Update – IMPORTANT: On 23 June 2017, in view of the focus on components of rainscreen cladding systems, Celotex stopped the supply of Celotex RS5000, pending further clarity. RS5000 remains suspended. Celotex do not currently supply a solution for buildings over 18 metres.
In December 2017 we identified a compliance issue relating to our calculation and testing of the lambda value of products in our 4000 and 5000 range and the Crown-Bond and Crown-Fix products within Crown Flat Roofing range. Material such as product downloads & specifications is for information only.
On 30 January 2018, Celotex made a further public announcement in relation to the full system testing of RS5000 pursuant to BS8414:2. The announcement can be read here
Targeting the roofing, cladding and insulation industry ranging through specification to completion and everything in between, Celotex attended the RCI Show 2014 bringing an impactful stand and a great Celotex team to assist the visitors of the event.
Research from Unity Media decided the time was right to organise a brand new show and one that the roofing, cladding and insulation industry deserves. Taking this research on board, RCI Magazine decided to organise an event specifically for these industries and credit to them.
Come Wednesday, the opening morning, Ricoh Arena was at full capacity with some of the industry’s leading specialists in roofing, cladding and insulation all exhibiting with some very impressive stands on offer. Celotex were raring to go with the team all briefed and excited by the prospects of day one at the RCI Show. The day brought some great conversations with many enquiries about our latest rainscreen cladding product, Celotex RS5000, which we were able to showcase in a brand new life-sized build up installation, seen alongside two of our other large installations for the pitched roof and cavity wall. People were also able to pick up some literature and chat to our technical guys about detailed enquiries while nibbling on some sweets from our famous sweet cart. Either that or stocking up on sweets for Halloween on Friday…
Day two seemingly busier than the first, brought a large amount of interested visitors to the stand to find out about the Celotex products and services, and giving them an opportunity to grab some literature.
Over the course of the two days, the highlights from the Celotex stand included three separate presentations from Head of Technical, Rob Warren and Area Sales Manager, Jon Roper. The first presentation of the three was titled, ‘Celotex Part L 2013, Simplifying Compliance’. It featured a look in to the effect of Part L 2013 on domestic and non-domestic buildings, its comparison and similarity to Part L 2010 and a few case studies with reference to compliance. The second presentation from Jon Roper looked at ‘Rainscreen Cladding Solutions’ and featured an in depth introduction to our latest addition to the 5000 series, Celotex RS5000. Finally, Rob Warren finished off the seminar series with, ‘The Quest For Zero Carbon. Why does it matter?’ looking in to where we have been with Zero Carbon, where we are now and the uncertainty of the future. All three presentations were well attended and received positive feedback and applause so thank you to those that managed to come along.
For a first time event, the RCI Show provided a brilliant opportunity to catch up with some familiar faces and to also meet some people that have had no connection with Celotex before. It was great to see so many individuals passionate about the industry and we were grateful for the opportunity to share the enthusiasm.
