Why Insulated Plasterboards?
Insulated Plasterboards are a two-in-one product that can improve the thermal quality of the building whilst providing a finishing material for the walls and roof.
Save your time and money! Handling, cutting, and installing can be applied to one product instead of two, meaning a quicker turnaround time and less waste.
With a low thermal conductivity of just 0.022W/mK, less heat is allowed to pass through the walls and ceilings, keeping your heat where it should be – in your home!
Whilst you save you money on your bills, you also create a more energy efficient environment by reducing climate change and global warming levels by reducing heat loss.
Use Insulated Plasterboards in your new build, refurbishment project, or to upgrade current building regulation standards. This versatile product has many benefits.
The most popular Insulated plasterboard size is 37.5mm.
How do you cut and install Insulated Plasterboards?
Insulated Plasterboards can be cut by first measuring and marking the boards to size and cutting with a fine-toothed saw. They can also be cut by scoring the insulation side with a sharp blade, cutting through to the plasterboard paper. Then snap the board over a hard end and score the other side of the board.
Protect gear such as gloves, masks, and goggles should be worn when cutting insulated plasterboards to prevent irritation caused by the material fibres.
Please note this is a guide only. Always consult a building professional before insulation your domestic or non-domestic building. Installing the incorrect insulation materials or using an incorrect installation method can be a timely and costly mistake.
Dot and Dab method – Cut the boards to size making sure they are cut 15mm shorter than the top to bottom length of the wall and they are cut to fit around outlets and fixings. Mix and apply the required adhesive around the room to line with the board’s perimeter and centres. Take into consideration uneven walls and put less or more adhesive where required. Press the boards onto wall and pat into place using your hands to avoid damaging the boards. Use a spirit level to check the boards are even. See video below.
Mechanically Fixing method – Fix timber battens around the ceiling and floor level of the walls and horizontally around the room at 600mm centres. Be sure to cut around all openings and fixings such as windows and plug sockets. Fix the boards onto the battens making sure screws go through the boards and only halfway into the battens. Join the boards at the centre of the battens. See the video below.
