Knauf, a family name and a corporate group of global dimensions, synonymous with a type of corporate culture which has become rare. Knauf is a typical family firm in spite of its size and this is precisely the reason for its amazing success. It is the short and direct decision-making paths, the courage to tackle new ideas, innovations, investments and the wealth of ideas that characterises the company.


Knauf Drywall systems will meet all your application and construction needs. Innovation, ease of use and integration go together to provide powerful, high performance and simple-to-implement solutions across all building sectors.

Knauf offer a full range of plasterboards to meet all drylining requirements, including high performance boards for greater fire, moisture, vapour, sound and impact results. Use in conjunction with Knauf jointing compounds, plasters, fixings, plasterboard adhesive and metal systems.


Knauf Warm Wall Systems are the most cost effective way to insulate new and existing buildings, providing efficient thermal properties and allowing for creative design.

An external wall insulation system will provide a weatherproof skin to the building, giving great thermal performance. With a continuous layer of insulation encapsulating the building the risk of thermal bridges and interstitial condensation can be avoided.

Knauf Warm Wall Systems and Finishes are designed to be low maintenance, and, with good building management and inspections, will provide performance and longevity throughout the building’s lifespan.

By placing insulation on the outside of the building the internal floor space is not compromised and creates a `tea cosy` effect around the building. Warm Wall systems are not restricted in thickness like cavity wall construction and can be used in certain circumstances up to 400mm in thickness.

By using a Warm Wall System on a project you will make a real impact on the reduction of CO2 emissions and improved thermal performance to meet or exceed part L Building Regulations. Knauf systems will lower energy bills for the building occupier and enable the occupants to have a comfortable internal temperature.

Solid concrete walls, brick construction, block work, and steel or timber-framed construction are all possible with a Warm Wall System, as are residential projects with a cavity rail system due to its ability to meet NHBC standards.

Choices of colour, texture and grain size offer a wide range of design possibilities, giving the building designer great scope for flair, creativity and flexibility in design.

Knauf is a family name and a corporate group of global dimensions, founded in 1932 by the brothers Karl and Dr Alfons N Knauf, today the company is still managed by the family members who strive to provide quality solutions for building materials around the globe.


Knauf provide sustainable high performance insulation products, ranging from Glasswool rolls and slabs to high density extruded polystyrene sheets used in specialist applications.

The product range is produced in state of the art, modern facilities, supported by ongoing research & development, helping to enhance the energy efficiency of your building. And even better, their Glass products are produced from over 80% recycled material! Glasswool products are highly versatile and can used in various applications throughout you build.

Our staff can take you through the process and asses your requirements to make sure you get the perfect product for your project.
