Kooltherm K17 Makes Residential Retrofit Easy

Renovating a home can be time consuming and painful. Demolishing walls and ceilings and obtaining the necessary building consents (which could cost upwards of $500) can be a long drawn out process.

But it doesn’t have to be. Why bother taking down the old plasterboard when builders can build straight over the top and achieve the same results without needing council approval?

Kingspan’s Kooltherm K17 Insulated Plasterboard simplifies the process by combining insulation with plasterboard. It is designed to be a fast, cheap and clean alternative that makes renovating more energy efficient.

The rigid board insulation is factory bonded to plasterboard, making it the perfect two-in-one renovation solution. Its high-performance R2.0 rating in only a 50mm thickness means homeowners can still benefit from the same comfort and efficiency, with less cost and less mess.

No demolition means no skip bins, no time away from the house and no line inspections. It will cut the cost of a renovation, allowing the homeowner to enjoy the new room even sooner.

Manufactured with no CFC/HCFC meaning zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP), the fibre-free product is friendlier to work with and nicer on the environment.

Avoid the itch that comes with installing traditional batt insulation and the mess of demolishing pre-existing walls. Simply install the new insulated plasterboard straight over the top of the existing plasterboard and the job is done.

The installation is quick and easy with only eight simple steps. Once completed, the insulation will form a continuous barrier over any existing wall, reducing heat loss as a result of thermal bridging.

Kingspan’s Kooltherm K17 is building the walls of the future with its slim profile, super high performance and ease of installation. Look towards K17 for upcoming renovation projects.
