Celotex launches two new innovative products!
At our headquarters in Hadleigh, Suffolk, our growing team of insulation experts pride themselves in manufacturing innovative solutions for a range of applications in the construction industry. Over the past two years, we have introduced exciting new application solutions including Celotex RS5000, a rainscreen cladding product and more recently, in 2015, Celotex CF5000, our full fill cavity wall solution. We are also leading innovators with our services too, introducing the new and improved U-value Calculator as well as thermal bridging models to the Celotex Members Area.
Today, we announce the release of two new additions to our ‘best-in-class’ performance 0.021 W/mK lambda range. Celotex FI5000, a premium performance flooring solution suitable for concrete slab, beam and block, suspended timber and underfloor heating applications PLUS Celotex SL5000, a specialist concrete soffit liner solution. Both with enhanced thermal performance and installation benefits, saving time and money on-site.
So, with the introductions out of the way, let’s tell you a little more about these new product additions.
