Insulation materials in Kenya plays a major role in the construction sector both for residential and commercial. Kenya construction industry has emulated other countries in providing insulation solutions especially for commercial office designs. Sound and heat insulation is the best solution for a safe working and living environment
We offer a range of insulation materials that can be used to insulate floors, walls and ceilings. Insulation should be used to increase the airborne noise reduction between rooms and the reduction of heat from one medium to the other. Sound insulation slabs are produced to a higher density than heat insulation, when you are using insulation to soundproof a room an acoustic slab should be used rather than heat insulation.
Insulation Materials in Kenya
Insulation is any material or means that retards the transmission of electricity, heat, moisture, shock or sound from one medium to another. There are many types of insulation such as heat insulation, sound insulation, packaging insulation, pipe ducts insulation and many more
We will be discussing about the various types of insulation materials. Furthermore you can order from us here best prices guaranteed. We source our products from reputable companies in the World with international accreditation such as Knauf and saint Gobain
Sound Insulation Materials in Kenya
Sound insulation materials helps businesses improve efficiency and staff privacy in offices while at home you want a calm environment especially when living near busy and noisy environment. It also solves unnecessary noise in residential homes. Some of the common insulation materials includes; Rockwool (mineral wool) insulation, Fiberglass insulation, Polyethylene insulation form and Polyurethane insulation form
Heat Insulation Materials in Kenya
Heat Insulation also known as Thermal insulation helps retard the penetration of heat either from outside to inside (Such as roofs) or from inside to outside (Such as Pipes and Ducts) The rooms or buildings that are thermally insulated remain warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Hence, Thermally insulated building provides great comfort both in summer and winter. A building provided with thermal-insulation requires less power to maintain the desired temperature conditions in the building. This saves energy and extra costs.
Rockwool Insulation ranks the best and ideal sound insulation material that is economical and highly efficient. If you are looking for sound insulation material that enhances sound efficiency and eliminates sound pollution, look no further than Rockwool Insulation the most popular soundproofing material in the World manufactured by Knauf.
Fiberglass insulation is the most common insulation material used in modern times. Because of how it is made, by effectively weaving fine strands of glass into an insulation material, fiberglass is able to minimize heat transfer. The main downside of fiberglass is the danger of handling it. Since fiberglass is made out of finely woven silicon, glass powder and tiny shards of glass are formed. These can cause damage to the eyes, lungs, and even skin if the proper safety equipment isn’t worn. Nevertheless, when the proper safety equipment is used, fiberglass installation can be performed without incident. Fiberglass is an excellent non-flammable insulation material, with R-values ranging from R-2.9 to R-3.8 per inch. If you are seeking a cheap insulation this is definitely the way to go, though installing it requires safety precautions. Be sure to use eye protection, masks, and gloves when handling this product
Polyethylene Insulation Form
Polyethylene insulation is closed-cell foam, meaning its structure is made of millions of tiny globules, sealed off from each other. This insulating materials have better sound-insulation sound-absorbing and heat insulation properties. Some advantages of polyethylene acoustic form include minimal low water retention, extra stability and structural strength, excellent weathering, ageing resistance. Other advantages are resistance against dirt, humidity and freezing temperatures. The form is also resistant to solvents, petroleum products, and is antimicrobial as well, inhibiting the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. A resilient material, polyethylene returns to original state after compression, while still yielding enough to provide cushion and security where it is needed. It is these characteristics, combined with its versatility and customization possibilities that makes polyethylene useful in so many applications.
