75mm Unilin SR/CW is used as a partial fill insulation in external cavity walls with masonry inner and outer leaves, in new domestic and commercial buildings, offering protection from wind driven rain.
Unilin Safe-R SR/CW is manufactured to EN 13166 by Unilin Insulation with certified lambda (thermal conductivity) of 0.020 W/mK and Euroclass D-s1 d0 fire classification.
SR/CW partial fill cavity wall insulation is the solution of choice to achieve the lower U-Values asked for under the building regulations whilst maintaining a residual cavity as a protection from wind driven rain.
Partial fill masonry walls are the predominant construction method for traditional buildings, SR/CW phenolic insulation offers a solution when lower U-Values are demanded.
The high performance to thickness ratio of SR/CW allows for excellent U-Values to be achieved within traditional constructions without dramatically increasing the overall width of the wall.
Using SR/CW allows the residual cavity to be maintained, providing an effective method of preventing moisture ingress.
SR/CW is durable, rot proof and sufficiently stable to remain effective as cavity insulation for the life of the building.
Unilin Safe-R SR/CW is a cheaper alternative to Kingspan Kooltherm K108 Cavity Board.
The recommended residual cavity width required is 50mm in accordance with BBA agrément certification.

Unilin SR/CW Partial Fill Cavity Board Installation Guidelines:
· Blocks should be laid in accordance with relevant standards and ensure that mortar is robust enough to avoid slumping at joints and allow for the correct positioning of wall ties.
· It is recommended that no more than four courses of block are laid on the preceding skin before installation of the insulation.
· This allows for wall ties to be inserted accurately and without bending and thus distorting the physical characteristics of the wall ties.
· 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 minimized 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 Certificate Agrément approved.
· Secure cavity boards tight against inner leaf with retaining clip on wall ties.
· 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.
· Stagger the board joints to create an offset brick bonded pattern.
· Maintain a 50mm residual cavity to suit all exposure zones.
· In isolated circumstances where the cavity is obstructed, a minimum 25mm residual cavity should always be maintained and extra consideration should be given to fixings and weatherproofing.
· Any reduction in cavity width should be agreed with Building Control.
· 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.
· 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.
· ACDs must be followed to ensure that installation is in accordance with current Building Regulations and accounted for in the energy calculation.

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.
