RIR Insulated Plasterboard / British Gypsum Gyproc ThermaLine PIR
Gyproc ThermaLine PIR is a highly efficient PIR foam and 12.5mm Gyproc plasterboard. It is constructed from rigid closed cell PIR foam will last the building lifetime with no shrinkage or degrading. The multi-layer membrane on both faces of the insulation controls moisture and because it provides more thermal performance at lower thicknesses than standard laminates it also saves room space or can be used to provide higher thermal standards at the same thickness.
- Thermal Conductivity: Polyisocyanurate foam 0.022 W/mK
- Incorporates 12.5mm Gyproc WallBoard to provide additional fire and acoustic performance.
- Backed with pale yellow Polyisocyanurate foam with a 2 x vapour control barrier.
- Complies with EN 13950.
- Gyproc WallBoards are factory bonded to the chosen insulation and are standard 1200mm x 2400mm sizes for ease of use and transportation.
- Varying thicknesses to enable installation on a wide variety of existing structures and surfaces.
What’s the difference between Room In Roof Insulation and Loft Insulation?
A Room In Roof is part of your normal living space that is built into your roof and it must be accessed by a fixed staircase not a ladder. There are some other rules about what is, and what isn’t defined as Room In Roof, such as the height of any walls and other general features of construction. If you live in a property that has a ‘Dormer’ or a ‘Loft Conversion’ chances are it will be classed as a Room In Roof and you could qualify for heavily subsidised or 100% FREE insulation. The Loft section is the remaining space behind the walls of your living space.
Loft & Room In Roof spaces are usually insulated at the same time. Generally, Loft spaces are insulated with Loft Insulation rolls at floor or ceiling level and the Room In Roof is insulated with specialist insulated plasterboards so that it can be decorated. The insulation plasterboards create an insulated protective layer keeping the warm air inside.
