How to help you reduce noise and stay warm this winter.

We hate to say it, but it looks like summer is finally over and winter is coming in thick and fast so, let’s talk insulation. Regardless of the time of year, insulation is a huge priority for any build.

We have spoken to Isover to see how we can help keep your customers nice and toasty this year whilst making sure you meet all your acoustic building regulations.

Quiet as a mouse…

Isover RD Party Wall Roll is a glass wool acoustic insulation used to reduce the passage of sound across a party wall, helping to meet the requirements of Building Regulations (England & Wales) Approved Document (AD) E and (Scotland) Technical Standard Section 5.

But what are the key benefits to your customers?

  • Thermal bypass solution – Meets the full requirement to deliver zero U-value for party walls as defined in Building Regulations (Approved Document L1A, Table 3).
  • Saves time and cost – Removes the requirement for pre-completion testing and parge coats prior to drylining.
  • Robust Detail compliant – Proprietary component of three Robust Detail constructions (E-WM-17, E-WM-20 and E-WM-24) and conforms to the generic full-fill mineral wool specification.
  • Recycled content – Manufactured from up to 86% recycled glass.

Let’s get toasty….
