100mm Xtratherm XT/CWP Cavity Wall Plus is an easy to install tongue and groove jointing polyisocyanurate (PIR) rigid insulation board with a low emissivity foil facings, used for traditional masonry partial fill cavity walls.
XT/CWP Cavity Wall Plus (T&G) is the best solution when building traditional masonry walls to the highest thermal standards whilst maintaining a residual cavity, offering excellent protection from wind driven rain.
The lower Lambda (thermal conductivity) of 0.021 W/mK improves U-Values and meets Zero Carbon standards, proving an excellent choice for passive and low energy builds.
Partial Fill Cavity Wall Plus (T&G) builds to a system thanks to its engineered tongue and grooved joints and pre-formed corners, ensuring insulation continuity and minimisation of thermal bridging.
The low emissivity foil facings on the both sides of the insulation boards improves the thermal performance of the cavity wall.
The residual cavity offers an effective method of preventing wind-driven rain penetrating a wall from the outside.
A residual cavity is the air space that remains when Cavity Wall Plus is placed against the inner leaf of the cavity of a wall.
The recommended residual cavity width allowed is 50mm in accordance with BBA Agrément Certification 08/4613.
Xtratherm XT/CWP Insulation Boards are available in a standard tongue and groove 1200mm x 450mm cavity sheet.
Thin-R Plus XT/CWP is an effective solution in reducing the thermal transmittance (U-value) of external cavity walls with masonry inner and outer leaves.
Cavity Wall Plus Boards are suitable for use in new domestic and non-domestic buildings.
XT/CWP Xtratherm PIR achieves an A+ rating under the BRE Green Guide.

Xtratherm Thin-R Cavity Wall Plus XT/CWP Installation Guidelines:
· Under Eurocode 6/S.R. 325 it is recommended that no more than four courses of block are laid on the preceding skin before installation of the insulation.
· Ensure the wall is level and free of any protrusions before installing the insulation with all edges tightly interlocked.
· Mortar should be struck from the inner cavity face of the block to ensure mortar squeeze is minimised on the cavity side.
· The two courses of blockwork can then be built, ensuring the mortar is struck back from the cavity face to prevent mortar squeeze.
· Insert wall ties maximum 600mm centres one block course below DPC.
· Wall ties should incorporate retaining clips and be BBA approved.
· Secure cavity boards tight against inner leaf with retaining clip on wall ties.
· Boards should be installed with the tongue uppermost and joints should be tightly butted.
· Ensure a minimum 150mm overlap with the floor insulation.
· The receiving block should be plumb to provide a flat surface to accept the insulation.
· As with setting out, installation should commence from adjacent corners using the Cavity Wall Plus preformed corner boards.
· Alternate corner boards will achieve the offset break bonded pattern for the insulation.
· Maintain a 50mm residual cavity to suit all exposure zones.
· This may have to be increased to suit certain conditions (buildings above 12m, local authority regulations, exposure zones, etc.).
· Where the cavity is obstructed, a minimum 25mm residual cavity should always be maintained and in this case, extra consideration should be given to fixings and weatherproofing.
· Place wall ties at maximum 900mm x 450mm centres, securing with a minimum of 3 wall ties per board.
· Ensure block joints are fully bonded with unbroken mortar.
· Fix wall ties 225mm vertically and 150mm horizontally from the face of unbonded jambs.
· Ensure wall ties and cavities are kept clean of mortar.
· Wall ties should be sloped downwards towards the outer leaf.
· A cavity board should be used to keep the cavity clean.
· Cavity Wall Plus corner boards and cavity closers may be fitted to provide robust detailing.
· Newly erected masonry should be protected to prevent the mortar being washed out of the joints by rain.
· Walls should be prevented from becoming saturated by covering the top of the wall with waterproof sheets; this is particularly important to minimise the incidence of efflorescence and lime bloom.
· When any working platform is not in use, the inner board should be turned away from the wall to prevent the splashing of the wall face.

We can help to calculate price per m2 or linear meter (one meter in length) cost, please just contact us via phone 02081910776, email or live chat. Alternatively, you can work it out yourself quickly and easily: to get cost per meter square please divide price shown in orange area by ''Required area (m2)'' Example price of £28.80 divided by board coverage 2.88m2 = cost of £10.00 per m2.
No matter whether you choose a local installer or a national company, there’s a few tips to help you find the right installer for your home insulation improvements, such as asking for recommendations and making sure that they’re part of a certification scheme. This makes sure that they have the right skills and standards of workmanship to carry out the installation, and you can be sure that they know exactly what they are doing.
4 TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST INSULATION INSTALLER
1. Thermal inspection picture in portfolio
It’s worth seeing a installer’s previous work. There’s no harm asking if you can see any properties nearby that they’ve installed insulation in. Best way would be to see Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspections. Thermal cameras spot small, but key changes in temperature in different areas of a house, identifying problematic areas that the human eye never could and some that a visual inspection could only hypothesize.
Along with checking recommendations and previous work, finding reviews online can often be a great way to find out if they provide a good service or not. However, it’s best not to solely rely on reviews you may find or review websites, as there’s no controlling who writes them.
3. Compare prices
Comparing prices will also ensure companies can’t take advantage of you and give you a fair price.
4. Word of Mouth
The best way to find a great insulation installer is through recommendations. Make sure you ask friends and family. They will most likely give you their honest opinion and can tell you from first hand experience.
Whether you require a wall, cladding, external wall, loft or floor insulation fitted, you can find and hire your local insulation installers from popular UK web pages. A simple internet search will return thousands of potential installers near your area.
We are the stockist of construction materials and related products for both trade and DIY from most recognizable brands in the UK like Cordek, RCM, Promat, Rockwool, Isover, Celotex, Xtratherm, Ursa, Low-E, Cedral, Kingspan, Dufaylite, British Gypsum, K-rend, Ecotherm, Iko enertherm, Kay-Metzeler, Terrawool to allow you to complete your insulation job on time at competitive prices and the highest standards.
