Insulating older properties that do not have cavities has proved to be a problem. Alternative external insulation systems remain expensive to install while internal insulation systems have not been desirable for a number of reasons including the required adjustments to fixtures and fittings, loss of valuable space and the considerable disruption involved. There is now a solution that addresses all these problems.
Ultrotherm is a thin-layer (12mm) thermal insulation system primarily intended for low-disruption, and sympathetic insulation of properties with solid wall construction. It is installed internally and provides an insulation solution without a significant increase in wall thickness. Once installed, Ultrotherm is plastered using traditional skills and materials to provide a 40% improvement in the ‘U’ value of a solid 9″ brick wall.
Ultrotherm can be considered wherever re-plastering work is being undertaken. It provides a cost effective upgrade in refurbishment work and reduces the likelihood of cracking to plaster finishes.
Abbott Damp Proofing offer a 10-year guarantee on installations of Ultrotherm.
