PROBLEM AND SPACE SOLVERS

PROBLEM & SPACE SOLVERS

VACUPOR® Vacuum Insulation Panels can help to transform any project where insulation is required. Because of the ultra thin nature of the panels they are exceptional to Create Space and Save Energy. They can contribute to the reduction of the carbon footprint of a building, reducing Green House Gas emissions.

Vacutherm’s VACUPOR® vacuum insulation panels are up to 10 times thinner than other traditional insulation materials. So if you have an application where you would like to save space or a problem because traditional inslation materials are to thick – then VACUPOR® could be the solution. To give an idea of where vaupor could assist see some typical real life examples below:

  • Floors – Where, during a renovation, removing an existing solid floor to insulate with traditional insulation would be disruptive, very time consuming and costly. Laying VACUPOR® over the existing floor and a thin floating floor gives a rapid solution that can easily meet or better current building regulation requirements.
  • Curtain Walling – In curtain walling applications spandrel (solid) panels are regularly required.using traditional insultion materials requires a large increase of thickness of the panel to meet the thermal requirements. This generally means having the panel encroach into the internal space of the building. Using VACUPOR® within a sealed glazed unit usually means that building regulation requirments are met within the thickness of the standard sealed unit.
  • OEM Integration – within mchinery and product applications space is usually at a premium. Therefore where heat needs to be conserved the use of traditional insulation materials can be extremely prohibitive. The use of VACUPOR® can ‘free-up’ valuable space. Added to this because bespoke shapes and sizes can be manufactured virtually any situation can accomodated.

 

So if you have an insulation problem where space is a real problem give us a call on 016973 20483, we will be pleased to help you.

Popular Q&A’S

How much more effficient are VIP's than 'normal' insulation materials?

VACUPOR® VIP’s are the most efficient on the market. The table and picture below gives an idea of thickness of a number of insulation materials giving the same performance.

  • Minernal wools                       100mm
  • Expanded polystyrene           80mm
  • PIR’s                                          60mm
  • VACUPOR®                            10mm

Are they accepted by building regulations?

Yes, they are accepted under current buildings regs and have a CE Certificate.

I know I can't pierce a VIP panel, but how fragile are they?

People become concerned about the fragility of vacupor. However its not like handling a box of eggs, but some care needs to be taken. We liken it to handling a double glazed window unit. They can take more punishment than you think. However abuse them, like throwing them out of a second story window, and they will break!

Can anybody install VACUPOR® panels

Yes. Anyone can install VACUPOR® panels. You just to have care during the installation. For example keeping sharp objects and items away from the panels to ensure they are not pierced.

Where can I buy VACUPOR® panels?

we offer VACUPOR® VIP’s direct to the end user or integrators. We do not sell through merchants or distributors, this means there are no middle men and you will receive the usual Vacutherm outstanding service.

Are VIP's new, I have never heard of them?

VACUPOR® is not new as an insulation material. We have been offering it in the UK for nearly 10 years. The first use of VACUPOR® in a construction setting was around the turn of the century, in Germany. Since the extraordinary qualities of VACUPOR® have spread around the world.

Can I cut VACUPOR® panels?

Unlike traditional insulation materials VACUPOR® panels should not be cut. This is because each panel holds a vacuum, similar to a flask, which ensures their world beating insulating properties. However VACUPOR® is available in virtually any size to accommodate your requirements.

How long do VACUPOR® panels last?

The panels are designed to last the life time of your building. During official testing the panels are put through accelerated aging tests. This means we can give a certified performance for the panels for the first 30 years of their life.

Are VIP's used in anything other than buildings?

VACUPOR® panels are used in areas that your would not initially think about. We supply to a number of companies who integrate the panels into their own products. However the most common use for VIP’s are within A+, or better, fridges and freezers.

How much do VIP's cost?

VACUPOR® is not the cheapest insulation material on the market. However in numerous cases its use will pay back because:

  • Space is saved – allowing a project to be realised
  • Time scales are reduced – alleviating expensive site site set up costs and prelims.

Can VACUPOR® panels be mechanically fixed?

No. mechanically fixing the panels means the internal vacuum will be lost and the insulation properties significantly reduced. We recommend either clamping in place or adhering in some circumstances. If you have any questions regarding this just give us a call.
