Recticel responds rapidly to provide insulation for large-scale technology park

21 Oct 11 The ability to provide a cost-effective, high quality insulation product on a large scale has helped Recticel secure its biggest order in Scotland this year.

The Stoke-based insulation manufacturer was chosen by Miller Roofing to provide 7000m2 of Eurothane Eurodeck insulation board to Hamilton Technology Park, a multi-use office and retail park set in 31 hectares of land between Hamilton and East Kilbride, Scotland

The135mm Eurodeck boards will be used to provide insulation for a number of office and retail buildings on the Technology Park.  Eurodeck features a rigid foam core faced on both sides with a multi-layer coated aluminium foil and is designed for use under mechanically fixed single-ply membrane waterproofing systems. It also provides long-term resistance against rot and a reduced risk of condensation.

Alan Hilditch at Miller Roofing comments:  “We were very pleased with Recticel’s ability to respond to our requirements and produce a large quantity of high quality insulation product in such a short space of time. The speed of which they fulfilled the large order allowed the project to progress without any delay. This will help speed the construction schedule, reduce the costs involved and help us achieve our planned completion date.”

“This project was a challenge for us in terms of product turnaround,” adds Recticel’s Commercial Director, Chris Hall. “However, we were careful to identify the customer’s specific needs and then react quickly and efficiently to deliver the products as required “

Lightweight and easy to handle, the tough and resilient Eurothane Eurodeck boards can be easily cut on site using a knife or fine-toothed saw. Once correctly installed they will withstand loads associated with pedestrian maintenance traffic on the roof. Eurothane Eurodeck has excellent compressive strength which typically exceeds 150KPa.
