EcoTherm’s insulated plasterboard achieves Energy Saving Trust (EST) approval

EcoTherm Insulation UK Ltd is delighted to announce that as of August 2013 its insulated plasterboard, Eco-Liner, has been approved as an Energy Saving Trust Recommended product.  The Energy Saving Trust (EST) offers impartial advice to communities and households on how to reduce carbon emissions, use water more sustainably and save money on energy bills.  Only products that meet strict criteria on energy efficiency can carry the coveted ‘EST Recommended’ label and Eco-Liner is the first in EcoTherm’s product range to achieve the approval.

Eco-Liner is a thermal laminate comprising of 12.5mm tapered edge plasterboard bonded to a PIR (polyisocyanurate) rigid insulation board, enabling the process of dry lining and insulating to be completed in a single fix – saving both time and money.  Suitable for both new build and refurbishment, the board can be either mechanically fixed or dot and dabed and is supported by EcoTherm’s fuss free Technical Services team who are available to answer any installation or specification queries.  Eco-Liner will also help homeowners save space where it matters most – internally.  The excellent thermal performance of PIR allows homeowners to insulate internal walls without significantly impacting on their living space as they will require approximately half the thickness of traditional insulants.

Due to its low weight EcoTherm’s Eco-Liner is easy to use and is fibre free so won’t cause skin irritation.  Its durability means it will not rot, shrink, absorb moisture, or decay and will therefore continue to deliver design insulation values throughout the life of the building.

Eco-Liner can be found along with other high calibre energy saving products on the Energy Saving Trust Recommended products website.  For further information please visit the Eco-Liner product page or contact EcoTherm’s Technical Services team for free advice.
