Wallrock KV600 Thermal Liner
Wallrock KV600 Thermal Liner has been added to our product range. To put simply, it’s a thicker version of the traditional Wallrock Thermal Liner. At 4 mm thick it’s 20% thicker (versus 3.2 mm). We aren’t going to write in detail about the technology behind it (read more here), but here is a quick reminder of the top level benefits based on the Thermal Liner (3.2 mm thick):
- it reduces room warm up time by up to 65% and can offer up to 36% energy saving
- provides noise insulation: aw=0.02
- helps with fighting condensation and mould
KV600 Thermal Liner is 4 mm thick (25% thicker than standard Wallrock Thermal Liner), but from our unofficial tests we know that the thermal improvements are in the region of 15 to 20% when compared to its skinnier brother. The image below shows the difference in thickness between the two products. It’s still made using the Fibreliner (which you paint / wallpaper with paste-the-wall type of wallpaper) and the thermal backing, which goes onto the wall.
When to use it
KV600 Thermal Liner can be used in any situation where there are problems with cold rooms / walls, excessive condensation and black mould (same as the standard thermal liner), but it comes to its own when the issues are more serious and you do need the extra performance from what’s on the wall.
Please note that the roll is 15 m long and 1 m wide (10 m long and 75 cm wide for the standard thermal liner) so you get twice the coverage.
The width of the roll offers benefits and challenges. Because it’s 1 m wide you’ll have less joints and the job goes much faster on flat surfaces. At the same time, because it’s 1 m wide, it’s more difficult to handle and certainly more difficult to work with when applying it to the ceiling (if you were insulating the ceiling as well as the walls you could use standard Wallrock Thermal Liner on the ceiling to make the job easier – remember, the finish is the same).
