What is Celotex GA4000?

Celotex GA4000 is a general purpose insulation board for floors, walls and roofs. With low emissivity foil facings, GA4000 is manufactured from rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) using a blend of blowing agents that have zero ozone depletion potential (zero ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP).

Is Celotex insulation fire proof?

Celotex FR5000 insulation board range is a Class ‘O’ fire rated PIR insulation. Importantly this product has an enhanced thermal and fire performance compared to standard foam insulation. With a low thermal conductivity of 0.021W/m K.

Does kingspan own Celotex?

Since 2012 Celotex had been owned by a French firm called Saint Gobain – a massive multinational corporation. The only product on the 18m and above market at that time was made by Celotex’s rivals, Kingspan, and they wanted to compete. They already had a product, an insulation named FR5000.

Is Celotex bad for your lungs?

So far there is nothing to suggest that celotex is toxic but small particles of anything in your lungs can’t be good.

What is Celotex made from?

The insulation, known as Celotex RS5000, was made from polyisocyanurate, which burns when exposed to heat and gives off toxic cyanide fumes. It has also emerged that a second combustible insulation material was used.

Are Celotex and kingspan the same?

Celotex and Kingspan are the names of manufacturers that offer very similar insulation products. The individual products will of course vary, both in terms of how they can be used and the size of each. Kingspan is a bit younger, but still has name value after 50 years in the industry.

What thickness Celotex do I need?

How big is a Celotex PIR insulation board?

Celotex GA4000 is an easy to install polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation board with excellent thermal performance, featuring a low emissivity foil facing. Available in thicknesses from 50mm to 100mm, it can be considered for roof, wall and floor applications.

What kind of foil is used in Celotex insulation?

It has long been at the heart of the Celotex product range providing the user with a range of thermal insulation solutions. With low emissivity foil facings, GA4000 is manufactured from rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) using a blowing agent that has zero ozone depletion potential (zero ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP).

What is the thermal conductivity of Celotex cw4000?

Excellent thermal performance with a thermal conductivity of 0.022 W/m.K, reducing the thickness of insulation required to hit the target U-value. Low emissivity foil facing provides improved thermal performance in sealed cavity air spaces, improving the achievable U-value.
