Product Description

Unilin (previously Xtratherm) Under Floor Insulation Boards – when installed within a floor structure, will significantly improve the U-value of new or existing floors. Thin-R Underfloor XT/UF has high compressive strength and closed cell structure, it provides high moisture resistance which makes it the ultimate solution for insulating floors. It is also suitable for underfloor heating and use in pitched roofs.

Unilin (previously Xtratherm) Floor Insulation Key features:

  • High Compressive Strength
  • Suitable for Underfloor Heating
  • Also suitable for pitched roofs
  • Perimeter Strips for Robust Detailing
  • Reduced Insulation Thickness
  • Low Emissivity Foil Facings
  • 2.4 metres x 1.2 metres (8 feet x 4 feet)

The floor in any building is an area of considerable downward heat loss when not properly insulated. XT/UF will significantly improve the U-value of new and existing floors.

Thin-R Underfloor XT/UF is lightweight, easy to install and combines high compressive strength with low thermal conductivity, providing a high performance solution for floor insulation.

Thermal conductivity is 0.022 W/m²·k (BS EN 13165:2008)

  • High thermal performance
  • Closed cell structure
  • High moisture resistance
  • High compressive strength
  • Thermal Resistance (R-Values):
    • 20mm is 0.909m2 K/W
    • 25mm is 1.10m2 K/W
    • 40mm is 1.80m2 K/W
    • 50mm is 2.25m2 K/W

In an era of ever-rising energy costs and increased environmental consciousness, the significance of effective insulation cannot be overstated. Among the various insulation options available, insulation boards have emerged as a popular choice due to their exceptional thermal and acoustic properties. These versatile panels offer a myriad of benefits, from energy efficiency and cost savings to improved comfort and reduced environmental impact.

Benefits of Insulation Boards

1. Enhanced Energy Efficiency

Insulation boards are lauded for their excellent thermal insulation capabilities. By effectively reducing heat transfer between indoor and outdoor environments, these boards help maintain a consistent temperature within your home or building. This translates to reduced reliance on heating and cooling systems, leading to substantial energy savings over time. As a result, insulation boards contribute to a smaller carbon footprint while also easing the strain on your wallet.

2. Improved Acoustic Insulation

Beyond temperature regulation, insulation boards offer impressive acoustic insulation properties. They can significantly reduce the transmission of sound, creating a quieter and more comfortable living or working environment. This is particularly valuable for spaces that require privacy or noise control, such as offices, bedrooms, and recording studios.

3. Moisture Resistance

Insulation boards often feature moisture-resistant properties, which can be advantageous in areas prone to humidity or dampness. By preventing moisture intrusion and condensation, these boards help mitigate the risks of mold growth and structural damage, contributing to the longevity of your property.

4. Space Efficiency

Insulation boards are relatively thin compared to traditional insulation materials like batts or rolls. This slim profile allows for efficient use of space, making them ideal for retrofitting existing buildings or for situations where space is at a premium.

5. Versatility in Application

From roofs and walls to floors and ceilings, insulation boards can be applied to various surfaces. They are available in different types and densities to suit specific requirements. Some are designed for exterior use, while others are suitable for interior applications. This versatility ensures that insulation boards can be tailored to match the needs of a wide range of projects.

Installing these –  Step-by-Step Guide

Proper installation is crucial to maximize the benefits of insulation boards. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the process:

1. Gather Supplies and Safety Equipment

Before you begin, ensure you have all the necessary supplies, including insulation boards, adhesive, cutting tools, measuring tape, and safety equipment such as gloves, goggles, and a mask.

2. Prepare the Surface

Clean the surface where the insulation boards will be installed. Make sure it’s dry, free from debris, and structurally sound.

3. Measure and Cut

Measure the dimensions of the area where the insulation boards will be placed. Use a cutting tool (such as a utility knife) to cut the boards to the required size. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for cutting and handling.

4. Apply Adhesive

Apply a suitable adhesive to the back of the insulation board. The adhesive type will depend on the surface you’re attaching the board to and the manufacturer’s recommendations.

5. Install the Boards

Press the adhesive-coated side of the insulation board firmly against the surface. Make sure it’s aligned properly and sticks securely. Use gentle pressure to ensure even contact.

6. Seal the Joints

To maximise insulation effectiveness, seal any gaps or joints between insulation boards with an appropriate sealant. This prevents air leakage and maintains the integrity of the insulation.

7. Finish the Surface

Depending on the application, you might need to finish the surface by adding drywall, cladding, or another appropriate covering. Follow standard construction practices for finishing.

Insulation boards have revolutionized the way we approach energy efficiency and comfort in our homes and buildings. Their exceptional thermal and acoustic properties, coupled with their versatility and space-saving attributes, make them a smart choice for both new construction and retrofit projects. By following proper installation procedures, you can harness the full potential of insulation boards and enjoy the myriad benefits they bring, from energy savings to improved living conditions. As we continue to prioritize sustainability and cost-effectiveness, insulation boards are a vital tool in creating more efficient and comfortable living spaces.
