Insulation is one of those ubiquitous techniques that is always around, always impinging on our work, social and domestic activities and yet for most of the time is hardly noticed. Insulation is a passive product, once installed it works efficiently, quietly and continually, usually out of sight enclosed within a structure, a casing or under cladding.
Insulation comes to the fore when new design of buildings, plant, equipment or production processes is being considered. It is at this stage that the right specification must be made, any shortfall in the thickness, or error in the type and application details will prove costly to rectify at a later date.
There are many reasons why professional engineers, architects and indeed laymen use insulation:
to comply with mandatory legislation i.e. Building Regulations or Standards;
to reduce heat loss/heat gain;
to reduce running costs;
to control process temperatures;
to control surface temperatures;
to reduce the risk of freezing;
to provide condensation control; and
or to reduce heating plant capacity
