Knauf, a family name, and a corporate group of global dimensions. At the same time 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 with great thermal performance, and with a continuous layer of insulation encapsulating the building, avoids the risk of thermal bridges and interstitial condensation.
Knauf Warm Wall systems and finishes are designed to be low maintenance, and with good building management and inspections will provide a good performance and longevity of the system over the buildings 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, it will make a real impact on 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, steel or timber framed construction are all possible with a Warm Wall system, and being able to meet NHBC standards for residential project, with a cavity rail system are all possible with a Knauf system.
Choice 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 designs.
