the extruded polystyrene foam material developed by DOW is much more than a remarkably effective thermal insulant. It has a unique combination of physical and chemical characteristics that make it a key component within a wide variety of today’s high performance composite structures. Styrofoam is lightweight yet exceptionally strong, safe in use, stable in sustained hostile environments and capable of being precision engineered. It contributes rigidity, durability, manageability, high strengthto-weight ratios and thermal performance....

AN INTRODUCTION TO THERMAL LAMINATES Walls Plusboard Styrofoam/plasterboard laminate, Plusboard, was developed as the answer to the need for high-quality internal wall insulation. It is applied to the inner wall of traditional or timber frame buildings using conventional techniques. The thickness of insulant required can be varied to meet the U-value required with different construction materials. We also manufacture using polyurethane foam (PUR), polyisocyanurate (PIR), and expanded polystyrene (EPS). Although no other foam has the rigidity, moisture resistance and easy-handling of Styrofoam,...

WINTER CONDENSATION RISK ANALYSIS Tecline The A. Proctor Group has a dedicated Technical Department which can deal with installation details, view drawings for approval and give specialist advice on the correct use of the A. Proctor Group products. The service also includes U-Value calculations and Condensation Risk Analysis’. This computer analysis allows the specifier or contractor to view where, if any, condensation risks would be and whether this will cause potential problems in a given roof construction on any particular project. Determining the U-value Construction Type (Typical Example)...
