Premier Insulation Solutions

Over the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed some changes in the insulation aisle at your local MKM branch. It’s all thanks to a new partnership between Kingspan Insulation and MKM, giving you easy access to a world of top class insulation products, covering virtually any application.

Kingspan Insulation have been developing and manufacturing insulation for over 40 years and take real pride in being able to deliver products with world-leading thermal performance, allowing you to install the thinnest possible insulation whilst still achieving the results you need.

MKM branches will stock the two most popular product ranges, Kingspan Therma and Kingspan Kooltherm. Both ranges feature rigid insulation boards with a fibre-free core, which are lightweight and can be easily cut to size with a sharp knife or fine-toothed saw.

Kingspan Therma products are designed for floor, wall and roof applications and offer excellent thermal conductivities of between 0.022-0.028 W/m.K, easily placing them amongst the more thermally efficient products on the market.

The premium Kingspan Kooltherm range achieves an even greater thermal performance, with outstanding thermal conductivities as low as 0.018 W/m.K, a market leading thermal performance for rigid boards.

To ensure you get the best possible results, Kingspan back all of their products with first class technical support designed around you. On Kingspan’s website, you’ll find a wealth of information about the complete product range, including installation guides and detailed technical data, along with everything you need to know about the current Building Regulations and Standards.

To make your job as easy as possible, you’ll also find a free online U-value calculator (www.uvalue-calculator.co.uk). After a few basic questions about your project, the calculator gives you clear guidance on the product and thickness needed to get the U-value you desire. All the calculations are approved under the BBA/TIMSA competency scheme, giving you real peace of mind that the results are correct. It couldn’t be simpler, and the new free app for Windows, Apple and Android devices means you can get instant calculations and thicknesses whilst you’re in store.

Over the next few weeks Kingspan will be publishing a series of handy how-to guides through the MKM blog. These will cover everything from flat roofs to cavity walls and will be full of tips and useful advice to make installations a breeze.
