Acton

Project Scope

Chase insulations installed the insulation on this prestigious project in Acton London.

The specification was Kingspan phenolic insulation on all of the domestic and heating services which were fed from a central District boiler house.

Enhanced thicknesses were used such as 40 mm and 50 mm thick phenolic which presented a bit of a challenge on-site but we were able to install the insulation to a high standard frosty sprawling complex over the course of a year.

This is an excerpt from Kingspan's website regarding our installation of the insulation on the Acton Gardens project -

The project team was determined to make sure the homes were affordable to purchase and long-lasting. To accomplish this, a communal heat circulation network has been utilized instead of installing individual boilers within every property. To diminish heat distribution losses across this network, it was identified that 27,000 lm of Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation be used for heating and water service pipework. With a venerable thermal conductivity as low as 0.025 W/m·K (at +10°C mean), Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation is one of the most thermally compelling line protection items available. This astounding exhibition permitted pipework to be viably protected with a slimmer protection thickness than would somehow have been conceivable. The merchandise was introduced in a 50 mm thickness on the warmth dissemination pipework, permitting it to accomplish a degree of execution surpassing the prerequisites inside current industry guidelines in the UK.

The definition of Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation upheld this methodology. According to our study, it is seen that by introducing an Energy Technology List-suggested particularly of Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation, it is conceivable to essentially diminish overheating hours in communal regions when contrasted and a BS 5422: 2009 pipe insulation specification with rubber lined pipe support brackets.
