    Isover's comprehensive guide to their HVAC products and solutions. Excellent technical information.

    Isovers comprehensive guide to their Technical Insulation products and solutions, both HVAC and Marine.

    PFC Corofil was the first manufacturer of passive fire products, leading the way with its attention to detail and technical know-how. Their products help maintain the safety of public, private, commercial and historic buildings worldwide. This has been proven time and again with the list of prestigious contracts that are now contained in their portfolio.

    Now, as then, all firestop products are tested to meet stringent test in not only the UK but in America and Europe.

    PFC Corofil can offer a full package of penetration seals and cavity barriers to meet today's demanding specifications. With this in mind, PFC's quality of material and workmanship are never compromised.

    The attached Product Guide (right) features PFC's most recent product information. To view Encon's PFC Corofil product offering click here.

    Product, application and technical data guide to Rockwool's H&V Technical Insulation product range

    Rockwool's comprehensive guide to their Firestopping "Firepro" range of products

    The ROCKWOOL FIREPRO range of products provides firestopping and fire resistance throughout the whole construction process; intended to make buildings and their inhabitants safer in the event of fire.

    Beyond ROCKWOOL insulation’s inherent fire resistant qualities, their specialist range of products help architects, contractors and developers conform to current fire regulations.

    The range of fire resistance products cater for most general purpose and specialty building applications:

    • Structural protection
    • Penetration seals
    • Joints
    • Cavity barriers
    • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning
    • Process pipes

    Our guide to using ROCKWOOL insulation to comply with BS 5422:2009. The required insulation thicknesses are given for a range of applications and pipe sizes.

    Introduction

    Rockwool have produced comprehensive guidance as to the main changes to Part L 2010. Download the brochure "An Introduction to Part L 2010" (and it’s supporting documents) which covers information on new build and existing residential and non-residential buildings plus the party wall bypass effect. 

     

    •  ‘Design’ submissions are now part of the Regulation – submitting a design stage calculation and specification list to Building Control Bodies will be mandatory before building starts. Previously only the As-built calculation was a requirement.
    • Party walls – Plus their associated thermal bypass heat losses will be included for the first time in the calculations. You will need to insulate and seal your party wall cavity or use solid walls just to match the notional building.
    •  Thermal bridges – ‘Accredited Details’ scheme aimed at ensuring that developers only claim enhanced benefits in their SAP modelling by using approved accredited construction details which have actually been used (0.08 for accredited construction details is no longer an option).
    • Swimming Pools – New Indoor swimming pools will require a U-value for the basin walls and floor which should be no worse than 0.25W/m²K
    •  Air Permeability – Further improvements on air tightness. Part L 2010 now requires double the number of pressure tests to meet compliance. Generally a value between 5.0 & 7.0 m3/(hm2) will need to be achieved. 15.0m3/(hm2) can still be used in small developments but will tend to require improving further the performance of thermal envelope.
    • Thermal Mass – The heat capacity of the external and internal building fabric will be used in the calculation of TER & DER results. You will now have to define the internal walls, floors and ceilings along with any party walls. Increasing the effective thermal mass reduces the need for heating and cooling. However the rules or calculating heat capacity mean that items such as internal drylining, thermal lining and lightweight constructions will reduce your effective thermal mass.
    •  Fabric limits – Maximum area weighted U-values have been improved from the 2006 standards. The area weighted U-values are maximum values and unlikely to be low enough to comply with CO2 emissions requirements.

    Key Points

    • System for comparing construction products for ignitability, flame spread, heat release, smoke production and propensity for producing flaming droplets/particles etc.
    • Accepted by all European Union States but not mandatory or applied in the UK
    • Products achieving A1 classification, under the Euroclass system, are defined as non-combustible in UK Regulations.

    Fire Safety Legislation

    The implementation of a single classification system across the EU member states has introduced a common method for comparing the reaction to fire performance of construction products.

    Testing is standardised through the use of BS EN 13501-1 ‘Fire classification of construction products and building elements’.

    For insulation products intended to be used in wall and ceiling constructions, there are seven reaction to fire classification levels available A1, A2, B, C, D, E and F., additional classifications provide information on a product’s tendency to produce smoke and flaming droplets or particles.

    Rockwool stone wool insulation is classified as A1 which is the highest ranking of the reaction to fire classifications. Non-combustible in nature, Rockwool can withstand temperatures in excess of 1000°C without melting.
