  • Provide insulation for UK government program to upgrade
    insulation in public housing apartment units.
  • The insulation needed to improve the units´ U-values to save energy and reduce carbon emissions.
  • The insulation also needed to be thin to minimize encroachment on living space in small rooms.
  • Other requirements included water resistance, noise abatement, breathability, and easy installation.
  • The Proctor Group developed a double layer of Spaceloft™ 9251 laminated to a building facing board.
  • The insulation panel met the functional requirements with a total thickness of only 30 mm.
  • Panels were easy to install, simply screwed onto the existing wall with no framing needed.
  • The Spaceloft 9251 solution cost-effectively met all energy targets. (Details below.)
  • The Spaceloft 9251 solution was three times thinner than the nearest installed competitive solution due to framing requirments.
  • Installation was 50% faster than the nearest competitive solution.
  • Overall, the Spaceloft 9251 was the best space/cost solution.
U-Value and Energy Savings From Installation of Spaceloft 9251*
  • U-value reduction: 0.28 W/m2k, (0.63 - 0.35 W/m2K), a 44% reduction
    Energy reduction: 900 kWhr/yr
  • Carbon emmission reduction: 400 kg/yr
