Kingspan Air Cell Insulwhite® Thermo Reflective Insulation
Australian-made Kingspan Air-Cell Insulwhite ® is the next generation in reflective insulation, representing an evolutionary improvement from traditional bubble insulation. The innovative crossed-linked closed-cell core has better thermal resistance than traditional bubble insulation of the same thickness and improved fire safety, complying with more stringent international fire standards. Kingspan Air-Cell Insulwhite® comprises a cross-linked, closed-cell insulation core sandwiched by a highly reflective foil facing on the upper side and a white facing on the other side

2 in 1 Ceiling Lining and Thermal Insulation
Kingspan Air Cell Insulwhite® is designed to provide a protective, corrosive resistant for use in a variet of applications including show rooms, sport centres and retail warehouses where a white ceiling-like appearance is desired. Exposed rafter ceiling insulation effectively removes the need for a hanging ceiling or similar – Air Cell Insulwhite has a clean finish, in addition to providing an excellent level of protection from the radiant heat emitting through the roof above. If you’re converting an attic into a dwelling, think Insulwhite! Of course it’s possible to install thermal bulk insulation between the exposed rafters, and attach plasterboard or another lining. But with Kingspan Air-Cell Insulwhite, you get a 2 in 1 insulation solution – lining and insulating your ceiling at the same time.
