Superglass Handy Pack 44 is a lightweight, non-combustible glass mineral wool insulation roll. The flexible roll is perforated at 2 x 570mm & 3 x 380mm to allow easy installation between common joist spacings and minimum on-site cutting and waste.

Superglass Handy Pack 44 is mainly used to provide thermal and acoustic insulation in lofts/cold roofs. However, it can be used in a number of other applications where a lightweight glass mineral wool product is required.

Thermal Performance

Handy Pack 44 has a thermal conductivity of 0.044W/mK.

Fire Performance

Superglass products are classified as Euroclass A1 to BS EN 13501-1.
Superglass products being non-combustible will not contribute towards a fire load.

Environment

Superglass products have zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and zero Global Warming Potential (GWP). The products are also CFC and HCFC free.

Recycled Content

Superglass products are manufactured from up to 84% recycled glass bottles which would otherwise go to landfill.

Quality

Superglass products are manufactured in accordance with BSI Quality Assurance Standard BS EN ISO 9001:2012.

Standards

Superglass products are manufactured in accordance with BS EN13162:2015 and BS EN13172:2015 for Factory made mineral wool products.

Durability

Superglass products are non-hygroscopic, will not rot, degrade or sustain vermin and will not encourage the growth of mould, bacteria or fungi.

Vapour Resistance

Superglass products offer negligible vapour resistance allowing vapour to pass freely through the insulation.

Handling & Storage

Superglass products are easy to handle, cut and install. The products are supplied compression packed in polythene to provide short term protection only. For long term protection, the product must be stored indoors or under a waterproof covering in order to protect from weather damage.

The products should not be left permanently exposed to the elements.

Certification

CE Marked to BS EN 13162:2015

The Beginners Guide to Pipe Insulation: Flexible Foams

Next up in the series we are doing on pipe insulation is "flexible foams"; a category that includes polyethylene and expanded nitrile rubber.


Polyethylene Pipe Insulation
Climaflex pipe insulation is the UK's leading brand for polyethylene pipe insulation. This is the grey foam that most people are familiar with, the kind you would traditionally find in garden centres for example. Polyethylene is the cheapest, widely available product in the market. People very often wrongly assume cheap means poor quality, this is not the case with a brand such as Climaflex. It has a thermal conductivity of 0.034 W/m.K at 0°C which is broadly equal to that of any other flexible foam, and it also has a much higher "μ factor" than other foams, making it more resistant to moisture ingress. These facotrs make it ideal for use around the home, being easy to work with and providing good insulation. 
The material can be purchased in 1m and 2m lengths, and is available in wall thicknesse…

The Beginners Guide To Pipe Insulation: Getting to grip with the basics

Our Beginners Guide series of blogs will look at the common areas of pipe insulation lagging that you will want to look at when choosing your product. This guide will be of most interest to the DIY installers, but some of our later guides will cover more complex products and areas of application.

One of the things we get asked about a lot is what the dimensions quoted for pipe insulation actually mean. You will always see three measurements quoted when describing pipe insulation; Wall Thickness, Bore Size and Length.

In the below diagram, A is the "Bore" and B is the "Wall".

Wall thickness is very simply how much insulation you have; so for example if you have 13mm Wall pipe insulation, then that means you have 13mm of insulation on either side of your pipe. This thickness is very often one of the most important part of your decision; too thin and you might not get the results you are looking for but too thick and it might not fit between your pipe and the wall.

Frost protection for domestic pipes

With the cold weather approaching we thought it would be a good idea to touch on how best to protect your pipes from frost this winter.

When dealing with frost protection on pipes inside a building your aim with insulating them is to delay the onset of freezing for as long as possible; it is not possible to guarantee a pipe will not freeze by insulation alone. The better the insulation, and the thicker the insulation, the longer you will give yourself. Under normal circumstances you aim to give yourself about 8-10 hours protection against sub zero temperatures. With pipes inside a home this is usually long enough to be sure the pipes will not freeze.


Ice formation inside the pipes will lead to an increase in pressure. As the water tries to flow this pressure will increase, and eventually will lead to the pipes bursting. A burst pipe can cause a lot of problems, not least of which is a lot of damage to your property and a lot of expense incurred.

Water regulations state that all water …
