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
The latest addition to the ‘5000’ series product range, Celotex RS5000 has successfully tested to BS 8414-2:2005, meets the criteria set out in BR 135, and therefore is acceptable for use in buildings above 18 metres in height.
Suitable for use in domestic and non-domestic applications for either new build or refurbishment projects, Celotex RS5000 can be used in warm steel frame constructions or fixed directly to masonry for overcladding applications.
Supported by LABC Approval, Celotex RS5000 leverages Celotex’ pioneering thermal performance of 0.021 W/mK as well as offering Class O fire performance.
“Celotex RS5000 is the first PIR board to successfully test to BS 8414 making it acceptable for use in buildings above 18 metres in height. As a company, we are always looking to innovate and develop solutions for new applications. RS5000 will allow contractors, architects and specifiers to use premium performance PIR in externally cladded walls for the first time in high-rise constructions” Jon Roper, Product Manager
With the addition of Celotex RS5000 to an unrivalled PIR insulation product range, Celotex products achieve better U-values with thinner solutions.
