Kingspan Insulation’s Kooltherm and Therma products have been installed as part of the restoration of a dilapidated church, featured on Channel 4’s Restoration Man series.
St Peter’s Church originally built in 1874, was constructed on a steeply sloping pedestrian hill leading down to the main harbour in the picturesque Brixham fishing village.
Neil Worrell of Hotel Planning Ltd said: “Insulating the Church to current standards was always going to be a challenge, we overcame this by lining the whole of the basement wall area (over 100 m2) with 60 mm thick Kingspan Kooltherm K18 Insulated Plasterboard. This really helped us because it was after we had waterproofed the external walls and it could be simply fitted together and fixed back to battens on the external walls. The lower part of the basement was raised up with a fully insulated floor using 125 mm thick Kingspan Thermafloor TF70 boards.
Kingspan Thermapitch TP10 was used for all of the church roofs, on the main church it was used on the outside of the roof structure, and on the ‘rear’ roof areas it was used within the roof structure.
All Kooltherm and Therma products deliver outstanding performances with thermal conductivities as low as 0.020 W/m.K and 0.022 W/m.K respectively and are amongst the most thermally efficient insulation products commonly used.
